Home textiles major Welspun India Ltd said it has united with the global coalition to undertake climate action aligned with Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) of Net-Zero standard and Business Ambition for 1.5 degrees Celsius to diminish greenhouse gas emissions.
As part of the pledge, Welspun India will strive to achieve net-zero emissions by setting up a target aligned with the SBTi Net-Zero Framework, the company said in a regulatory filing. It will also develop a decarbonisation roadmap to minimise its emission across the value chain operations through initiatives.

Welspun India Joint Managing Director and CEO Dipali Goenka said, “Businesses can no longer afford to take a wait-and-see approach to climate change.
The time to act and safeguard our tomorrow is now. Our commitment to the¬†Science Based Targets initiative Net-Zero Standard is a step in that direction.”
