Oct 31: Tata Consultancy Services has been granted leadership level score among the 2,418 companies that reported to CDP’s (Carbon Disclosure Project) Climate Change programme in 2017.
The high score recognises TCS’s leadership in carbon management as part of its long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship, and continual efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and shrink the organisation’s environmental footprint by driving greater efficiency in resource consumption and adopting renewable sources of energy.
Further, the company has been an advocate of green IT, promoting energy-efficient design of data centres, procurement of energy-efficient assets, operational energy management and eco-friendly disposal of end-of-life IT equipment.
According to TCS, it has also brought to bear its technological prowess and intellectual property to drive greater energy efficiency for itself and its customers. TCS’s cloud-based platform for remote energy-management-as-a-service is deployed across 150 of its facilities in India, housing 280,000 employees. It uses its own IoT platform, machine learning and predictive analytics to monitor energy consumption on a real-time basis, detect anomalies and identify ways to reduce consumption.
Ajoy Mukherjee, EVP and head, global human resources said, “TCS is committed to the path of low carbon growth, by decoupling business growth from its carbon footprint. Our adoption of green buildings, green IT, green procurement and the use of digital technologies to optimise energy consumption presents a holistic, technology-led roadmap to all companies seeking to reduce their carbon footprint.”
