Tata Power on Monday said it has committed to reducing emissions in alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). SBTi is a project which drives ambitious climate action in the private sector by enabling companies to set science-based emissions reduction targets.
It is a partnership between CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and We Mean Business Coalition.
“Tata Power has committed to set emission reduction targets in alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi),” a company statement said.
The company’s commitment to the SBTi has been accepted and published under the companies taking action category on the website, it added.
“Mitigating the impact of global warming requires swift and strong action. Tata Power has committed to SBTi and is working on an ambitious plan to drive the transition to decarbonized energy models, aiding the global climate action agenda,” Tata Power CEO and MD Praveer Sinha said.
“To achieve the emission reduction targets, we are moving rapidly to a green energy portfolio and continuously exploring and adopting technology based solutions. We are confident of being #FutureReady and will continue lighting up lives,” he added.
