GreenBiz, a media and events company that accelerates the transition to a clean economy by recognising the inextricable link between climate change and social change, has included Mahindra’s pioneering work on sustainability in its ‘12 C-suite sustainability champions for 2022’.
Anirban Ghosh, Chief Sustainability Officer, Mahindra Group, has been recognised as one of the 12 business executives who stand out in key areas that are integral to accelerating action on climate and delivering positive social benefits. These leaders seek to steer their companies to help build a better world as good business practices.
Ghosh evokes adventure in his work to incorporate sustainability and climate risks into core business operations, risk management and even its total quality management approach, dubbed ’the Mahindra Way’.
A thought leader and regular columnist, Ghosh has contributed to a slate of organisations deep in the details of the sustainability profession, including Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Early in 2020, he described climate activism as sparking the chance to discover a low-carbon way of life in harmony with nature, an opportunity "to literally reboot the world.”
Ghosh established Mahindra’s overall sustainability framework and a company-wide dashboard to measure results. Mahindra’s decarbonisation efforts focus on four factors germane to each business, including energy efficiency, renewables, electric mobility and offsets.
"Our sustainability framework separates the issues related to people, planet and profit so that it doesn’t seem like a big jumble, and then translates each one of the issues into tangible projects and actions, which then show up in each of the businesses’ roadmaps," he said in early 2020.
Mahindra was the first Indian company to set a carbon price internally, helping to decarbonise its energy use, reduce waste and bolster water security.
