Economic progress and long-term business sustainability are today threatened by the real and adverse consequences of global warming and accelerated climate change. ITC has responded to the challenges emerging from the threat of global warming by aligning its corporate strategy with national priorities. Accordingly, in line with the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC), we have adopted strategies to address climate change-related impacts and developed appropriate mitigation and adaptation plans. Our unique approach has been to integrate these plans with our business strategies and not as separate activities.
Our Strategies Include
Identifying and evaluating climate change risks for each business.
Reducing the environmental impact of our processes, products and services and working towards creating a positive environmental footprint.
- Creating sustainable livelihoods and promoting sustainable agricultural practices.
Adopting a low carbon growth path through reduction in specific energy consumption and enhanced use of renewable energy sources.
Enlarging our carbon positive footprint through increased carbon sequestration by expanding forestry projects in wastelands.
Reducing specific freshwater intake and augmenting rainwater harvesting activities both on-site and off-site at watershed catchment areas.
Working towards minimising waste generation, maximising its reuse and recycling and using external post-consumer waste as raw material in our Units.
