Our pledge of growing 7 million trees will be instrumental in fulfilling our ESG goals of combatting
climate change and achieving net zero carbon emissions. It is a great platform to safeguard and
restore the ecosystem and to further our commitment towards building a sustainable future.”
Vedanta’s Biodiversity policy and management standards ensure that they conserve and enhance
the biodiversity while working to protect the natural ecosystem in their areas of operations. For
this, the company has collaborated with various partners and indigenous people to develop
integrated land use, habitat conservation, and restoration strategies and to implement the
biodiversity mitigation hierarchy.
Mr. Sunil Duggal, Group CEO, Vedanta Limited shares, “Protecting our ecosystem is at the core
of Vedanta’s business ethos. The 1t.org pledge marks a significant step towards our vision of
transforming the planet. Through reforestation, agroforestry, and mangrove restoration, we will
be furthering our environmental conservation efforts. With our renewed focus on ESG, Vedanta
has significantly moved up in the S&P Global Sustainability Rankings (erstwhile DJSI) with a strong
14-point improvement in its sustainability score this year.”
Sustainability has been part of Vedanta’s core ethos and decision making with transformation for
a sustainable future at the center of its business activities. This initiative is in line with the
company philosophy as it is an emphasis on development for preserving and reestablishing the
vital ecosystem services and biodiversity on which communities and economies depend on.
Additionally, it would enable the firm in achieving its ESG goals and climate change mission.
World Economic Forum’s 1 Trillion Tree (1t.org) movement aims to conserve, restore and grow
one trillion trees worldwide. It seeks to repopulate the world’s trees and combat climate
change as a nature-based solution. The campaign is part of the WEF’s efforts to accelerate
nature-based solutions and was set up to support the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration
2021-2030. This Corporate Alliance welcomes companies that are ready to play a leadership role
