Climate change, energy & emissions

Environmental issues, and particularly climate change, present some of the biggest economic and societal challenges we’ve ever faced.  We know that we can have a positive impact on not only our own, but also our clients’ environmental footprints: technology – specifically digital technology – has a major role to play in improving environmental sustainability and fighting climate change.

Our carbon reduction targets have been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative, an internationally recognised initiative offering mathematical models for identifying the environmental footprint of activities, to set ourselves ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets.
