Capgemini has had a decade long focus on reducing environmental impacts and whilst much has been achieved to date, we are now announcing our increased ambition. I have put acting on climate change at the heart of our Group priorities with a focal point of our ambitious target of net zero by 2030.”

CDP "A" List stamp for Climate Action

Our ambition to be net zero by 2030 is a significant step on our journey. As one of the first in our sector to set science-based targets, we are proud of our commitment to taking bold action on climate change, and earlier this year we achieved a place on the CDP’s prestigious A list in recognition for our approach and impact.

We are also committed to helping our clients drive down their carbon emissions with a target to help clients save 10 million carbon tonnes by 2030. Find out more here.
