Ayush Khetan, managing director at Khetan Corru Case, received the award from Telangana minister for IT, industry and commerce KT Rama Rao at the fourth edition of Telangana State Industry Awards 2021, which was held as part of the ManExe event of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
The 'Industry Awards' is a state-wide competition that recognises and rewards exceptional achievements made by Telangana-based businesses, covering both large and small organisations. For the fourth time in a row, the award application process was hosted in Hyderabad by 'Telangana State-Global Linker', a networking platform with over 3.5 lakh SMEs across the world.
The Mumbai-headquartered corrugated box manufacturer was in the limelight for being one of India’s first corrugated facilities to run on 80% solar power. The company claimed that its facility in Hyderabad runs on 80% renewable energy harvested from its captive solar plant, which was inaugurated in October 2020.
According to Khetan, the captive solar rooftop plant, along with other sustainability measures, has helped the company in achieving over 40% carbon neutrality in just over three years.
“We have always been working towards a sustainable production process. Aligned to our customer’s global sustainable goals, we are working towards achieving 100% carbon neutrality in our process in the next 10 years,” Khetan said.
