Bengaluru (Karnataka) –

Hitachi ABB Power Grids in India on Wednesday announced a comprehensive programme to achieve carbon-neutrality targets by 2030 in its operations, reaffirming its commitment to a sustainable energy future.

 Contributing to the drive to build back better, the pioneering technology leader is adopting a three-dimensional approach to decarbonisation.

 The programme is designed to reduce the carbon footprint of its own operations and in the products that it delivers.

 The company expects to achieve its carbon-neutral target of 100 per cent fossil-free electricity by the close of FY22. It is also electrifying its operations to deliver further efficiencies over the coming years.
