Before joining forces, both Tieto and EVRY were building a sustainable future with their stakeholder and customers.
Systematic work to reduce the company’s CO2 emissions caused by its operations had been carried out by EVRY for several years. It set a Science Based Target in line with the IPCC’s 1.5-degree low-carbon society target , stating that the company would reduce all Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 90% by 2050.
The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an independent, non-profit organization that runs a global disclosure system for companies, investors and cities to manage their environmental impacts. In 2019, EVRY was awarded the highest grade for the fourth year in a row, making it one of 17 Nordic companies (and180 globally) to reach the leadership level and make it on to the CDP’s A-list.
EVRY also helped develop solutions and create opportunities for society to reduce its environmental impact. Itwas committed to a continuous programme of work to lower the group’s own environmental impact through greater energy efficiency, waste management and the use of electronic communication and other measures to reduce travel, as well as a proactive procurement policy.
At Tieto, externally-verified sustainability reporting was key to increasing transparency and reporting continuous, data-driven sustainability activities to stakeholders. Tieto’s sustainability reports between 2014 and 2019 offer an excellent overview of how the company minimizes environmental impact, and focused on being an ethical forerunner and creating value for its stakeholders over several years.
