MUMBAI: Vedanta Ltd., which is planning a restructuring exercise to unlock value and simplify its corporate structure, has pledged $5 billion over the next 10 years to accelerate its transition to net zero operations.
It plans to be the ESG (environmental, social and governance) leader in the natural resources sector and has committed to reduce its carbon emissions to zero by 2050 or sooner.
As part of the process, the company has repurposed its mission statement to Vedanta – ‘Transforming for Good’, to make a meaningful difference to the society at large.

The new mission statement is significant as it focuses on Vedanta adopting best practices and policies across the ESG space for the greater good, the company said.
