Decarbonization: Make it happen

Leading action towards Net Zero

COP26

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.

What is net zero?

Net-zero emissions is a state when we achieve a balance between carbon emitted and carbon removed from the atmosphere. This continuous process is carried out through decarbonization and supporting nature and technology based solutions.

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.

Net-Zero Heroes

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.

Terra² app

During COP26, watch for the launch of our Terra 2 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

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.

Action required

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.
