The ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) in India has slow-brewed from sporadic boardroom discussions to ground and policy-level changes - due to the exponentially increasing risks we are experiencing as our planet warms beyond 1.5-2 degrees.

The pressure to decarbonize and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases is mounting in all sectors, informs a recent communique from AMTOI (Association Of Multimodal Transport Operators of India). 

Hence being environmentally conscious has no longer remained just a matter of choice. It’s become the need of the hour. Hence AMTOI has taken the initiative to form the AMTOI ESG COUNCIL, firstly to create awareness 

about the importance and cost-effectiveness of adopting green measures and secondly, to identify the challenges, adopt solutions and design an effective implementation plan.

The aim is to mainstream ESG - not just across AMTOI members - but across all stakeholders in the supply chain.

An AMTOI ESG Council Logo has been specially designed wherein each colour has a specific significance and the font sizes are intentionally 12 : 14 : 16 - so as to give emphasis on the 3 different aspects of the path towards protection of our Environment.

EMC (Environmental Management Centre) founded by Dr. Prasad Modak – will be our knowledge partner and will assist us in all our endeavours.

For ESG to be truly embedded and practiced in spirit, all stakeholders have to work collaboratively to protect further damage to our environment.
