Head of Global Managed Services, Atos
Atos is pursuing its objective to drive energy efficiency and capacity in its operations to meet its carbon neutral ambition. Our high performance computing, virtualization and cloud technologies are leading to significant reductions in energy consumption.
Head of Big Data and Security, Group Chief Technology Officer, Atos
We expect that in 2020 our supercomputers will be 250 times more energy efficient than in 2010.
tCO2 M€ revenue Global footprint by revenue
GJ per Million EUR : Energy intensity by revenue
Number of sites certified ISO 14001 aiming for 100% of major sites certified by 2015
Carbon: reduce by 50% the ratio of ton of CO2 / million € revenue (2012-2015)
Atos is currently on track to reduce the carbon intensity of its operations by 50% by the end of 2015 compared to 2012 baseline. We decreased the ratio from 31,6 TCO2 eq/M€ revenue in 2012 to 17,03 in 2014 representing a 46,1% drop within 2 years.
Decarbonized electricity: seek to consume 100% decarbonized electricity in our strategic datacenters by 2015.
66% of the electricity bought by Atos datacenters (scope 2) is supplied by decarbonized sources. Similarly, 58% of the electricity bought by Atos offices (scope 2) is nearly carbon free. 100% of Atos residual datacenter emissions are offset, providing carbon neutral services.
Environment management system and ISO 14001 certification: at all major Atos sites by end 2015
Atos has increased the number of sites to be certified according to ISO 14001 by 2015 from 102 to 110, of which 30% are datacenters and 70% are offices. By the end of 2014, 65 sites were certified and 17 were undergoing the process of certification. The 28 remaining sites will start certification in 2015.
The most significant environmental impact resulting from Atos’ business operations arises from the consumption of energy and thereby the direct or
indirect emission carbon into the atmosphere. To reduce energy consumption Atos is focusing its attention on its major emissions sources – data centers, offices and travel.
CO2 emissions from our datacenters have been reduced considerably over the past few years through actions such as consolidation of sites, improving power usage effectiveness, developing decarbonized energy and virtualization solutions to increase IT equipment usage. At the same time, we are using innovation as a means to achieve our carbon neutral goal. Atos will also benefit from the innovative cooling technologies developed by Bull for high performance computers in datacenters which are around 40% more energy efficient than traditional air-cooled servers.
As part of our Smart Campus concept, our smart desktops with voice and data sharing capabilities are playing a role in eliminating the need for travel, and our blueKiwi platform allows for remote collaboration with colleagues around the world. Our global travel policy takes part to the environmental efforts promoting the use of low carbon transport options.
Atos’ determined efforts over the past few years to reduce its environmental footprint have
led to progressive reductions in CO2 emissions. Each year, the results are independently verified by an external
third party. Based on its strong carbon performance, Atos has been ranked for the second year as a global carbon leader
in the IT sector by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
