Lodha announces carbon neutrality this World Environment Day

Lodha has announced the accomplishment of carbon neutrality in its operations – scope 1 and 2 emissions. This marks a significant milestone in the developer’s journey towards becoming a net-zero carbon company by 2050, laying a blueprint for the built sector to reduce carbon emissions, thus maximising the sector’s contribution to India’s 2070 net-zero target.
Over the past five years, Lodha reduced its scope 1 and 2 emissions by 82%. This was primarily made possible by transitioning to renewable energy sources for construction activities and owned assets, with an increase in share of renewable electricity from less than 1% to 83% in its overall electricity consumption between FY20-24.
On the significant occasion of World Environment Day, Lodha has yet again corroborated that unwavering commitment to sustainability and responsible building is ingrained in the very fabric of its being.
Commenting on the development, Head-ESG, Lodha, Aun Abdullah said, “At Lodha, we are proud to lead by example, by adopting a holistic approach to sustainability that recognizes the correlation between environmental, social, and economic factors. It is not just about attaining a milestone, but about setting a precedent of the possibilities that get unlocked when innovation meets determination. By leveraging the power of energy efficiency, renewable integration, and investments in carbon reduction projects outside our value chain, we are not just minimising our carbon footprint but also contributing to the prosperity of local economies, thus contributing our bit towards the vision of a responsibly developed India by 2047.”
