With this ambition, Atos also commits to attain the SBTi goal by 2025. The SBTi goal on greenhouse gasoline emission reduction aims to restrict international temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial degrees. Atos’ goal is five many years in advance of both equally the most stringent SBTi pathway and of the goal earlier established by the Team.

The selection to elevate its ambition was determined by the results of Atos’ decarbonization strategies, which have already materialized into a reduction of the Group’s international carbon emissions by fifteen% in 2020[three] (from three.three to two.eight M Tons CO2), of which an estimated ten% is structural advancement in addition to the conjunctural Covid-19 influence.
