At present, ITC meets over 40 percent of its electrical energy requirement through renewable sources like wind, solar, and biomass. As a part of its Sustainability 2.0 Vision, ITC is planning to invest further in strengthening its renewable energy portfolio in order to contribute meaningfully to the fight against climate change.

In its endeavor to contribute to a ‘cleaner and greener’ environment, ITC has been expanding its renewable energy footprint over the past two decades. The company has already made significant investments in renewable energy assets (Wind and Solar projects combined). This will improve the Renewable Energy share of the company by an additional 6 percent from current levels.
