Adani Transmission announces net-zero target by 2050

AHMEDABAD: Private power distribution company, Adani Transmission Limited, on Wednesday submitted its greenhouse gases (GHG) emission reduction plans and targets to Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
SBTi is an international initiative to contain global warming. As part of the detailed plan submitted, ATL will devise a strategy to restrict global warming to 1.5°C.
The company has committed to reduce its absolute scope-I and scope-II GHG emissions by 72.7% by FY 2032. It has also committed to reduce absolute scope-III GHG emissions by 27.5% by FY 2031. The company will also increase its share of renewable energy to 60% by FY 26-27 besides other emission reduction actions. ATL subsidiary, Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited has also introduced green tariffs giving customers opting for green energy, a green power certificate.
ATL is also a signatory of the UN Energy Compact at the COP26 held at Glasgow last year.
Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, Adani Transmission Ltd, said, “A culmination of several smaller actions such as energy efficiency initiatives at sub-stations, de-linking of substations from the grid for auxiliary power while connecting them with solar energy, and introduction of efficient transmission lines aimed at reducing losses, combined with wider actions such as the introduction of green tariff at AEML, will significantly contribute towards achieving positive climate action.”
