Approach to ESG

There has never been a better time to leverage technology and human capabilities to tackle Environment, Social and Governance challenges.

We aim to be the cornerstone of our ecosystem for lasting positive ESG impacts. Leveraging the spirit and energy of Capgemini teams, and using our operational excellence, innovative assets, and added-value partnerships, we continually increase our ESG performance and develop solutions and services to substantially improve the environmental performance of our clients.

ESG is embedded in our corporate strategy, where we focus on eight ESG priorities that have significant positive impacts on Capgemini’s business model and value drivers, as well as for our stakeholders.

        *Our initial objective, as published in our ESG Policy in 2021, was to become net zero well ahead of 2050. Since then, we have refined our net zero targets in line with the Science Based Target initiative’s (SBTi ) new Corporate Net-Zero Standard. Capgemini’s refined net zero targets have been assessed by the SBTi and were approved in July 2022. Our new net zero headline target is to achieve a 90% reduction in carbon emissions across Scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 2040, compared to a baseline of 2019.
