With this ambition, Atos is committing to reducing the worldwide carbon emissions underneath its management and influence by fifty% by 2025[one] (scopes one, 2, three[2]), and to offset all its residual emissions by 2028.

Atos’ new trajectory is 22 years in advance of the 2050 focus on established by the Paris Arrangement to restrict worldwide warming to 2°C by 2050 above pre-industrial ranges, and seven years in advance of the focus on formerly established by the Group.

With this ambition, Atos also commits to access the SBTi focus on by 2025. The SBTi focus on on greenhouse gasoline emission reduction aims to restrict worldwide temperature rise to one.5°C above pre-industrial ranges.

The determination to increase its ambition was determined by the results of Atos’ decarbonization ideas, which have already materialized into a reduction of the Group’s worldwide carbon emissions by fifteen% in 2020[three] (from three.three to 2.eight M Tons CO2), of which an believed ten% is structural improvement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 influence.

To be certain that its determination to decarbonization is reflected at all ranges across the company and to increase employee recognition on electronic sustainability, Atos introduced in 2020 an internal carbon pricing system (80 € / ton CO2), which applies to all of Atos’ operations, as nicely as the “Atos Green” application, which delivers Atos workers with methods to be certain the lowest attainable environmental affect.

In parallel, Atos ideas to build a strengthened offsetting program, concentrating predominantly on carbon sequestration, for all its residual emissions.

For its consumers, Atos is producing a exclusive decarbonization offering to assistance its customers in promptly implementing thorough decarbonization strategies. Capitalizing on the acquisition of EcoAct in 2020 and the enhancement of a dedicated portfolio, Atos now gives CO2 reduction commitments via DLAs (Decarbonization Level Agreements) in all substantial contracts. These commitments, which are measurable and auditable by 3rd functions, bind Atos to indemnify customers if the calendar year-over-calendar year carbon reduction contractually agreed commitments are not met.
