Sajjan Jindal, Chairman at the JSW Group, said, “Since our honourable Prime Minister announced at Glasgow COP26 meeting that India strives to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2070, JSW Group’s new EV Policy is a unique initiative leading to increased adoption of EVs in India and enabling access to green mobility. We would continue to move ahead responsibly, singularly focused on reducing our own impacts, while being pioneers in the sustainability domain. The goal is to build ambition among corporate and government bodies to support India’s transition to net-zero by 2070."

Dilip Pattanayak, President and CHRO at the JSW Group, said, “As electric vehicles are more efficient than traditional IC engine vehicles, the JSW EV policy, effective January 2022, will set a benchmark for others to follow. EVs are not only environmentally-friendly but also cost-effective."

JSW Group is involved in various sectors, including steel, energy, infrastructure, cement, paints, venture capital and sports. Besides announcing the EV policy for employees, which will help them do its bit to contribute in EV adoption in the country, the company also has set itself a CO2 emission target for itself. JSW Steel, which is part of the JSW Group, has adopted a climate change policy and set an ambitious CO2 emission reduction target of 42 per cent over the base year of 2005 by 2030.
