Ever since its inception, Mahindra has believed in doing good for the communities in which it operates, a philosophy we call ‘Rise For Good’. This goes beyond philanthropy and CSR, and is more about an attitude, a way of life. The larger goal is to drive positive change for all our stakeholders.
This year too, the Mahindra Group has made a big impact, be it though its commitment to serve the planet or through efforts to enable girl child education. Here are the key highlights from this year.
- Mahindra Group committed to becoming Carbon Neutral by 2040
At the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, Mahindra Group made the commitment to go carbon neutral by 2040. With a focus on energy efficiency and the use of renewable power to achieve this target, Mahindra Group is leading the global fight against climate change. This year Mahindra’s Igatpuri manufacturing plant became India’s first Carbon Neutral manufacturing facility.
M&M is the first Indian company to announce its internal Carbon Price of USD 10 per ton of carbon emitted to fund investments required to pursue the path of carbon neutrality. It has doubled the energy productivity of its automotive business almost 12 years ahead of schedule. M&M is also the first company in the world to sign on to the EP100 program, which is the global, collaborative initiative of influential businesses that pledges to double energy productivity by 2030.
