Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Ltd. (MHRIL) has committed to join RE 100, a global campaign led by The Climate Group bringing together the world’s most influential businesses committed to 100% renewable power. The company has a target to power 100% of its global operations with renewable electricity by 2050. In 2016, MHRIL had signed on EP100, committing to doubling energy productivity by 2030 from a baseline year of 2008-09. It thus becomes the first company in the hospitality sector to sign on both the programs.
Said Kavinder Singh, MD & CEO, Mahindra Holidays, “By signing on both EP 100 and RE 100, we have reinforced our commitment to achieving our renewable energy and energy productivity targets. We believe these initiatives are in alignment with our mission of ‘Good Living, Happy Families’.”
Currently 7% of MHRIL’s current energy requirements are sourced from renewable sources that amounts to 1,470 kWp which is largely solar power. On the EP100 front, the company has been reducing overall energy consumption using energy efficient devices and alternate materials of construction for their new resorts.
