Global leaders in the fight against climate change and protecting the environment

Ranked in the top 2% of companies globally for managing our greenhouse gas emissions, we ensure that we’re reducing our negative impact on the environment while leading the way in sustainability.

We are CarbonNeutral®  

We’re proud to be certified CarbonNeutral® for our offices, data centres and business travel.  Where possible, we use renewable energy to avoid emissions of greenhouse gases – and we offset the emissions that we cannot avoid by sponsoring clean energy programmes - renewable energy plants in India, for example.  

ISO14001 

We manage our environmental impacts using an Environmental Management System (EMS) certified to ISO14001:2015.


Emissions, Energy and Business Travel  

We recognise the global challenges we all face with climate change.  Two years ago, we set ourselves targets for reducing our emissions that were consistent with limiting the rise in average global temperatures to 2 degrees.   

While this is a good target, we knew we could do more.  Therefore, we have just committed ourselves to the reductions required to limit the rise to 1.5 degrees.   

So far we have: 

  • Reduced our GHG emissions per employee by 29% since 2015
  • Acquired 78% of our electricity from renewable sources in 2018

Waste 

We reduce, reuse and recycle.  This helps us decrease the natural resources we use and the emissions we produce, while conserving energy and landfill space.  Our zero-waste-to-landfill and single-use plastic campaigns ensure that our company and our employees are aware of the importance of waste disposal and the effects that it has on the environment.  

CDP: 

We’re recognised leaders in our fight against climate change.   We’re one of 139 companies on the CDP’s A List, selected from 7,000+ disclosing, putting us in the top 2% globally. 

 

 

CarbonNeutral®: 

Our triple CarbonNeutral® certifications – in office space, data centres and business travel - make the GHG emissions from Sopra Steria’s services net zero.

 


We congratulate Sopra Steria on having its target approved and demonstrating that it takes a forward-thinking approach to business.  It joins some of the world’s leading companies in recognising that taking action now to cut emissions is the best way to future-proof growth in the transition to the low-carbon economy.

Hearty Welcome to Sopra Steria

Not Just IT

Words and pictures are not enough to describe today, I have been privileged to witness something very special indeed.

John and Kim at the airport

An early start for an experience of a lifetime

On Wednesday Kim and I had an early start; our taxi took us to the airport at 5am, so we were both up at 4am – 11.30pm UK time!

Our first day – One we’ll both never forget.

Today was a very emotional day for both Kim and myself; we visited the Shri Ghanshyam Sharma Memorial High School, Uttar Pradesh. One of the schools supported by Sopra Steria.
