In a momentous step towards sustainability and environmental responsibility, Hindustan Zinc, India’s largest & only integrated producer of Zinc, Lead and silver, has chosen GreenLine Mobility Solutions Ltd (GreenLine), a part of Essar Group and a pioneer in green mobility solutions, as its sustainable logistics partner and is set to deploy GreenLine’s LNG-powered fleet in its supply chain and transportation operations.
LNG-powered vehicles significantly reduce emissions compared to diesel and align perfectly with the sustainability goals of both organizations. This initiative will not only reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation but also set new industry standards for green logistics. Speaking on the occasion, Arun Misra, CEO of Hindustan Zinc, said, "At Hindustan Zinc, we have embedded sustainable practices in every aspect of our operations to create a greener future for all. Sustainability is an integral part of our company’s identity and represents the core commitment of our management and employees.
"Deployment of LNG Vehicle aligns with our approved SBTi targets to reduce 50 percent of absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions and further reduction of 25 percent of absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by FY2030 from the base year FY2020. By introducing LNG vehicles, we are not just showcasing our commitment towards decarbonizing Indian mining but also paving the way for a transport revolution. This is yet another step towards our vision of net zero by 2050 or sooner, and we look forward to scaling this up in the coming months".
