Water being a scarce and invaluable natural resource, we are strongly committed to its conservation through the 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) approach. Infosys is a signatory to the CEO Water Mandate, since 2014. We are strengthening our water stewardship practices in our operations and extending our efforts to the community.
Reducing water consumption
To conserve freshwater in existing buildings, we take various measures to reduce demand. Water distribution and treatment strategies have been enhanced with re-engineering and modifications. Real-time monitoring of data is done with smart water metering systems.
Wastewater across our campuses is entirely recycled and used for irrigation, flushing and air-conditioning. We are retrofitting our existing systems to upgrade the quality of treated wastewater in line with new norms.
Implementing rainwater harvesting
Rainwater harvesting is done across our campuses to replenish the groundwater table with the help of natural and artificial lakes/ponds, rooftop harvesting systems and deep well injection systems.
Enhancing community water availability
We have been working with communities around our operations to enhance water availability. We have partnered in spring-water rejuvenation, lake rejuvenation and gravity-fed water supply projects, and provided access to year-long irrigation to farmers. The Infosys Foundation1 continues to work in the area of water stewardship in communities around our operations. We extend supply of drinking water to communities and restore existing water bodies to support life and livelihoods.

Per capita water consumption reduced by 64%
We have significantly reduced our per capita freshwater consumption between 2008 and 2020.
100% wastewater generated at campuses is recycled
The recycled wastewater is used within our campuses for various purposes.
35 lakes/ponds constructed for rainwater harvesting
Infosys campuses have water storage structures with a holding capacity of 330 million litres of rainwater.
370 injection wells installed at campuses for replenishing groundwater levels
The wells have a potential to recharge more than 18.5 million liters of groundwater a day using rainwater.
Maintaining 100% wastewater recycling every year.
