Infosys Presented with 2013 Environmental Tracking Carbon Ranking Leader Award 
Recognition for longstanding commitment to sustainability and transparency 
Bangalore, 29 April 2013: Infosys, a global leader in consulting and 
technology, has been named a 2013 Environmental Tracking (ET) Carbon Ranking 
Leader for its greenhouse gas emissions and disclosu re practices. 
As part of the selection process, the Environmental Investment Organization, a
climate change and finance think tank, assessed the carbon ranking of the 300
largest companies across the five BRICS countries, ranking Infosys in the top
five companies. 
Key carbon reduction projects at Infosys include: 
* The first use of radiant cooling air conditioning in a commercial building;
  utilising a new technique that involves circulating water in embedded pipes 
  to chill rooms and reduce energy use
* Establishment of a 250 Kw solar plant on a campus in Jaipur and a 125 kW 
  solar photo voltaic plant in Trivandrum
* Creation of an innovative way to notify employees leaving a building that 
  they have left their computer on, and a system for them to remotely switch it 
  off using their phone
* Rainwater harvesting in Mysore that reduced its fresh water consumption by 
  18 per cent in its first year, saving nearly 300 million litres of fresh 
  water 
Quotes: 
S. Gopalakrishnan, Founder and Executive Co-Chair, Infosys: 
"Sustainability has been one of the core values at Infosys for several years. 
We continuously strive to bring creative solutions to reduce our carbon 
emissions. As well as the environmental and cost benefits, a focus on 
environmental innovation has created a new business opportunity for us. We are 
now looking for ways to bring this expertise to the benefit of our clients, 
providing sustainability services to clients across the world." 
Sam Gill, CEO at the Environmental Investment Organisation: 
"I am delighted to be able to present the 2013 ET Carbon Ranking Leader Award 
to Infosys on behalf of the Environmental Investment Organisation. Whilst 
effective greenhouse gas emissions reporting is certainly not an easy task 
for any company it is excellent to see certain companies demonstrating that it 
can be done and to an ever increasingly higher standard. In light of 62% of 
companies in the ET Global 800 reporting incomplete data or no data at all, 
any company ranking within the top ten in their respective region should be 
viewed as a pioneering leader, constantly raising the bar for others around 
them. We actively encourage companies in their region to follow suit by 
publicly disclosing complete Greenhouse Gas emissions data across Scopes 
1, 2 & 3."
