Atos now announces that it is raising its decarbonization ambition to achieve “net zero” by 2028. With this ambition, Atos is committing to cutting down the world-wide carbon emissions less than its manage and affect by fifty% by 2025[one] (scopes one, 2, 3[2]), and to offset all its residual emissions by 2028.

Atos’ new trajectory is 22 yrs ahead of the 2050 goal established by the Paris Settlement to limit world-wide warming to 2°C by 2050 over pre-industrial levels, and seven yrs ahead of the goal formerly established by the Group.

With this ambition, Atos also commits to achieve the SBTi goal by 2025. The SBTi goal on greenhouse gasoline emission reduction aims to limit world-wide temperature increase to one.5°C over pre-industrial levels. Atos’ goal is 5 yrs ahead of equally the most stringent SBTi pathway and of the goal formerly established by the Group.

The decision to elevate its ambition was determined by the achievement of Atos’ decarbonization programs, which have now materialized into a reduction of the Group’s world-wide carbon emissions by 15% in 2020[3] (from 3.3 to 2.8 M Tons CO2), of which an approximated ten% is structural enhancement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 influence. It also reflects Atos’ motivation to further more accelerate its customers’ electronic decarbonization.

  • Offer chain: introduction of systematic decarbonization criteria for the Atos provide chain, which has now led to significant gains (e.g. a ten% reduction in the strength usage of all new PCs). Atos was stated among the leading seven% of providers assessed for supplier engagement on weather transform in the 2020 CDP Provider Engagement Leaderboard
  • Items & remedies: Atos continuously improves the strength performance of its solutions, illustrated by the launch in 2020 of the #one greenest machine among the leading 100 premier supercomputers in the entire world, supplied to the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany.

To ensure that its motivation to decarbonization is mirrored at all levels across the company and to elevate employee recognition on electronic sustainability, Atos introduced in 2020 an interior carbon pricing mechanism (80 € / ton CO2), which applies to all of Atos’ functions, as well as the “Atos Green” app, which gives Atos staff members with sources to ensure the cheapest doable environmental impact.

In parallel, Atos programs to establish a reinforced offsetting application, focusing generally on carbon sequestration, for all its residual emissions.

For its customers, Atos is building a unique decarbonization featuring to guidance its consumers in speedily employing extensive decarbonization tactics. Capitalizing on the acquisition of EcoAct in 2020 and the improvement of a dedicated portfolio, Atos now offers CO2 reduction commitments through DLAs (Decarbonization Stage Agreements) in all huge contracts. These commitments, which are measurable and auditable by 3rd get-togethers, bind Atos to indemnify consumers if the year-about-year carbon reduction contractually agreed commitments are not fulfilled.
