 In a bid to address escalating climate change challenges and promote sustainable infrastructure development, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited (DCBL), a subsidiary of Dalmia Bharat Ltd (DBL), recently convened its Annual Technocrats Meet in Ranchi. With the region poised for rapid infrastructure expansion, the session brought together engineers and architects to deliberate on sustainable options in construction.


India's buildings and construction sector is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for approximately one-sixth of the country's total. Against this backdrop, discussions at the meet focused on transitioning from conventional construction methods to embracing innovative approaches to mitigate environmental impact. Key among these strategies is the adoption of High-grade concrete, renowned for its durability and ability to reduce maintenance requirements, thus promoting sustainability in large-scale infrastructure projects.


The event showcased how optimizing particle size distribution and enhancing bonding in concrete can lead to higher long-term strength, thereby reducing cement usage and carbon emissions. These innovative solutions not only combat climate change but also foster greener and more resilient environments.


Led by Dalmia Cement's technical team, the meet saw participation from over 100 esteemed architects and engineers from Ranchi, Ramgarh, Lohardaga, and Gumla. A company spokesperson emphasized Dalmia Cement's commitment to leading the 'Grey to Green' transition in the construction sector and advocated for the widespread adoption of sustainable building components.


Highlighting the significance of the cement industry in combatting climate change, the spokesperson reiterated Dalmia Cement's target to reduce carbon emission intensity by 33-35% by 2030. Embracing sustainable construction practices, they emphasized, is crucial for creating healthier and sustainable communities for future generations.



Dalmia Cement has been at the forefront of sustainability, implementing green initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint. With CO2 emissions at 459 kg per ton (Q3FY24), it boasts one of the lowest carbon footprints globally in the cement sector. Committed to becoming carbon negative by 2040, Dalmia Cement continues to pave the way for a more sustainable future in the construction industry.
