What began in 2014 as environmental responsibility has now turned into a necessity to save the world. Call it the Greta Thunberg effect, or whatever you may, the race for net-zero has truly begun. As India positions itself at the centre of the global awakening towards a sustainable future, Sumant Sinha, chairman and CEO of ReNew Power can very well be described as the right man in the right place at the right time. At the recently held COP26 congregation in Glasgow, India has committed to meeting 50% of its energy requirements from renewable energy sources by 2030, and Sinha is could become the renewable energy man of India, as ReNew Power boasts of installing 1.5 GW renewable energy capacity in FY22. This is an unparalleled feat for any private company in the country.
