Aligning with the central themes of COP28, the TCS GoZero Hub brings together academia and industry to create a leading centre for research, innovation, education, services, and digital solutions towards climate action.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) has partnered with Macquarie University to launch the TCS GoZero Hub, a research and innovation centre to guide Australian organisations in their journeys towards net zero carbon emissions.

Aligning with the central themes of COP28, this hub will focus on five core themes – energy transition, carbon management, nature positive future, circular economy and sustainable waste management, and climate adaptation and resilience – and how to limit and prepare for future climate change.

TCS and Macquarie University will collaborate to bring together multi-disciplinary and multi-faceted approaches and ideas from across industry and academia to drive research and innovation that will help enterprises, governments, regulatory bodies, and communities across Australia develop pathways to accelerate the transition to a net-zero future and beyond, while focusing on nature and people.

In addition to providing expertise and advisory services around best practices and technologies to leverage, the TCS GoZero Hub will offer a curated set of proven digital solutions for driving decarbonisation and the circular economy across value chains, and tailor them to every organisation’s unique context, helping them accelerate their net-zero journeys.

The TCS GoZero Hub will also support education pathways, providing relevant skills and knowledge to prepare students for successful, future-focused careers.

Girish Ramachandran, President, TCS Asia Pacific, said, “Innovating to build sustainable futures is something we are extremely passionate about at TCS. We are pleased to launch the TCS GoZero Hub in partnership with Macquarie University. We’re joining forces to create a leading hub of research, innovation, education and solutions that will enable informed decision-making as we move towards a net-zero carbon future.”

Professor S. Bruce Dowton, Vice-Chancellor, Macquarie University, said, “Macquarie University is committed to undertaking world-changing, impactful research, and to generating new knowledge through research and innovation that supports transformational sustainability. Our partnership with TCS, and the launch of the TCS GoZero Hub, will further amplify our impact in exciting new ways as we help to address the global decarbonisation challenge and create a more sustainable, just and equitable society.”

 Speaking to over 250 leaders from 91 companies across the Asia Pacific region at the recent TCS Summit Asia Pacific 2023, Dr. Andrew Charlton MP, Federal Member for Parramatta, said, “Australia needs to bring together its technology and innovation skills to become a sustainability leader and a significant contributor to a net-zero future. We commend TCS and Macquarie University for leading the charge with the launch of the TCS GoZero Hub. By coming together to support organisations in their decarbonisation journeys, TCS and Macquarie University are showcasing the power of collaboration, which is required to build a better future for both our people and the planet.”

The TCS GoZero Hub will be backed by TCS’s comprehensive suite of over 200 sustainability services and solutions across different industry verticals.
