SHOWING LEADERSHIP IN CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY
“By embracing sustainability as part of a company’s core business clients are able to overcome this perfect storm of economic, social and environmental turbulence.”
Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO.
In 2011, Atos continued to build extensively on the very solid foundations of the previous years. Since our last report, the sustainability agenda has moved forward. The economic crisis has forced our clients to rethink their business models and reconsider their actions.
By embracing sustainability as part of a company’s core business, clients are able to overcome this perfect storm of economic, social and environmental turbulence. Embedding sustainability in the heart of a company has proven to make sound economic sense.
In 2011 Atos Origin acquired Siemens IT Solutions and Services. This has had an impact on our workforce, our identity, our business strategy and our portfolio. In the field of sustainability, this has provided both challenges and new opportunities. Challenges to internally align the two parts of the company in the field of sustainability strategy; and opportunities since our sustainability portfolio has grown with a vast amount of sustainable solutions to offer to clients.
Internally, Atos further deployed its worldwide Wellbeing@work program. Supported by an international community of Atos young talents, it is designed to attract the best engineers and create the best working environment in line with our ambition to become one of the best companies to work for.
Regarding the environmental strategy, the three main points of focus were further reducing our environmental impact, launching carbon neutral hosting services and strengthening stakeholder dialogue in order to fine-tune our sustainability program and focus on areas that truly matter.
For Atos, 2011 was the year in which the next step was made in transforming to the Firm of the Future.
