Tata Consulting Services aimed to leverage the 25x25 Vision, renewable energy, and digital technologies to reduce its carbon emissions by 70% by 2025 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2030. However, TCS achieved the target before the stated time.

Fremont, CA: Tata Consultancy Services or TCS has reached net-zero emissions in its Asia Pacific locations. According to a senior executive of the company, TCS has achieved net-zero emission before its set target, 2030. The company planned last year to reduce its overall greenhouse gas emission by 2025 and reach net zero emissions by 2030. According to the president of TCS APAC, the plan was to take two markets and two delivery centres out of India and convert those into carbon-neutral by 2025. But all of TCS APAC reached carbon-neutral in FY22 ahead of their stated target. The initial markets were Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines. However, in FY22, TCS has achieved its goal by reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions to zero at 4 distribution centres and 26 office locations across 12 countries. The president further said that after computing the carbon footprint, they tried to acquire energy from renewable resources by ensuring that all their utilities are carbon neutral and a significant amount of recycling. After going through the experiment they found an opportunity that their customers could also go through the same procedure.

Currently, TCS is working with the UN Global Compact to examine the tools of carbon footprint management for its customers throughout Europe and APAC. TCS is one of India's largest IT service providers based on revenue and is also working on a three-pronged strategy to grow its business. The strategy incorporates solutions to track customers’ carbon footprints, improvement in patterns for individual resource consumption, and result-based digital solutions that can aid in reducing carbon emissions.
