Infosys INFY recently inked a strategic partnership with The Economist Group to develop a new business-to-business (B2B) model to facilitate and accelerate sustainability solutions.

Per the multi-year contract, the India-based IT services provider will be combining its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered digital services capabilities with the media giant’s expertise in policy research, insights and event organization to devise world-transforming solutions. The announcement and launch of the contract’s first phase will occur in October 2021.

Both the companies are committed to designing sustainable business practices, which intend to address some of the most pressing sustainability issues of the planet. Together, they plan to develop a B2B model to unlock long-term thinking of businesses and other institutions. It is worth mentioning that the model will be centered on societal welfare, thereby creating necessary changes to achieve the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Under the contract, Infosys will be advancing discourses to world leaders and big businesses on sustainability, in an effort to spread environmental and social awareness. The partnership also intends to take necessary actions for the preservation of the planet.
