Ambuja Cement, in 1992, was the first cement company in the country to kick-start transportation of bulk cement by coastal shipping as the best mode of sustainable transport among all other modes of transport and the most cost-effective way. 

Also, it was among the first to introduce Shore Power Supply to all ships at the captive jetties.

Ambuja Cement with a fleet of about 10 ships, was the first to use bio-fuels from soya extract in two of its ships Ambuja Mukund and Ambuja Vaibhav as part of an exercise flagged off by DG Shipping to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
