We shifted to an integrated facility management sourcing (IFMS) arrangement with third party (partners) across our key owned locations. The IFMS outsourcing contracts also include Operations and maintenance of pollution control equipment, hence from this reporting year we are not able to separately delineate these expenses.
The increase in the expenses incurred by Installation of Cleaner Environmental Technologies is because of the new initiatives we adopted in our campuses which includes smart water metering, aerators etcetera. Refer to the section ‘Responsible Water Program’.
Wipro complies with all applicable environmental regulations and in the reporting period, there were no instances of environmental fines imposed or negative consequences due to our operations.
