Climate change needs global action and Infosys recognizes its role to be part of the solution. We aim to drive climate action within our operations and engage with stakeholders for the global agenda. Our unwavering focus on responsiveness to the needs of the environment ecology will continue to be in three main areas: Decreasing carbon emissions through energy efficiency and conservation while moving to renewable energy, minimizing waste going to landfills, and conserving freshwater along with water recycling.
The main greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our support activities include CO2, SOx, NOx and other ozone-depleting substances. Emission levels from diesel generators and diesel-operated fire fighting pumps are monitored on a monthly basis.
We achieved carbon neutralilty for FY20 across all emissions with our energy efficiency measures, green buildings and use of renewable energy. We also implemented carbon offset projects in the community.
Our goal is to minimize waste going to landfills. Waste generated at Infosys campuses is segregated and processed using latest technologies. We have pledged to eliminate single-use plastic and reduce plastic waste generation overall.
Forging strong partnerships is a strategic imperative to build a sustainable future for us and for the world. Our partners help us achieve our goals and venture into new areas of research and experimentation.Read more
