Mahindra Logistics and LOGOS pave way for green logistics; transform India’s largest warehousing facility towards Net-Zero

Mahindra Logistics Limited (MLL) – country’s largest integrated logistics solutions providers – along with LOGOS, a leading Asia Pacific logistics specialist, and Venture partner Ivanhoe Cambridge, transforms India’s largest warehousing facility, in a single park, towards net-zero. With this transformation in Luhari, MLL’s total renewable powered warehouses are now over 4MN sq. ft. in the country.

The facility now, has 500 KW installed rooftop solar panel, making it the largest net metering project by any logistics company in Haryana, equivalent of 3500 trees, and providing for more than two-third of Mahindra Logistics’ electricity requirement (saving circa 12,000 tonnes of CO2 over its lifetime). This saving is equivalent to the amount of CO2 absorbed by a 240-acre forest and is also equipped for solar charging of cargo and personal mobility vehicles.

“Our commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2040 is an endeavour to lead the logistics industry by example. Offering large format, multi-client, net zero, state-of-the-art warehousing infrastructure is an effort towards green logistics. At Mahindra Logistics, we continue to provide integrated, customised solutions through a sustainable ecosystem and thank our partners – LOGOS for supporting us in our journey towards carbon neutrality”.
