MT CARBON UNDER MANAGEMENT
To empower retailers to avoid 1 gigaton of carbon by 2030.
To decelerate climate change.
The Earth is our protagonist — protecting it is at the center of everything we do.
Climate change affects us all, and by working collaboratively we know we can make a difference within retail and beyond.
We share what we’re working on, are open about challenges and are building an ecosystem that creates change.
‘Vaayu’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘Air’ and its origin extends to other derivations — atmosphere, weather, breeze, gas, wind and the Sanskrit word ‘Jalvaayu’, meaning climate. Our name is reflective of our work to protect the natural environment surrounding the Earth and those that exist within it.
