Saint-Gobain India is betting on renewable energy, natural gas and hydrogen to produce products with lower-embodied carbon footprint in a bid to achieve Net Zero by 2050, according to a top official.
As the first step in this direction, the Indian subsidiary of the French multinational firm on Tuesday announced the introduction of glass with low-carbon footprint from its World Glass Complex at Sriperumbudur, near here.
“It is India’s first low-carbon glass,” said MD Glass Business A.R. Unnikrishnan during an interaction “It reduces carbon footprint by 40% approximately compared to our existing products.”
Mr. Unnikrishnan said the product could be made on account of using two-third recycled content as raw material, natural gas and electricity from renewable energy sources. “We will try to achieve Net Zero by 2050,” he added.
