EcoVadis: Atos rewarded again with "Gold"
Atos was also awarded the "Gold" level by EcoVadis in September 2019 for its annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance assessment. With a best score ever of 80/100, the Group ranks in the Top 1% of companies evaluated in all categories: environment, workplace practices, fair business practices and management of its own supply chains. Atos also supports its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility by using EcoVadis to ensure that its top 250 suppliers are assessed on their CSR performance.
Thierry Breton, Chairman & CEO of Atos, commented: "Atos' extra-financial performance in corporate social responsibility is once again recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index World & Europe and EcoVadis. This dual recognition reflects our commitment to an integrated approach that engages our company, our employees, our customers and our suppliers, in our contribution to society and the environments in which we operate around the world. This approach is rooted in our daily lives and has been enshrined in our bylaws since earlier this year with the integration of our ‘Raison d'être’”.
“We congratulate Atos for being included in the DJSI World & Europe. The SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment has again raised the bar in identifying those companies best-positioned to address future sustainability challenges and opportunities. This year – which marks the 20th anniversary of the DJSI – which has had a record corporate interest in the SAM CSA, reflects the enduring relevance of the DJSI for measuring and advancing ESG practices," says Manjit Jus, Head of ESG Ratings, RobecoSAM.
