Capgemini Emission Goals Validated by SBTi
Capgemini announced the validation by SBTi of its new long-term (2040) and short term (2030) net zero carbon reduction targets.
The company’s new targets include a 90% reduction in all carbon emissions across scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 2040 compared to a baseline of 2019.
Its near-term (2030) Scope 3 targets for commuting and business travel have increased to a 55% reduction per employee from a 2019 baseline (compared to 50% per employee reduction from a 2015 baseline) and its Scope 1 and 2 targets (80% absolute reduction by 2030) as well as Scope 3 supply chain targets (50% absolute reduction by 2030) were strengthened by revising the baseline year from 2015 to 2019.
“The climate crisis demands bold actions, such as the new targets we have set for the Group, leading to a 90% absolute carbon reduction covering our entire value chain,” said Aiman Ezzat, Chief Executive Officer of the Capgemini Group in a statement. “Transitioning to a low carbon economy will also require more innovation and collaboration with our partners, clients and suppliers.”
Capgemini has goals to help its clients save at least 10 million tons of CO2e by 2030 through a new framework of sustainability offers.
The Group has proactively engaged with its top 100 suppliers (accounting for around 50% of all supply chain emissions) and is currently transitioning to 100% renewable electricity by 2025.
