Leading net zero transformation
Decarbonization has long been a priority for Atos, and we believe that through bold climate action a net zero future is possible.
Wherever you are on your net zero journey, we can help build an effective strategy and deliver on ambitious targets through our climate expertise and efficient digital solutions.
What is net zero?
Net zero is a state where we add no incremental greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. This means achieving a balance between carbon emissions and carbon sinks through a combination of deep decarbonization and carbon sequestration.
UN Climate Change Conference Glasgow 2021
COP26 is a pivotal moment for the future of climate change, and the time to act is now. The time for the global community to move beyond low carbon — to no carbon — is now.
As a signatory of the Climate Pledge and contributor to the Race to Zero, the UN initiative for net-zero, Atos is contributing to the worldwide effort to help businesses reach net-zero.
In preparation for COP26, during the negotiations and following the event, learn about the Atos net-zero story — as well as our clients’ stories — to see best practices, challenges and innovative solutions that drive net-zero transformation.
Digital Vision: COP26
Accelerating to net-zero and beyond
COP26 is the moment to accelerate your efforts to achieve net-zero.
The Digital Vision: COP26 uses contributions from senior figures in business and government, as well as Atos experts, to show how organizations from every sector can embrace digital to accelerate progress to net-zero targets and shape a sustainable future.

Between now and COP26 in November, join us in celebrating the climate achievements of our clients through a series of interviews, videos and events.
Their success stories and tips on best practices, will help more organizations to take action, reduce emissions and commit to net-zero transition.

Innovation for net-zero
Knowledge is power on the journey to net-zero. When a society can clearly see and share evidence of what’s happening, then it can act. Be that at a global, policy, business or individual level.
During COP26, watch for the launch of our Terra2 app. Terra² brings satellite imagery from the world’s largest Earth observation program together with data from a global network of sensors to create the most comprehensive pictures of the Earth. Download it and share it with your stakeholders to access climate data that can:
- Inform policies
- Measure decarbonization initiatives
- Influence stakeholders and governments
- Drive behavioral change for a safer, more sustainable future
The climate challenge is a chance for businesses to lead the way to sustainability while building reputational and competitive advantage. Carbon reduction improves efficiencies, reduces costs and drives innovation to achieve success. Put simply, climate action makes commercial sense.
How to reduce your carbon intensity
Our Decarbonization Center of Excellence guides global organizations through three phases to reduce carbon in core digital and business processes. No matter your industry, we’ll work with you on individual components of the phases or all three end-to-end, depending on your needs.
Digital technology is a key enabler for net zero
Across the world, the momentum to reach net zero is growing fast. Digital adoption is also accelerating rapidly, particularly in offering new solutions that facilitate net zero transformation.
EcoAct’s climate expertise is now firmly embedded into Atos. Our end-to-end service helps our clients and partners adopt digital technology that significantly reduces their carbon emissions so they can reach net zero. Digital decarbonisation improves efficiency, reduces costs and drives innovation to achieve success. We believe climate action makes commercial sense.
Set an effective net zero strategyAn effective net zero strategy that is both ambitious and achievable first requires precise measurement of an organization’s impact. Accurate data and a baseline are key.
EcoAct, an Atos company, partners with businesses, organizations and governments to provide the widest range of best-in-class solutions to help our clients effectively tackle the challenges of climate change. We partner with you to define a net zero strategy that:
- Define your baseline emissions, set a strategy and set science-based targets
