Tietoevry has been recognized for leadership in corporate transparency and performance on climate change by global environmental non-profit CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), securing a place on its annual ‘A List’ third consecutive year.
Based on data reported through CDP’s 2022 Climate Change questionnaire, Tietoevry is one of the about 300 companies that achieved an ‘A’ - out of more than 15 000 companies altogether scored.
“I’m proud that we have established our position at CDP’s A list of the forerunner companies. In the long-term sustainability plan, we have set ambitious targets to achieve net-zero carbon emissions in our operations by 2025. We are working to cut 80% of our market-based energy-related GHG emissions by 2023. With our carbon handprint model we can also concretize the positive impact digital solutions and services can have on customers’ emissions,” says Ida Bohman Steenberg, Head of Sustainability at Tietoevry.
“We focus our measures on where we can have the biggest impact: running our offices and data centres with a strong emphasis on energy efficiency and reducing business travel. Our carbon reduction targets have been verified by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as being in line with the ambitions to limit global warming to 1.5°C, and we expect our suppliers to commit to SBTs as well,” continues Bohman Steenberg.
CDP’s annual environmental disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. In 2022, over 680 investors with over US$130 trillion in assets and 280 major purchasers with US$6.4 trillion in procurement spend requested companies to disclose data on environmental impacts, risks and opportunities through CDP’s platform. A record-breaking 18 700 companies responded.
Tietoevry has also been recognized by Ecovadis with the highest possible Platinum score.
