Every year, the United Nations honours outstanding achievements in combating climate change through the Climate Action Awards.

Infosys said it won the award for its carbon neutral programme, which delivers scalable, innovative and practical climate actions that address climate change and help drive progress on many other sustainable development goals, such as gender equality, health and well-being and economic opportunity, the release said.
