Thiruvananthapuram | As part of its green innovation initiatives, Infosys has created a biogas plant at its campus here to ensure segregation of waste.
The plant will convert food waste into biogas, which in turn will be used in food court kitchen for cooking, an Infosys release said here today.
As a step towards electricity conservation, the company has also replaced tubular fluorescent lamps with LED fixtures having in-built occupancy sensors at its Thiruvananthapuram campus. These sensors work on passive infrared (PIR) technology that detects movements within the coverage area, thereby altering the lighting levels and switching off the power supply when there are no occupants in the room.
These light fixtures has helped Infosys reduce the energy consumption by about 40 per cent, as compared to what the company was able to achieve using conventional lamps.
In 2014, Infosys was the first IT Company in the world to publish its sustainability disclosures in accordance with Global Reporting Initiatives G4 (comprehensive) guidelines. The integrated Sustainability Report showcases the maturity of sustainability management system and reporting practices at Infosys, and addresses the growing interest and heightened expectations of its global stakeholders.
