Infosys will make its Mysore campus a Smart City through effective planning to ensure efficient resource governance and utilization. The campus will be the first to achieve zero waste to landfill sustainability. The company aims to achieve its target of making the campus a Smart City by April 2015.
Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka said: “Our model ecosystem at Mysore will serve as a replicable example of smart city innovations that will harness all the advantages of digitization.”
The company has invested in a Command Center at its headquarters in Bangalore from where it monitors, manages and optimizes resource usage across its development centers based in India. This Command Center analyzes data of energy consumption, building operations, and uses advanced algorithms for energy saving, predictive maintenance and more, to ensure operational excellence.
Infosys has a goal to reduce its water consumption on campuses by 50 percet and to recycle and reuse all water on its campuses. The company is also working towards a zero waste to landfill approach.
