The Silicon Review
The recent years have witnessed a critical climate change in our planet owing to the rise in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. The CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has now reached 400 ppm from the safe level of 350 ppm. All these shifts and variations in the weather conditions and rainfall patterns are directly or indirectly attributed to human activities and can have radical and unpredictable environmental and economic consequences. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to focus on outlining strategies for reducing carbon emissions globally and foster an economically and socially sustainable carbon-constrained economy. In the light of the above mentioned, we are thrilled to present you EKI Energy Services Limited, a company that works with the aim to contribute to sustainable development as a pathway to build a better future for all.
Founded by Manish Dabkara on 10 Aug 2008, EKI Energy Services Limited is India’s first public limited company and an ISO 9001:2015 certified organization working in the field of energy, carbon and quality management, with the brand name of EnKing International. It is one of the leading firms in India, having more than 1000 national and international clients with 5 nationwide offices, headquartered at Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India. With the vision to “Make Planet Earth a Green Global Society”, EnKing International delivers services into the categories of R&D, training, consulting and auditing.

Getting off to a flying start
EnKing International’s first project related to carbon credit was awarded by Pratibha Syntex limited for a natural gas-based power plant in Verified Carbon Standard. It was executed successfully, and since then, it has worked on more than 500 projects. EnKing International helps businesses to meet Carbon Emission Reduction target under Paris Agreement by determining Carbon Footprint and become Carbon Neutral or trade the Carbon Credits. The company also helps organiztaions to implement ISO standards like ISO 9001, 14001, 50001, 18001, etc. and also help in ZED rating and lean manufacturing.
Like every organization on the path to success, EnKing International too had its fair share of challenges when it started out. But the company was focused on making its mark in the market. Eventually, it opened up many verticals into food/tiffin services, solar water heater sales, carbon credit services, energy audit services, but it couldn’t direct its concentration on anything. So, it later moved on to just carbon credit services and ISO certification services. Now, EnKing International has over 1000 clients in over 40 countries along with a 90% market share of Indian projects. It’s major clients include Mahindra Group, Adani Group, Soft Bank, Fortum, ACME, Mytrah Energy, Greenko, Hero Future Energies, National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC), National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), United Nations (UN), World Bank, The Kenya Government, etc.
Another major challenge that the company had to go through was cash flow management and team retention. EnKing International has witnessed a huge cash crunch a few times. It had to take high loan amount to make up for the financial differences, but now it has good backup reserves. In the past, much left/layoff happened. Luckily, the company has been stable for the last three years and has been growing at a much faster pace. It aims at building a team of 100+ employees with a turnover of more than 100 Crores in the coming three years and make the company a desired workplace for them. This sums up the journey of a high debt company to a zero debt and surplus reserve company.
EnKing International: A class apart
EnKing International is a customer-centric company. It believes that earning the trust and respect of customers all around the world can be achieved by making deliveries on time and within the committed fee. This helps to build repeat business and referrals.

Once we achieved value for them through our service, we got their respect and trust. The increase in the number of orders, increased business and the hold in the market share all proves this”, the company said. The company also says that it’s a leader as it is making the market.
