The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has named digital transformation firm Atos among its “A-list” of companies for their positive attitude towards helping to beat climate change. The CDP’s prestigious list names the companies that have done the most through their disclosure of their climate policies to aid the fight against a changing environment. Among the industry, CDP’s annual scoring process for environmental exposure is seen as the gold standard for companies wanting to impact climate change positively.
The A-list Examined
the CDP’s A-list is released each year, alongside other A-lists which pertain to water security and leadership. The members of the CDP score the top-rated companies in the world based on their dedication to specific essential criteria. The CDP assesses these companies on the comprehensiveness of their climate change disclosure, management of risks they pose to the environment, and demonstration of best-practices centered on environmental leadership. Depending on how well companies do, they can expect to receive ratings ranging from A to D-.
Atos Leading by Example
Among the reasons why Atos was chosen for the “A-list” include the company’s dedication to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks, and help to grow the low-carbon economy. Atos had a lot of competition, however. It was merely one of a few thousand companies that the CDP scored. Atos has ended up on the list for the seventh year running, showing its dedicated ideals when it comes to such a significant problem as climate change. Atos’ CEO, Elie Girard, stated that his company aimed to ensure that its clients deploy digital solutions that would help to power a low-carbon economy. Atos has also been named in other sustainability ratings, including the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) and EcoVadis Gold Rating. Their dedication towards being a sustainable digital transformation provider is noteworthy n a field where so many others overlook the importance of sustainability.
