Goal: Achieve zero waste to landfill by 2020

As an IT services and consulting organization, TCS has no process wastes or significant primary wastes and emissions. The solid waste generation is fairly limited and restricted primarily to municipal solid waste (MSW). We also generate electronic and electrical waste and a small proportion of potentially hazardous wastes (such as lead-acid batteries and waste lube oil).

Waste management metrics

Municipal solid waste today is a growing concern with limited landfill space available. It is one of the contributing factors for global warming and climate change. TCS’ waste management practices seek to reduce the environmental impact of waste streams as far as possible through reduction in generation, segregation at source, reuse and recycling, and proper management.
