Impact of climate change
Have you noticed the erratic irregularities in climate, such as extreme temperatures, rainfall, and unprecedented cold weather? According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, these are all ill effects of climate change. These environmental disasters are among the most significant threats to human survival, and children, in particular, are at the receiving end of it.
According to a report by Save the Children, if the earth gets warmer at the current rate, children born in 2020 and after will witness more heatwaves, floods, droughts and wildfires than earlier generations.
How can we all fight climate change?
Climate change is happening as we speak. You can be a part of the solution by making small changes that can create a huge impact and a huge difference if done every day. It's time to act collectively and work towards saving our planet.
LET US ACT RIGHT NOW!
Saving our future
What are we doing as a corporate to build a better planet?
We recognise the importance of conserving planet’s natural resources. We are committed to sustainable utilisation of major natural resources, such as land, water, air, and wild flora and fauna. Together, these resources form an ecosystem that is vital to the world.
Our climate change strategy reallocates resources from high-carbon activities to low-carbon ones, such as energy efficiency, emission reduction and renewable energy. Between 2010 and 2020, we exceeded our target and reduced Green House Gas emissions in our Beverages operations (Scope 1 and 2) by 26%.
We believe the need of the hour is not just to keep a check on the increase in demand but to also rationalise existing consumption and incorporate viable and economically feasible renewable sources in the energy mix. At Tata Consumer, we have put into practice several measures aimed at encouraging green energy sources, enhancing the efficiency of existing machinery and processes, reducing the amount of energy we use, and certification to ISO 50001 as a framework for managing energy.
Tata Consumer is committed to creating a climate-resilient supply chain. Climate change, as a result of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions from human activity, is one of the biggest threats to sustainable agriculture. This has resulted in adverse effects, such as unpredictable rainfall patterns, soil erosion, increased pests, and disease incidences. We have been collaborating with various partners to help tea farmers and producers increase their resilience to the effects of climate change. Farmers are trained on a range of sustainable agricultural practices, based on their specific situation and location.
