Infosys has topped CRISIL’s ESG scores in their latest report ‘CRISIL Sustainability Yearbook, 2022’ for the second consecutive year. The yearbook positioned Infosys in the Leadership category with an overall score of 76 on 100 (the score was assigned on a scale of 1-100, with 100 denoting best-in-class ESG performance). Infosys has scored 81 on environmental parameters and 62 and 80 on social and governance parameters, respectively.

The study by CRISIL evaluated 586 companies across 53 sectors in India based on information for three years (up to and including fiscal 2021) of publicly available ESG information considering both quantitative and qualitative disclosures of companies. The parameters on which the companies were evaluated were: 

  1. Environmental - GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions, energy use, waste and pollution, water use, and land use 
  2. Social - Workforce and diversity, occupation/product safety, customer and vendor engagement, ease of access and reach, and communities and society
  3. Governance - Board performance and independence, ownership concentration, management track record, shareholder relations, and disclosure practices/statements

“We are extremely proud to top CRISIL's ESG scores and be placed in the 'Leadership category' in CRISIL’s Sustainability Yearbook 2022. We believe the recognition serves to strengthen our unwavering focus on exemplary responsiveness and governance when it comes to serving shared ecological and societal needs. As ESG becomes more mainstream, we will continue to work with various industry bodies, regulators, and stakeholders to develop a values-driven approach to effectively tackling climate risk in line with our ESG Vision 2030”, said Nilanjan Roy, Chief Financial Officer, Infosys.
