Atos today announced that it has been awarded the highest triple-A rating in the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings 2021, ranking it among the top 4% of companies in its industry (the “Software and Service” category). The Group has held the triple-A rating since 2017 and reached this year an all-time high score.
With this assessment, Atos demonstrates its continued commitment to sustainability and its excellence in ESG practices. Atos is a leader in digital decarbonization, supported by its recent commitment to net zero emissions by 2028 and its comprehensive decarbonization portfolio.
In 2021, 140 “Software and Services” companies from the MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI) were assessed based on ESG criteria. The MSCI ESG Ratings report is designated to help institutional investors identify ESG risks and opportunities. MSCI ESG Research is one of the largest providers of ESG data and analysis. Companies are assessed and rated on a ‘AAA’ to ‘CCC’ scale, according to their exposure to industry specific ESG risks, and their ability to manage those risks relative to peers.
Philippe Mareine, Chief Digital & Transformation Officer, Head of CSR at Atos said: “We are proud to see our sustainability efforts recognized by MSCI once again, as it is a guarantee of confidence for our socially-responsible customers, partners and stakeholders. In 2021, we raised our own decarbonization ambitions to reach “net zero” by 2028, reaffirming that sustainability lies at the very heart of our overall strategy. We have also undertaken new initiatives to foster diversity, digital inclusion, innovation and data security. This rating supports our long-term commitment to helping transition to a more sustainable economy.”
