Waste generated in operations Relevant, calculated 952.7 Based on emission factor for nearly 35 categories of waste under broader categories of organic, inorganic, e-waste, hazardous and other mixed wastes. For computing GHG emissions from Waste, we have applied the conversion factors available in the WARM (Waste Reduction Model) tool from U.S. EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency)

The emission from the e-waste disposal is estimated at 1.40 tons of CO2 equivalent (as per US EPA’s WARM tool emission factor). All e-waste is collected and recycled by authorised recyclers.
