Dalmia Cement:
Greening the Gray
Mahendra Singhi paves the way to make his company better than net zero

Cement is often literally the foundation of our infrastructure. It’s an essential product, but also a problematic one. Globally, 8% of our carbon footprint comes from its production. Mahendra Singhi, CEO of India’s Dalmia Cement is taking on the problem using a multi-pronged strategy he describes as “clean, green, and profitable.” But utilizing alternative energy, better mixes & biomass to reach net zero is not enough for Singhi. His true goal is for Dalmia to become a net negative carbon producer by 2040 .
