“What makes cement an exciting business is the headroom for growth in India, which exceeds that of every other country well beyond 2050,” said Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group.

“Cement is a game of economics dependent on energy costs, logistics and distribution costs, and the ability to leverage a digital platform to transform production as well as gain significant supply chain efficiencies. Each of these capabilities is a core business for us and therefore provides our cement business with a set of unmatched adjacencies. It is these adjacencies that eventually drive competitive economics. In addition, our position as one of the largest renewable energy companies in the world will help us manufacture premium quality green cement well in line with the principles of a circular economy,” he said.
