What is Sustainability?

Sustainability, at its core, is a call to action—a recognition that our current trajectory demands a recalibration of our approach to living, producing, and consuming. It encompasses not just environmental concerns, but also social and economic dimensions, recognizing the intricate web of relationships that comprise our lives on Earth.

Sustainability is a commitment to fostering a balance where the needs of the present are met without compromising the resources for future generations.

82°E’s Sustainability Initiatives

Nourish - Replenish - Restore

We have joined forces with India's leading plastic credits platform, The Disposal Company, to shape a greener, more sustainable tomorrow.

Here are some of our initiatives below: 

Plastic Waste Management

We have achieved the reclamation and recycling of 2520 kilograms of plastic from India's landfills (March 2024)

This effort underscores 82°E's dedication to addressing the issue of plastic waste. Through meticulous monthly audits, we not only neutralize our plastic footprint but also set an industry benchmark for responsible consumption and environmental stewardship.

Carbon Offset

Through a transformative thermal energy production project, we have achieved a substantial reduction of 100 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually (May 2023)

Reforestation Initiative

To foster carbon capture and environmental restoration, we have planted approximately 11,111 trees (May 2023)

Renewable Energy Initiative

We have invested in a bundled rice husk-based co-generation project in Patiala, India.

Our investment helps to mitigate climate change as this project uses a renewable resource and avoids the release of CO2 from fossil fuel combustion. Additionally, it contributes to improved access to energy and sustainable development.

The co-benefits of this project include improved air quality and reduced waste through the utilization of byproducts that would otherwise be discarded or burned.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

We support the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:


Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy.


Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all.
