Achieve net-zero in Healthcare & Life Sciences

Population wellness in a healthy climate

Consultancy and digital solutions

Climate change impacts healthcare and life sciences (H&LS) in many ways. It has a major impact on human health, and organizations will need to respond to increased risk of certain diseases. They also need to ensure their own processes to achieve net-zero to prevent more impact. Net-zero is a state where we add no incremental greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.

The Atos Decarbonization Center of Excellence is available to guide healthcare and life sciences organizations through four phases to address climate change and reduce carbon in core digital and business processes. Atos has strengthened its decarbonized digital solution portfolio and expertise with highly specialized skills from EcoAct, an Atos company. EcoAct is an internationally recognized climate strategy consulting firm. Readpress release.
