Some of the key initiatives that were undertaken at its Bengaluru campus are as follows:

  • Renewable Energy: In order to reduce carbon footprint, Infosys has invested in various energy efficiency measures including lighting, UPS, building management systems, facade retrofit projects. The company has also Installed 15.2 MW solar capacity (rooftop + ground-mount) across India since 2009. Bengaluru contributes 1.5 MW of installed capacity.

  • Food waste Management: To address waste management in an integrated manner, the company has installed biogas plants with an overall capacity of 9.25 TPD across various campuses. Infosys has set up a fully automated biogas plant at its Bengaluru campus, with a capacity to treat two tonnes of food waste per day. The plant also allows online monitoring and reduces manual operations and errors. Furthermore, the company also has 3.1 TPD installed capacity of composting plants in different campuses including Bengaluru.

  • Sludge Treatment: In its approach to address sewage sludge from waste water treatment plants, Infosys has collaborated with Leibniz University, Germany, and has engineered a fully automated solar-heat assisted greenhouse dryer at Bengaluru and Mysuru. These facilities now has a cumulative treating capacity of 1.2 million kg of sludge annually. The wet sludge is dried and sanitized in the greenhouse, resulting in an annual fertilizer production of over 300 tonnes.

  • Precast Buildings: Infosys has undertaken a pioneering project to showcase precast technology in India and is executing a 4.95 lakh sq. ft. facility in Bengaluru using this technology
