Atos today announces that it is boosting its decarbonization ambition to reach “net zero” by 2028. With this ambition, Atos is committing to cutting down the world-wide carbon emissions under its handle and affect by 50% by 2025[one] (scopes one, two, 3[two]), and to offset all its residual emissions by 2028.

Atos’ new trajectory is 22 several years in advance of the 2050 focus on established by the Paris Agreement to restrict world-wide warming to 2°C by 2050 over pre-industrial ranges, and seven several years in advance of the focus on formerly established by the Team.

With this ambition, Atos also commits to reach the SBTi focus on by 2025. The SBTi focus on on greenhouse gasoline emission reduction aims to restrict world-wide temperature rise to one.5°C over pre-industrial ranges. Atos’ focus on is 5 several years in advance of both the most stringent SBTi pathway and of the focus on formerly established by the Team.

The decision to raise its ambition was determined by the good results of Atos’ decarbonization programs, which have already materialized into a reduction of the Group’s world-wide carbon emissions by fifteen% in 2020[3] (from 3.3 to two.eight M Tons CO2), of which an approximated 10% is structural advancement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 result. It also demonstrates Atos’ motivation to additional accelerate its customers’ electronic decarbonization.

Atos is when all over again positioning alone among the the most superior engineering firms around the globe in the fight from local climate modify and is supporting to restrict world-wide warming to one.5° C over pre-industrial ranges. As a reminder, Atos is rated #one in the electronic sector around the globe by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

“It is time to accelerate the fight from local climate modify. By boosting our individual decarbonization ambition, we will far better help our purchasers on their journey by tapping into the energy of electronic technologies and their identified opportunity to reduce carbon emissions by up to twenty percent in other sectors. Our around the globe marketplace leadership in decarbonization will straight advantage all our customers”, stated Elie Girard, Atos CEO.

Atos has already strongly executed on its decarbonization programs about the past yr, ensuing from a strategy that encompasses all business enterprise things to do and business enterprise units, and several years of ongoing financial commitment in abilities, competencies, and study. The Group’s decarbonization attempts are concentrated on four primary regions:

  • Serious estate: optimization of office environment house and power intake throughout all areas, with considerable attempts to adopt decarbonized power. This has materialized into a 34% minimize of world-wide CO2 emissions of Atos workplaces in 2020 vs. 2019 (19% excluding the Covid-19 result), with an accelerated switch to carbon-free of charge and renewable power, powering forty four% of all Atos workplaces in 2020 (versus twenty five% in 2019)
  • Datacenters: enhanced power effectiveness materializing into a fifteen% minimize of world-wide power intake of Atos datacenters in 2020 vs. 2019 and a switch to carbon-free of charge and renewable power, which now powers 55% of all Atos datacenters in 2020 (versus 32% in 2019)
  • Source chain: introduction of systematic decarbonization conditions for the Atos offer chain, which has already led to considerable gains (e.g. a 10% reduction in the power intake of all new PCs). Atos was stated among the the top seven% of firms assessed for provider engagement on local climate modify in the 2020 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard
  • Solutions & options: Atos repeatedly increases the power effectiveness of its products and solutions, illustrated by the launch in 2020 of the #one greenest device among the the top one hundred major supercomputers in the earth, furnished to the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany.

To ensure that its motivation to decarbonization is reflected at all ranges throughout the business and to raise staff consciousness on electronic sustainability, Atos launched in 2020 an inside carbon pricing mechanism (eighty € / ton CO2), which applies to all of Atos’ operations, as perfectly as the “Atos Green” application, which supplies Atos staff members with resources to ensure the least expensive attainable environmental impact.

In parallel, Atos programs to build a reinforced offsetting plan, focusing mostly on carbon sequestration, for all its residual emissions.

For its customers, Atos is acquiring a exclusive decarbonization giving to help its purchasers in promptly implementing comprehensive decarbonization techniques. Capitalizing on the acquisition of EcoAct in 2020 and the growth of a devoted portfolio, Atos now gives CO2 reduction commitments by way of DLAs (Decarbonization Stage Agreements) in all huge contracts. These commitments, which are measurable and auditable by 3rd events, bind Atos to indemnify purchasers if the yr-about-yr carbon reduction contractually agreed commitments are not met.
