Ambuja Cement at a glance

Ambuja Cements Ltd is India’s foremost cement company known for its hassle-free, home-building solutions. Unique products tailor-made for Indian climatic conditions, sustainable operations and initiatives that advance the company’s philosophy of contributing to the larger good of the society, have made it the most trusted cement brand in India

Ambuja Cements Ltd, a part of the global conglomerate LafargeHolcim, is among the leading cement companies in India. Ambuja Cement has provided hassle-free, home-building solutions with its unique sustainable development projects and environment-friendly practices since it started operations. Currently, Ambuja Cement has a cement capacity of 29.65 million tonnes with five integrated cement manufacturing plants and eight cement grinding units across the country.

The company has many firsts to its credit – a captive port with four terminals that has facilitated timely, cost-effective, cleaner shipments of bulk cement to its customers; its latest launch – Ambuja Plus Roof Special – a special quality PPC cement with advanced SPE technology for concrete that is denser and leak proof, resulting in strengthened roofs.

Ambuja Cement is the industry leader in responsible use of resources, both natural and man-made. The company has been certified five times water positive, a feat achieved through conservation efforts and increasing water efficiency in its plants. It is also plastic positive, by burning as much as over 50,000 tonnes of plastic waste in its kilns, equivalent to 1.54 times of total plastic used. The company also generates 6.5% of its energy from renewable resources.

Sustainable profitable growth is ingrained in the company’s DNA. Ambuja Cement’s multi-pronged strategy, including triple bottom line accounting method; True Value; good corporate governance practices; overarching corporate environment policy; and sustainable supply chain policy has helped cement the company's credentials as a sustainable manufacturer. Ambuja Cement's Sustainable Development Ambition 2030 provides strategic direction to the company's long-term sustainability vision. All Ambuja Cement plants are ISO 14001 certified.

Ambuja Knowledge Centres (AKCs), a unique initiative by the company, serves as a knowledge sharing platform for construction professionals that includes practical workshops on mix design and quality supervision. Currently, 30 AKCs are functional across India.

The company also works closely with communities that live around its plants, through its CSR arm, the Ambuja Cement Foundation (ACF). With presence in 21 locations spread across 11 states of India, ACF implements need-based and participatory programmes in the thematic areas of water resource development, health and sanitation, women empowerment, rural infrastructure, education and agro-based/skill-based livelihood creation.

The company's most distinctive attribute is its approach to business. Ambuja Cement follows a unique homegrown philosophy  that gives people the authority to set their own targets and the freedom to achieve their goals. Its focus has been consistent on two major building blocks that have resonated through its daily operations – Quality (of products) and Safety (of all those involved in the creation of its products).

The company's quintessential spirit has ensured a product that embodies Giant Strength.
