Apraava Energy Managing Direct Rajiv Mishra welcomed the CLP’s selling of stake to CDPQ, saying that together with them, the company will support India’s goal to provide clean and reliable energy and develop a greener economy.

“We will continue to focus on building a sustainable power company that will invest only in low-carbon growth areas, including renewable generation, transmission, distribution, as well as other customer-focused energy businesses. As we move forward, all of our decisions and efforts will epitomise energy in action, thereby creating value for all our stakeholders,” Mishra said.
