Adani Transmission ltd
The Confederation of Indian Industry-ITC Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Development (CII-ITC CESD) has certified Adani Transmission Limited (ATL), India's largest private transmission and distribution company, as 'Single-use Plastic Free.
The certification acknowledges ATL's voluntary efforts in implementing single-use plastic-free measures across its 37 operational locations in 10 states, which were evaluated through on-site assessments and documentation reviews.
ATL launched several projects to become one of the top 10 ESG benchmarking electric utility companies worldwide.
One of these projects was to become Single-use Plastic Free, which has been successfully implemented across 37 of its operational locations, including substations, transmission line clusters, and stores.
This certification, valid from February 22, 2023, to February 21, 2024, aligns with ATL's ESG strategy and commitment to achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goal:12. The company has disclosed its efforts on material issues to stakeholders and investors via its Sustainability Report.
ATL's efforts to become a "Single-use Plastic Free" company is a crucial step towards achieving a circular economy for plastics by 2030. As a result of this achievement, ATL has now added "Zero Waste to Landfill certification", "Water Positive certification", and "Single-use Plastic Free Company" to its list of accomplishments. This makes ATL the first Indian electrical utility to achieve all three certifications.
