ReNew Power (ReNew Energy Global PLC), India’s leading renewable energy IPPs, has been recognized for its effective disclosures of environmental impact for ReNew’s business and for ensuring good environmental management by the global environmental non-profit CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project). ReNew has received a ‘B’ rating for its actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon economy, based on data reported by ReNew through CDP’s 2022 climate change questionnaire.

Globally, more than 15,000 companies have disclosed on CDP and ReNew Power is in an elite group of companies that have debuted with a strong upper-grade ‘B’ rating which is higher than Asia’s regional average of ‘C’.
Chief Sustainability Officer, Vaishali Nigam Sinha said, “ReNew Power’s CDP debut reflects our dedication to a fossil-free future while holding ourselves accountable to our stakeholders. This is one among the many efforts by ReNew to monitor and disclose its performance against the environmental, social, governance, and economic parameters and raise the bar on ensuring sustainable practices across the business. Our excellent performance, as recognized by CDP, across emissions disclosure and verification, risk management processes, and governance lays the foundation for us to be a global benchmark in corporate sustainability in the coming years.”
