Wipro is a global IT hardware and services company that has made a serious effort to reduce waste. In 2010, 79 percent of its waste was recycled, according to conservative estimates. Wipro’s paper-recycling plant in Bangalore recycled 20 tons of waste paper into notepads, avoiding the use of 50 tons of timber. The company has two operational biogas plants that can convert food waste to cooking fuel, saving 100 tons of greenhouse-gas emissions. During 2010, Wipro’s sustainability initiatives reduced greenhouse-gas emissions by 34,000 metric tons from the previous year.
