Addressing the Larsen & Toubro (L&T) employees, S N Subrahmanyan, CEO & MD, said that the emerging business models of the company including Green Energy, Data Centres, EduTech and SuFin should be pursued with vigour.

Pointing out digital disruption and meta verse as the most pertinent themes of 2022, Subrahmanyan said that technology-driven solutions have come to the fore offering greater connectivity, speedier transactions, and instant resolutions.
