GAIL launches green campaign
GAIL (India) Limited has started its #EnergizingLowCarbonFuture campaign for digital and social media platforms to expand into greener energy verticals such as renewables and ethanol. GAIL’s primary business, Natural Gas, is eco-friendly and also facilitates environment-friendly initiatives. Now, the company is leveraging its position to go greener, in line with the vision of the Government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to cut carbon emissions and pollution.
As part of the campaign, GAIL will organise discussion forums and opinion polls on social media platforms, besides making several videos and posts on renewables and how natural gas will be a bridge fuel towards a low carbon future.
The campaign follows the company’s ambitious plans to invest substantially to build a portfolio of at least one gigawatts of renewable energy and set up Compressed Biogas (CBG) as well as ethanol plants as it steps up efforts to expand the business beyond natural gas.
As part of a push to embrace cleaner forms of energy GAIL, which has a natural gas pipeline network of over 13,700 km, is further augmenting a pipeline network of over 6,700 km.
The laying of pipeline infrastructure envisages connecting consumption centres to gas sources. While electricity generated from solar energy or through wind power is the cleanest form of energy, converting municipal waste into compressed biogas will supplement the availability of cleaner fuel to automobiles and households.
Through this campaign, GAIL reiterates its commitment to shaping a sustainable future for Atmanirbhar Bharat.
