The company operates as an incubator, establishing new businesses in transport and logistics, and energy & utility sectors.
Adani Enterprises is leading the decarbonization initiative of industries and mobility through Adani New Industries Limited (ANIL).

According to a report by Ventura Research, India alone will require 11.2 million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030, which translates into an opportunity of over Rs 1.75 trillion.
"Adani Enterprises is targeting 2.5 million tonnes of capacity, which can roughly meet around 22 per cent of India’s green H2 demand.
"However, the company doesn’t want to remain just a commodity player. It will utilize 60 per cent production for captive purposes—to manufacture value added products.
"It will have backward integration as well. Adani Enterprises will use its captive renewable energy in hydrogen manufacturing," the brokerage firm said in a recent note.
