Hindustan Zinc’s Pantnagar Metal Plant ( PMP) has become Vedanta Limited’s first unit utilising 100 percent green power in its operations. The PMP unit signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Uttarakhand Power Corporation Limited to provide renewable energy through hydropower.
The company intends to progress in the future by reducing its carbon footprint in accordance with its emission control journey. Pantnagar’s transition to green power will help reduce carbon emissions by 37,936 MT. This move will allow the company to leave a positive footprint in the areas of product management and green product development.
Recently in September 2022, Hindustan Zinc acquired a 26 per cent stake in Serentica Renewables India, a special purpose vehicle for Rs 3.5 billion. In addition, the company signed a long-term renewable power delivery agreement with a capacity of 200 MW.
