“During fiscal 2017, 118.90 million units of electricity were from renewable sources, which are about 44.6 per cent of overall electricity requirements of their campuses in India,” Infosys said in its latest sustainability report.
The Bengaluru-based firm has also been working on reducing its per capita electricity consumption.
It said the per capita electricity consumption has been reduced by 2.88 per cent in 2016-17.
Infosys now has 17 LEED platinum-rated buildings, two LEED EB platinum-rated campuses and four buildings with GRIHA 5-star rating, totalling 11.1 million sq ft.
