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 disclosure 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

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."
