Paris (France), February 18, 2021

Atos today announces that it is increasing its decarbonization ambition to achieve “net zero” by 2028. With this ambition, Atos is committing to cutting down the world carbon emissions less than its management and impact by fifty% by 2025[1] (scopes 1, 2, three[2]), and to offset all its residual emissions by 2028.

Atos’ new trajectory is 22 several years ahead of the 2050 goal established by the Paris Arrangement to limit world warming to 2°C by 2050 higher than pre-industrial amounts, and 7 several years 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 temperature rise to 1.5°C higher than pre-industrial amounts. Atos’ goal is five several years ahead of both equally the most stringent SBTi pathway and of the goal formerly established by the Group.

The decision to increase its ambition was enthusiastic by the success of Atos’ decarbonization options, which have previously materialized into a reduction of the Group’s world carbon emissions by fifteen% in 2020[three] (from three.three to 2.8 M Tons CO2), of which an approximated 10% is structural enhancement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 influence.

These commitments, which are measurable and auditable by 3rd parties, bind Atos to indemnify customers if the yr-over-yr carbon reduction contractually agreed commitments are not achieved.
