´ExxonMobil´s leadership in innovation is accentuated by its commitment to sustainability. This demands an efficient use of resources - human, environmental and operational. While energy efficiency remains one of the most visible and discussed sustainable business practices, sustainability as related to industrial lubricants, presents an interesting dichotomy. Being based on crude oil as a raw material for both mineral-based and synthetic-based lubricants, lubricants appear to be the opposite of sustainability,´ said Paul Grives, Global Services & Grease Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company. Sustainability through enhanced energy efficiency is a key business imperative across the world today. From an operations and cost efficiency perspective, reducing energy consumption can have a positive impact on a company´s bottom line. According to ExxonMobil´s Energy Outlook Report 2040, energy demand in 2040 is expected to double from 2010 levels, and the rate of increase is anticipated to be even higher in countries like India that have a rapidly expanding industrial business landscape.
According to Shankar Karnik, Mobil SHC Brand Manager & Energy Advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants, ´There is a need for companies across industries to perceive energy efficiency through a strategic lens and align it to their core business objectives. In almost every sector, we´re now seeing companies achieve success by creating or deploying new technologies that use energy more efficiently, and using synthetic and energy-efficient lubricants can help achieve those results. In India, we are already working with various stakeholders to meet and exceed industry requirements for energy efficiency through our suite of next-generation technology lubricants.´
