Adani Transmission Ltd (ATL), India’s largest private electricity distribution company and the transmission arm of the diversified group Adani Grouppresented its plans to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, focusing on the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative, an international initiative aimed at containing global warming.



ATL has submitted its detailed plan and GHG emission reduction targets to SBTi within one year as part of its commitment to help contain global warming.

As part of its continued focus on sustainable growth and its net zero journey, ATL has committed to SBTi in October 2021. ATL will act in compliance with much-needed climate action and develop a strategy to limit global warming to 1 .5 degrees Celsius.

To achieve these objectives related to the SBTi commitment, ATL has implemented specific strategies. In a first-of-its-kind initiative in the country, ATL subsidiary AEML (Adani Electricity Mumbai Ltd) has introduced green tariffs, which allow AEML consumers to switch to green energy and receive a green energy certificate each month. This initiative is popular with consumers who want to reduce their carbon footprint.

“We take seriously all initiatives aimed at contributing to India’s climate commitment through resolute climate action,” said Anil SardanaMD & CEO, Adani Transmission Ltd. energy efficiency initiatives at substations, disconnecting substations from the grid for auxiliary power while connecting them to solar power, and introducing efficient transmission lines to reduce losses, combined with broader actions such as the introduction of green pricing at AEML, will make a significant contribution to achieving positive climate action.”

Joining the SBTi is an important step in India’s commitments to the Paris Climate Agreement. ATL became a signatory to the United Nations Energy Pact at COP26 held in Glasgow in 2021. Through SBTi, companies set science-based emission reduction targets – across their entire supply chain. value – which are consistent with keeping global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. levels. Companies hired by the SBTi have 24 months to submit their objectives. ATL, after committing to SBTi in October 2021, is one of the few companies to submit emissions reduction targets within a year.

SBTi is a collaboration between the CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It defines and promotes best practices in science-based goal setting and independently assesses corporate goals.
