Sustainability Data Analytics Platform for Implementing Sustainability 2.0

In recent years it has been witnessed that several industries are preparing to embrace sustainability — the management of greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, waste management, green product development, and water conservation — as an integral factor for their manufacturing and is no longer treated as an expense but as a crucial value differentiator. The manufacturing industry is now introducing sustainability 2.0 as an integral part of its business model and core strategy. Launching sustainability 2.0 is to improve long-term sustainable goals and ESG (environmental, societal governance) challenges. The need to shift to more sustainable business operations is highly critical.

ITC Infotech is on a journey towards Sustainability 2.0, an agenda that reinvents sustainability under the compelling challenges of climate change and social inequity. This new agenda is driven by a remarkable combination of thought and action on ITC Infotech’s part with meaningful public-private-people partnerships. The Sustainability Report 2.0 is available here.
