Ambuja Cement aspires to be the most competitive and sustainable company in the cement manufacturing industry. Acting in a sustainable manner is not only a business imperative but also provides the company with a competitive advantage
Ambuja cement continues to set industry benchmarks in tackling carbon emissions and creating sustainable solutions. Aligned with the vision of LafargeHolcim, the parent company, Ambuja Cement is committed to group-level targets to mitigate the effects of climate change. The company has also taken the lead in encouraging the construction sector to formulate sustainable development strategies in India.
Ambuja cement’s sustainable development initiatives cover a wide spectrum. From harnessing clean technology to using industrial wastes in cement production, energy conservation to exploiting renewable energy resources, emissions reduction to creating institutionalised mechanisms to monitor environmental risks and strict adherence to the company’s ‘zero non-compliance’ regime, Ambuja Cement’s sustained efforts have helped ingrain the sustainability agenda in the company’s DNA. All Ambuja Cements Limited plants are ISO 14001 certified.
Ambuja cement’s vision to become the most competitive and sustainable company in the industry has led the company to adopt True Value, the triple bottom-line accounting method which encompasses the three pillars of sustainability – people, planet, and profit.
Good corporate governance practices, an overarching corporate environment policy, CSR initiatives, thrust on health and safety at workplace and a sustainable supply chain policy have helped the company cement its sustainability agenda.
With an eye on the future, Ambuja cement has conceived the Sustainable Development Ambition 2030 providing strategic direction to the company’s long-term sustainability vision.
