BANGALORE: Infosys has become the first IT company in the world to publish its sustainability report based on the latest Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 comprehensive framework. GRI is the most widely respected sustainability reporting framework, worldwide.
“Infosys was amongst the first Indian companies to publish a Sustainability Report based on GRI guidelines in 2008. As a values-driven company, Infosys consistently follows the highest levels of disclosure, besides ensuring compliance with the laws of the land, wherever it operates. Our sustainability report demonstrates the maturity of Infosys’ reporting practices and addresses the growing interest and heightened expectations of our global stakeholders.”, Infosys said in the statement.
The Company’s integrated reporting framework provides synergy between its economic, social and environmental strategies, action plans and desired outcomes. This has significantly helped Infosys achieve its sustainability goals. Since the first reporting year, Infosys has reduced its per capita electricity and fresh water consumption by about 44% and 35% respectively as of FY 2014.
The Company also contributed significantly to the well being of local communities through various projects undertaken by the Infosys Foundation. Infosys continues to engage with over 372 engineering colleges through Campus Connect, its flagship industry-academia partnership program. The Company’s sustainability efforts have been recognized at various national and international forums. Infosys recently won a Gold at the prestigious Ashden Awards in London, considered the Green Oscars, for its achievements in building energy efficiency.
Reporting using G4 guidelines demonstrates Infosys’ commitment to advocate the adoption of integrated reporting practices globally. The report is externally assured by DNV GL, represented by DNV Assurance India Private Limited and has received the ‘Materiality Matters’ check from GRI.
