Going from low to zero carbon in 12 years
Since 2008, Infosys has actively pursued its carbon neutral goal by focusing on decarbonization. Our strategy includes reducing our carbon footprint across global operations, transitioning to renewable energy, and offsetting carbon by helping more than 100,000 families in local communities reduce carbon emissions.
Leading by example
In October 2020, Infosys became a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2060 certified carbon neutral company. At the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) in Paris, 2015, 195 countries committed to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. We achieved this milestone, 30 years before the deadline set in the Paris Agreement.
Infosys develops sustainability solutions that are deployed across its operations in 46 countries. Our reference organization (REF-OR-M) Eco Watch Sustainability solution enables data collection and monitoring, auditing, and stakeholder management for adherence to sustainability standards.
Partnering with peers
Infosys joined the Climate Pledge, a forum founded by Amazon and the environment firm, Global Optimism; to become a zero carbon company by 2040. Companies who are signatories continuously measure and report greenhouse gas emissions, implement decarbonization strategies, and neutralize emissions.
Infosys partners with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to influence a global transition to a circular economy. Our Sustainable Business Unit partners with clients to incorporate circular design into products, services, and supply chains by reusing and repurposing their existing technology landscape.
Infosys is a member of the Open Footprint™ Forum that develops open standards for accurate measurement and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and environmental footprint covering water, waste, and land data.
We have been recognized for creating awareness, leveraging technology, and driving measurable outcomes in decarbonization.
Infosys was inducted into Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), including the DJSI World and DJSI Emerging Markets Indices for our environmental, social, and governance policies.
Infosys won the United Nations Global Climate Action Award in the ‘Climate Neutral Now’ category at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) in Santiago, 2019 for innovative solutions to address climate change and sustainable development.
