Orient Cement becomes member of Cement Sustainability Initiative
Orient Cement Limited will become part of the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI), a CEO-led business initiative. The entity operates under the umbrella of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), an effort by global cement majors towards sustainable development.
Orient Cement expects membership of this initiative to give further impetus to its efforts to create a safe and ecologically favourable environment, and is in line with its vision to be the employer of choice and the neighbour of choice in the geographies where it operates.
After the announcement, Deepak Khetrapal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Orient Cement said, "We are delighted to be a part of the global mission to make our industry shoulder the responsibility for global sustainability. We thank the WBCSD and the CSI for partnering with us in our journey. We expect to contribute to and benefit from our participation in the various working groups of this initiative, and look forward to a very engaging and fulfilling journey ahead. We accept this membership with a deep sense of responsibility and intend to play our role to the utmost extent in this noble mission."
