This ongoing commitment demonstrates Atos’ outstanding sustainability performance and sets Atos apart as a responsible employer, a leader in data protection and a trusted partner in the digital transformation of its clients.

Innovation, ethics, transparency and data security are also key priorities for Atos for inclusive and sustainable growth.
