Sustainability initiatives are more than technology and well-intentioned ideals. The essential technologies exist, yet organizations struggle to achieve their full potential. Vision and strategy must progress to actionable plans and outcomes. We help clients progress sustainability initiatives through practices like:
Companies have demonstrated their commitment to a more sustainable future through carbon neutrality. However, what is missing is an actionable framework to reach that future. Practical Sustainability is Infosys’ framework to tackle the sustainability challenge, with its foundation in five essential elements:
Our sustainability offerings can help organizations at the start of their sustainability journey and construct a strategy and identify quick wins or help those with mature programs evolve sustainability efforts to regeneration. We help you navigate your next.
|ESG Data and Analytics||
|Sustainability Design Advisory||
Begin with the Sustainability Design Advisory to create a roadmap of important initiatives. The roadmap includes a measurement framework with industry relevant KPIs defined, processes and workflows, a central sustainability data lake, dashboards, as well as email notifications and campaign setup.
Every sustainability program starts and ends with ESG Data and Analytics – identify the key metrics, gather valid data, organize it and understand the story it conveys. Tools like Infosys EcoWatch can provide comprehensive data gathering and harmonization platforms with AI-powered analytics and custom rules to provide robust, industry and client-specific reporting and real-time dashboards. Organizations cannot act effectively without a clear understanding and a measurement of every action.
Power generation and use are the primary drivers of global carbon and GHG emissions. At Infosys, we apply our IT, OT, and ET (engineering tech) expertise and domain knowledge to help clients significantly reduce their fundamental power usage through multiple decarbonization offerings. The power that is needed can be transitioned to renewables, with smart systems to optimize the transition and ongoing management. Businesses must also identify mitigation strategies and potential revenue streams for waste and turning costs into benefits for the greatest ROI.
The built environment accounts for 40% of global GHG emissions. To combat that, Infosys Smart Spaces delivers energy-efficient facilities for new and existing construction. Furthermore, we manage embedded and operational emissions, resource usage and waste from buildings. In addition, for the building tenants, we consider occupancy and work patterns to improve efficiencies while reducing resource usage and support costs. Lastly, we have detailed Return-to-Work and employee health and safety components in our smart spaces offerings.
Infosys enables Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Circularity along three fronts: 1. Comprehensive waste management: Design-out waste causing steps, use waste as an input or revenue stream, zero-to-landfill methods, eliminate single-use materials, and waste treatment 2. Digital Twin: Enables virtual, rapid development and testing, predictive maintenance 3. Design of products/services for circularity - end-of-use renewal, recycling and remanufacturing.
The Infosys ESG Advisory for Finance helps with pro-sustainability investing decisions. We improve access, understanding, and management of large non-financial data sets. Key components include de-risking strategies, governance frameworks, data visualization and alignment to the task force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations.
