Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has announced its plan to reduce its absolute greenhouse gas emissions across ‘Scope 1’ and ‘Scope 2’ by 70 per cent by 2025, and to achieve net zero emission by 2030.

In its recently published Integrated Annual Report 2020-21, the company has set forth this new carbon reduction goal after having achieved the previous target of reducing its specific carbon footprint by half by 2020, ahead of schedule.

In FY 2021, the specific carbon footprint of TCS across Scope 1 and Scope 2 was lower by 61.6 per cent compared to baseline year FY 2008.

“At the core of TCS’ strategy to reduce its carbon footprint is improved energy efficiency through the addition of more green buildings to the company’s real estate portfolio, reduction of IT system power usage, and the use of TCS Clever Energy, which leverages IoT, machine learning and AI to optimize energy consumption across campuses,” said a company statement.
