JK Lakshmi Cement on has signed an agreement with Amplus Solar to set up a 56MWp solar power plant for its Durg facility, located in Chhattisgarh. This will form part of the company's ‘Green Pahal, Behtar Kal’ campaign that creates awareness about improving energy efficiency and saving the environment

With this initiative, JK Lakshmi Cement will be able to replace 92m units with green electricity in the first year that will help reduce its CO2 emissions by 73,000t, equivalent to over 3.3m trees saved.

“We support the country’s vision to achieve net zero emissions by 2070. As a responsible corporate, we have taken multiple steps to reduce both direct and indirect carbon emissions. Last month, for the first time in India, we deployed LNG trucks to transport the raw material. Now with switching to solar energy at our Durg Plant, nearly 80 per cent of energy requirement of the plant will be met through renewable energy source," said Arun Shukla, president and director, JK Lakshmi Cement Ltd.
