Atos boosts its decarbonization ambition committing to Net Zero by 2028

Paris (France), February 18, 2021

Atos today announces that it is increasing its decarbonization ambition to get to “net zero” by 2028. With this ambition, Atos is committing to minimizing the worldwide carbon emissions under its management and influence by fifty{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} by 2025[one] (scopes one, 2, three[2]), and to offset all its residual emissions by 2028.

Atos’ new trajectory is 22 yrs forward of the 2050 concentrate on established by the Paris Arrangement to limit worldwide warming to 2°C by 2050 higher than pre-industrial amounts, and seven yrs forward of the concentrate on previously established by the Group.

With this ambition, Atos also commits to get to the SBTi concentrate on by 2025. The SBTi concentrate on on greenhouse gas emission reduction aims to limit worldwide temperature rise to one.5°C higher than pre-industrial amounts. Atos’ concentrate on is 5 yrs forward of both equally the most stringent SBTi pathway and of the concentrate on previously established by the Group.

The final decision to increase its ambition was enthusiastic by the accomplishment of Atos’ decarbonization plans, which have by now materialized into a reduction of the Group’s worldwide carbon emissions by 15{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} in 2020[three] (from three.three to 2.8 M Tons CO2), of which an estimated 10{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} is structural improvement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 influence. It also demonstrates Atos’ commitment to further accelerate its customers’ electronic decarbonization.

Atos is as soon as once more positioning by itself amid the most sophisticated technologies firms globally in the fight from climate change and is helping to limit worldwide warming to one.5° C higher than pre-industrial amounts. As a reminder, Atos is rated #one in the electronic sector globally by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

“It is time to accelerate the fight from climate change. By increasing our have decarbonization ambition, we will improved aid our purchasers on their journey by tapping into the electricity of electronic systems and their recognized probable to lower carbon emissions by up to 20 {79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} in other sectors.

Atos has by now strongly executed on its decarbonization plans more than the last year, ensuing from a method that encompasses all organization routines and organization units, and yrs of continual expenditure in techniques, competencies, and research. The Group’s decarbonization initiatives are concentrated on four key locations:

  • True estate: optimization of office area and power usage across all locations, with substantial initiatives to undertake decarbonized power. This has materialized into a 34{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} lessen of worldwide CO2 emissions of Atos places of work in 2020 vs. 2019 (19{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} excluding the Covid-19 influence), with an accelerated change to carbon-free of charge and renewable power, powering 44{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} of all Atos places of work in 2020 (as opposed to twenty five{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} in 2019)
  • Datacenters: enhanced power efficiency materializing into a 15{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} lessen of worldwide power usage of Atos datacenters in 2020 vs. 2019 and a change to carbon-free of charge and renewable power, which now powers fifty five{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} of all Atos datacenters in 2020 (as opposed to 32{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} in 2019)
  • Supply chain: introduction of systematic decarbonization criteria for the Atos supply chain, which has by now led to substantial gains (e.g. a 10{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} reduction in the power usage of all new PCs). Atos was shown amid the major seven{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} of firms assessed for supplier engagement on climate change in the 2020 CDP Provider Engagement Leaderboard
  • Solutions & alternatives: Atos continually increases the power efficiency of its products and solutions, illustrated by the release in 2020 of the #one greenest device amid the major a hundred most significant supercomputers in the earth, offered to the Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Germany.

To make sure that its commitment to decarbonization is reflected at all amounts across the organization and to increase personnel awareness on electronic sustainability, Atos released in 2020 an inner carbon pricing system (eighty € / ton CO2), which applies to all of Atos’ functions, as perfectly as the “Atos Green” app, which provides Atos staff with assets to make sure the cheapest achievable environmental impression.

For its prospects, Atos is establishing a distinct decarbonization offering to aid its purchasers in swiftly applying comprehensive decarbonization techniques. Capitalizing on the acquisition of EcoAct in 2020 and the enhancement of a devoted portfolio, Atos now presents CO2 reduction commitments as a result of DLAs (Decarbonization Stage Agreements) in all big contracts. These commitments, which are measurable and auditable by third get-togethers, bind Atos to indemnify purchasers if the year-more than-year carbon reduction contractually agreed commitments are not achieved.
