Getting Your Buildings to Net Zero: Perspectives from a Manufacturing Company

Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. (SRK) is one of the largest diamond manufacturers in the world. The diamond industry as a whole has been very difficult to decarbonize, and more broadly, the manufacturing sector is extremely challenging to decarbonize. Manufacturers have to make sure they are calculating their emissions at every step of the way from the supply chain, to business practices and the actual manufacturing facilities. As a purpose-driven company that focuses on sustainability, SRK has been a leader in decarbonizing their manufacturing facilities. SRK achieved LEED Platinum for their two manufacturing facilities in Surat, India - SRK House and SRK Empire - and these facilities remain one of the highest performing LEED buildings in the world. Recently, they committed to achieving net zero for these two facilities and are on track to meet this achievement by 2024. This session will go through how to begin and assess your building's performance and how to put in place a successful roadmap to reach net zero, as well as cover the challenges. This session will go through the challenges and roadblocks to decarbonize manufacturing buildings, how you set a plan in place and establish a roadmap to get to net zero, and also offer best practices. SRK has teamed up with leadership collective The Global Network for Zero to further accelerate the company's net zero targets
