Apollo Hospitals, a leading name in global healthcare, has embarked on a revolutionary climate action plan through a collaboration with Smart Joules. This alliance is set to bring down carbon emissions by a staggering 2,90,000 tons across 18 Apollo Hospitals in India.
The move aligns with India’s dedication to achieving net-zero emissions by 2070, an ambitious goal that necessitates a colossal shift in how energy is consumed and conserved.
JoulePAYS, developed by Smart Joules, is an inventive solution enabling existing buildings to be retrofitted for energy efficiency without any initial investment. It’s a pay-as-you-save model, which means clients can achieve significant energy savings, with a portion of the savings shared with Smart Joules.
Apollo Hospitals has shown remarkable progress in integrating the JoulePAYS solution into its infrastructure. Within four months, it has taken 235 energy conservation measures which are projected to save over 235 million kWh and INR 2 billion by 2030.
Apollo Hospitals’ President, Dr. K Hariprasad, highlighted the dual benefit of the initiative – optimizing operational efficiency while significantly cutting down on energy consumption and carbon emissions.
Apollo Hospitals has set a precedent for the healthcare sector, demonstrating how sustainability and quality healthcare can coexist. This collaboration with Smart Joules is an inspiring example of the change that is possible when innovative solutions are applied to real-world challenges.
By leveraging energy-efficient technologies, hospitals can play a pivotal role in the global effort to mitigate climate change.
This partnership marks a significant milestone in India’s journey towards a greener and more sustainable future.
