Shree Ramkrishna Exports eyes zero carbon emissions at two Surat facilities by 2024
Shree Ramkrishna Exports announced its commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions at two of its diamond crafting facilities in Surat by 2024. The diamond manufacturing business aims to set an industry-wide example.
“As a purpose driven company, we believe our commitment to quality and to society and the environment are of the utmost importance,” said Shree Ramkrishna Exports’ founder and chairman Govind Dholakia, the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council reported on its website.
The business aims to reach net zero six years earlier than India’s goal of 2030. In order to achieve this, Shree Ramkrishna Exports has partnered with The Global Network for Zero, an international leadership collective dedicated to providing solutions for reaching zero carbon emissions.
“We are committed to mobilising the wider industry and other sectors to join us,” said Jayanti Narola, entrepreneur at the business. “Achieving net zero (carbon emissions) at SRK Empire and SRK House by 2024 will set an industry-wide example of how to completely transform large-scale operations for the betterment of the planet.”
The business will focus on its SRK Empire and SRK House facilities in Surat for the zero emissions push. The facilities are already certified as LEED Platinum and also follow eco-friendly procedures for water, waste, and transportation.
“What leaders like SRK are doing has a generational effect,” said The Global Network for Zero’s president and CEO Mahesh Ramanujam. “When leaders make bold decisions and put their personal brand and commitment behind it, waves are made and transformation happens. But it also takes implementation at all levels. When bold decisions at the top translate to meaningful action on the ground, it can change the world.”
