Showing Leadership in Corporate Responsibility
“Our actions provide the best evidence of our commitment.”
Thierry Breton, Chairman and CEO of Atos
Sustainability is at the core of our corporate strategy and our ambition remains to be recognised as a world leader in providing innovative IT solutions to help our clients become more sustainable.
In 2010, following the economic crisis, our clients have faced fundamental and permanent changes to the way they do business. Over the next ten years, it is now even clearer that the successful and surviving businesses will be those that properly embrace sustainability.
This new approach recognises that sustainable business is good economics which means that sustainability needs to become part of a company’s core business, embedded in its processes, running through its culture and influencing every activity.
So by embedding sustainability in our own company as part of the Group’s DNA, we automatically ensure that it is similarly embedded in all the propositions we make to our clients. In this way Atos will become ‘best in class’, not only for its own operations, but also in the way it serves its clients.
The company wants to be recognised as one of the best companies to work for, innovative, socially responsible and able to attract and retain the best talents across all our geographies. This is the purpose of the Well Being at Work ambition which was launched early 2010.
And recently the Group has proven its commitment by joining the United Nations Global Compact and by announcing to offset all of our data centres’ carbon emissions, thus being the first global IT provider to offer fully integrated carbon neutral hosting services.
