Paris (France), February 18, 2021

Atos now announces that it is raising its decarbonization ambition to reach “net zero” by 2028. With this ambition, Atos is committing to lowering the global carbon emissions less than its handle and influence by 50% by 2025[1] (scopes 1, two, three[two]), and to offset all its residual emissions by 2028.

Atos’ new trajectory is 22 decades ahead of the 2050 goal set by the Paris Settlement to limit global warming to 2°C by 2050 previously mentioned pre-industrial concentrations, and seven decades ahead of the goal formerly set by the Group.

With this ambition, Atos also commits to reach the SBTi goal by 2025. The SBTi goal on greenhouse gasoline emission reduction aims to limit global temperature increase to 1.5°C previously mentioned pre-industrial concentrations. Atos’ goal is 5 decades ahead of both of those the most stringent SBTi pathway and of the goal formerly set by the Group.

The final decision to raise its ambition was motivated by the results of Atos’ decarbonization programs, which have previously materialized into a reduction of the Group’s global carbon emissions by fifteen% in 2020[three] (from three.three to two.8 M Tons CO2), of which an approximated ten% is structural improvement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 outcome. It also reflects Atos’ dedication to even further accelerate its customers’ electronic decarbonization.

Atos is once once more positioning itself among the the most sophisticated know-how corporations worldwide in the battle versus weather improve and is serving to to limit global warming to 1.5° C previously mentioned pre-industrial concentrations. As a reminder, Atos is ranked #1 in the electronic sector worldwide by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

“It is time to accelerate the battle versus weather improve. By raising our own decarbonization ambition, we will improved guidance our shoppers on their journey by tapping into the electricity of electronic technologies and their recognized likely to minimize carbon emissions by up to twenty p.c in other sectors. Our worldwide industry leadership in decarbonization will immediately benefit all our customers”, explained Elie Girard, Atos CEO.

Atos has previously strongly executed on its decarbonization programs above the previous yr, resulting from a technique that encompasses all business enterprise routines and business enterprise models, and decades of constant financial investment in capabilities, competencies, and research. The Group’s decarbonization efforts are focused on four major places:

  • Serious estate: optimization of office space and strength usage throughout all areas, with substantial efforts to adopt decarbonized strength. This has materialized into a 34% reduce of global CO2 emissions of Atos workplaces in 2020 vs. 2019 (19% excluding the Covid-19 outcome), with an accelerated switch to carbon-free and renewable strength, powering forty four% of all Atos workplaces in 2020 (versus twenty five% in 2019)
  • Datacenters: enhanced strength performance materializing into a fifteen% reduce of global strength usage of Atos datacenters in 2020 vs. 2019 and a switch to carbon-free and renewable strength, which now powers 55% of all Atos datacenters in 2020 (versus 32% in 2019)
  • Provide chain: introduction of systematic decarbonization standards for the Atos supply chain, which has previously led to substantial gains (e.g. a ten% reduction in the strength usage of all new PCs). Atos was mentioned among the the top rated seven% of corporations assessed for provider engagement on weather improve in the 2020 CDP Supplier Engagement Leaderboard
  • Merchandise & alternatives: Atos consistently enhances the strength performance of its items, illustrated by the release in 2020 of the #1 greenest machine among the the top rated one hundred largest supercomputers in the entire world, delivered to the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany.

To make certain that its dedication to decarbonization is reflected at all concentrations throughout the business and to raise staff consciousness on electronic sustainability, Atos launched in 2020 an inner carbon pricing system (80 € / ton CO2), which applies to all of Atos’ operations, as very well as the “Atos Green” application, which provides Atos workforce with methods to make certain the lowest achievable environmental affect.

In parallel, Atos programs to create a strengthened offsetting system, concentrating largely on carbon sequestration, for all its residual emissions.

For its buyers, Atos is producing a exclusive decarbonization presenting to guidance its shoppers in rapidly implementing extensive decarbonization tactics. Capitalizing on the acquisition of EcoAct in 2020 and the enhancement of a committed portfolio, Atos now delivers CO2 reduction commitments as a result of DLAs (Decarbonization Degree Agreements) in all big contracts. These commitments, which are measurable and auditable by third get-togethers, bind Atos to indemnify shoppers if the yr-above-yr carbon reduction contractually agreed commitments are not met.
