We are committed to helping our clients reduce their environmental impacts
Whilst we continue to focus on reducing our own environmental impacts, we recognise that the greatest positive impact we can have is through the services we deliver to our clients. Capgemini is a founding member of the Net Positive Project, a cross sector coalition that aims to shift the role of companies in society, changing the focus from minimising negative impacts to defining new ways of doing business that puts more into society, the environment and the global economy than they take out. Specifically, we are focusing on how technology can be leveraged to help our clients reduce their carbon emissions and achieve their sustainability targets.
To date we have identified four key methods through which we can assist our clients to reduce their carbon emissions:
Measuring our progress
We have developed an adaptable framework and carbon calculation tool that allows us to measure carbon impacts across a broad range of sectors and projects. While assessing the indirect impacts of our projects poses some challenges around the allocation of the carbon benefits realised by our services, we are committed to accurate and transparent reporting in this area. Consequently, we will continuously develop our tools and framework as technology advances and our client portfolio changes.
Announcing our new global ambition
Building on the progress of the UK Net Positive project and our growing understanding of the link between technology and environmental impacts, we announced a new global commitment in 2017. Our objective is to work collaboratively with our clients to help them save 10 million tonnes of CO2e by 2030.
