Environment Performance
Energy
We make conscious and serious attempts to conserve fossil fuels, by increasing our share of renewable energy consumption. A team of dedicated in-house Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) certified energy managers and auditors help us manage energy at our manufacturing facilities. We have now initiated energy audits at our major project sites. In 2016-17, the Company’s direct energy consumption was 5,988,755 GJ and indirect energy consumption was 1,652,040 GJ. Our energy consumption outside the organisation covering transport facilities provided to the employees is 227,870 GJ.
This year, our direct energy consumption increased by 14% and indirect energy consumption increased by 18.38% w.r.t. last year, due to increased activity at our project sites and the cyclic nature of the project business. Our major business is Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of projects, where energy consumption is related to the stage of project execution. We will continue to adopt recommended measures to manage energy across campuses and project sites.

Note: The values for 2014-15 and 2015-16 are restated after excluding L&T Infotech operations, which is not part of the scope of the report, from this year onwards. Since this year, as per our new Sustainability Roadmap 2021, we have started reporting energy intensity per turnover instead of intensity/employee.
Renewable Energy
It is our constant endeavour to increase the share of renewable energy in our overall energy mix. We generate energy from renewable sources at 18 campuses. Four of our campuses source wind energy, and one campus started procuring solar energy this year.
L&T’s Renewable Energy Consumption
WIND
Our campuses utilise 33 million units of electricity supplied by wind powered turbines.
SOLAR
Solar energy equivalent to one million units is harnessed on L&T campuses.
BIO-GAS
The food waste processing plants at four campuses contribute to more than 7,465 m3 of biogas, which is used in canteens.
Energy Conservation
The Company places an enormous emphasis on energy conservation. In the last eight years, we saved more than 82 million units (kWh) of energy, avoiding over 68,000 tons of CO2 emission at our establishments.
