Dabur said this move will help the organisation to achieve carbon neutrality in its operations. It will also help the company to reduce its percentage of carbon emissions annually. “Electric Vehicles are an ideal solution to replace conventional fuel vehicles since they are energy-efficient, green and environment friendly. I am confident that this move will also help us propagate the use of electric vehicles even in the hinterland, helping India achieve its Green Energy Mission faster," said Dabur India Ltd CEO Mohit Malhotra.
