Several companies are taking climate-conscious decisions to make India's dream of a carbon-neutral country a reality. E-commerce giant Flipkart has committed that it will source 100 per cent of its electricity requirements from renewable energy sources for its entire operations by 2030.
The company said in a statement, "In line with its Net Zero commitments of reducing the Scope 1 and 2 climate change impacts by 2030, this move from Flipkart builds on strong existing action, with the company already meeting 14 per cent of its electricity requirements from renewable sources against the baseline consumption of 2021."
Further commenting on the decision, Rajnesh Kumar, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Flipkart, mentioned, "Being the first Indian e-commerce group to commit to 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2030 and to join RE100, Flipkart looks forward to working in collaboration with this global cohort of influential companies, led by Climate Group."
The company will achieve the goal by adopting rooftop solar power, open access, and evolving market instruments. Kumar added that for the Flipkart Group, it has been a priority to integrate sustainable practises across operations.
