Our Approach: MSMEs as Catalysts for Green Transition
Our approach is rooted in PM Modi's Zero Defect-Zero Effect strategy, targeting the greening of the MSME sector – a significant contributor to India's GDP.
UNICEF's ‘Children’s Climate Risk Index’ places an urgency on our mission, ranking India as the 26th riskiest country out of 163. We aim to safeguard our children's future while sustaining our growth engines.
We champion bold change-makers who catalyze a bottom-up, MSME-focused transition to a sustainable India. Our strategy involves collaboration with key ecosystem players such as government stakeholders, academicians, private industry, not-for-profits, and investors.
Together, we will address India's green transition challenges by reducing Scope-3 emissions from 6 Cr+ Indian MSMEs, catalyzing Green-tech innovation by 'Bharat-first' entrepreneurs, and creating a unified platform for green advocacy.

IMPACT AND INSIGHTS
Explore our case studies to understand the real-world impact of our efforts and the innovative solutions that are driving us closer to a NetZero India.
Case Study 1
AgroFresh Corp, an agricultural powerhouse in India, wanted to overhaul their traditional farming practices and transition to more sustainable and carbon-neutral methods. They partnered with NetZero India by 2050 to accomplish this goal.
Our team conducted a thorough analysis of their operations, identifying areas where emissions could be reduced, energy could be saved, and sustainable practices could be implemented. Following our recommendations, AgroFresh Corp adopted precision farming technology and introduced renewable energy sources to power their operations. The result was a 60% reduction in their carbon footprint within the first year and a plan to achieve complete carbon neutrality by 2040.
Case Study 2
IndusSteel Ltd, a leading steel manufacturer in India, was looking to decrease its significant carbon footprint. They chose NetZero India by 2050 as their partner in this challenging endeavor.
We helped IndusSteel Ltd implement a number of key strategies, including energy-efficient machinery, waste heat recovery systems, and clean energy sources. Within two years, IndusSteel Ltd had reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by an impressive 45%, putting it well on track to achieve its target of net-zero emissions by 2045
Case Study 3
TechRise Pvt Ltd, a top tech company in Bangalore, was committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2035. However, they faced challenges in identifying and implementing effective solutions. They reached out to NetZero India by 2050 for guidance.
Our team developed a comprehensive strategy for TechRise Pvt Ltd, including optimizing energy use in their data centers, transitioning to renewable energy, and implementing a robust recycling program.By following our roadmap, TechRise Pvt Ltd was able to cut their emissions by 50% within three years and is currently on track to becoming a completely carbon-neutral company ahead of their set deadline.
