Corporate Responsibility Report 2012

Demonstrating our excellence in corporate responsibility

Corporate Responsibility Report 2012

Since last year, operating sustainable businesses has become even more important for many companies. The ongoing economic crisis has forced enterprises and organisations to further explore the possibilities of reshaping their business models and to think more about the long-term implications of their every action.


In 2012, Atos continued to build extensively on the very solid foundations of previous years to take a leadership position when it comes to corporate responsibility. As a result, Atos was once again awarded an A+ by the GRI for its sustainability reporting, the highest level of award possible.



Some key events include:


  • Atos was a main partner at the Global Sustainability Conference in Evian.
  • 41,081 employees (54% of our global workforce) worldwide took part in local Great Place to Work surveys.
  • In November 2012 Atos announced that we will aim to reduce our carbon footprint by 50% by 2015 (2008 baseline).
  • In December 2012, Atos launched the MyCar programme – our first fleet of electric cars, produced in collaboration with electric car specialists Bollore, for free use by our Business Technologists based at our Headquarters in Bezons, France.

Bringing in the changes we want to see in the world


Atos’ mission focuses on ensuring our own culture, operations and client solutions continue to evolve towards those of a Firm of the Future. This transformation incorporates two sides of the same coin: operational excellence and value creation. Through our operations and work ethic we seek to exceed international regulations wherever possible, whilst driving sustainability into the heart of our operations and improving the wellbeing of our stakeholder community.


Through our solutions and client engagement we seek to push the boundaries through innovative, yet tried and tested solutions to help our clients on their IT-enabled transformation journey to become more sustainable companies. We believe that bringing together People, Technology and Business is the way forward.
