HMIL’s robust Energy Management System involves conserving energy and resources throughout its operations, incorporating low-carbon practices and reducing emission across the value chain.

It has further adopted large-scale innovative practices in energy management like 100 per cent transition from conventional to LED lighting in the plant as early as 2017, and at all its offices and dealerships, thermo-ceramic coating on furnaces and ovens to reduce fuel consumption, steam elimination though waste heat recovery in paint shops, relocation of boilers to reduce transmission loss, installation of turbo chillers in paint shops, to name a few.

HMIL proactively monitors both direct emissions (Scope 1) and indirect emissions (Scope 2), constantly exploring every possibility to reduce carbon emissions in its manufacturing process, including the use of renewable energy sources and conversion from propane to Liquified Natural Gas (LNG).It has also installed a 10 MW rooftop solar plant at its manufacturing facility at Chennai.Since October 2022, it has been strategically purchasing green power from Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) to increase its renewable energy portfolio to 64 per cent.
