Ambuja Cement has embedded sustainability in its organisational culture which has been the key differentiator for the company. 
 
The company has sharpened its focus on water conservation at its plants’ surrounding areas and at customer end during construction. 
 
In 2020, Ambuja facilitated the installation of rooftop rainwater harvesting systems at 268 construction sites, modular curing at 2,391 construction sites and concrete mix proportion services at 14,271 construction sites.
 
These initiatives (concrete mix proportions, modular curing, and rainwater harvesting) have helped Ambuja in saving approximately 70 million ltr of water, a robust step towardsextending the benefits of sustainable water consumption to its customers.
 
In 2020, the company also developed and revived 83 water harvesting and recharging structures and 14 dams for the benefit of the community, amounting to a storage capacity of 600 million ltr, taking the total count to 14,060 water harvesting and recharge structures, 458 check dams and 59,240 million ltr.
 
In 2020, Ambuja Cement reduced its carbon footprint to 531 kg CO2 per tonne of cement and reused 8.2 million tonne of waste in cement production. Furthermore, it also reduced the freshwater withdrawal up to 77 ltr per tonne of cementitious material, and added around three lakh new beneficiaries under its community outreach programmes. 
 
Green energy is another focus area for the company as it has invested Rs 525 crore towards waste heat recovery systems (WHRS), which reduces its conventional fuel consumption. 
 
Apart from this, Ambuja Cement’s initiative Neev Abhiyan is aimed at helping masons and contractors grow their business through the enhancement of their knowledge and skills. To create an entire ecosystem of sustainability, Ambuja Cement, through this initiative, conducts skill-building workshops on topics like steel estimation, sustainable design, earthquake-resistant construction techniques, repairing and waterproofing. 
 
It is the first company in the industry to adopt the True Value accounting method for sustainability, which encompasses the three pillars of sustainability -- people, planet and profit -- to emerge as the most competitive and sustainable company in the country.
