Atos recognized by international nonprofit organization CDP as a world leader for corporate action on climate change
Atos is once again positioned on the Climate A List
Paris, 25 October 2016
Atos, an international leader in digital services, has been awarded today the best score in climate performance by the CDP and positioned itself on its 2016 Climate A List.
Thousands of companies have submitted information to be independently assessed against CDP scoring methodology. Among them, less than 200 have made it to the Climate A list worldwide in 2016. Atos is one of these 9% to be awarded an “A” grade for their performance and actions to combat climate change.
Olivier Cuny, Atos Executive Vice-President and General Secretary, said: “As a leading provider of digital services, we are particularly proud of this award. This excellent result is due to the continuous efforts made by Atos to include the environmental challenge in its strategy, to reduce its own footprint and to innovate and develop digital solutions that our clients can use to meet both their business and climate challenges.”
CDP’s Chief Executive Officer Paul Simpson said:“We congratulate the 193 A List companies that are leading the change towards our low carbon future. Companies are key actors in enabling the global economy to achieve its new climate goals, and the leadership of Atos points the way for others to take bold action and capitalize on the many opportunities that await.”
The 2016 Climate Leadership Awards ceremony took place today in Paris at the French Ministry of Environment. The Climate A List, along with the climate scores of all companies publicly taking part in CDP’s climate change program this year, are available on CDP’s website.
