At Tata Power, Corporate Sustainability integrates economic progress, social responsibility and environmental concerns with the objective of improving the quality of life for all stakeholders, now and for generations to come. We view it as an opportunity to make a difference and remain committed to the issues of resource conservation, energy efficiency, environment protection and enrichment and development of local communities in and around our areas of operations.
In our drive towards clean environment, we are trying to set standards in the development and implementation of cutting edge eco-friendly technologies and processes for energy management. We have recently announced our intention to bring carbon capture and storage technologies from the research and pilot stages into large scale commercial application. We are working with policymakers and regulators to advance technology, strengthen the renewable energy portfolio, accelerate the development of cost effective energy efficiency programs and manage consumers’ demand for electricity. We have to work with our stakeholders if we are to make significant progress in this direction. Our 9 decades of track record of successful innovation and leadership gives us the confidence that we can find ways to address climate change that pay important dividends in the future for our customers, shareholders and society.
We continue to intensify our focus on safety and health, and we are resolute in our determination to improve. We are focused not on numbers, but on the human aspects of health and safety — the spouse who is left a widow, the children who lose a parent or the employee who is recovering from an injury. At its core, safety is a personal obligation, and we won’t stop trying to get that message across because the loss of a single life is completely unacceptable to us.
Sustainability is a journey, not a destination, and ours has just begun.
