Atos extends net zero collaboration with AWS
Atos has further extended its collaboration with Amazon Web Services. The latest move between the firms will see Atos work to enable businesses using the platform to advance on their decarbonisation journeys.
Mary Wilson, Global Sustainability Lead, Amazon Web Services (AWS), commented, “Businesses are facing increasing pressures from their stakeholders to take action together with increasing legislative demands. This set of climate related sustainability services support our customers to devise and enact sustainability programmes across the entire span of business operations in order to support the universal goal of limiting global warming to 1.5C, and reaching global net zero by 2050.”
AWS is a subsidiary of Amazon which provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and APIs to individuals, companies, and governments, on a metered pay-as-you-go basis. The platform enables clients to grow AWS organisations through alignment with its sales, marketing, funding, capture, and proposal teams.
With over 8,000 AWS accreditations and 2,700 formal AWS certifications, Atos has demonstrated extensive experience in providing consulting, professional and managed services at scale to a large number of AWS customers. Atos and AWS recently spoke about Atos’ decarbonisation solutions and the evolution of their relationship at Atos’ Tech for Climate Summit at COP27 in Sharm-El-Sheik, Egypt – and the latest collaboration in the firms’ relationships will see the consultancy support AWS with the development of tools that deliver robust, real-time insights into digital related emissions.
Diane Galbe, Senior Executive Vice President, Atos commented, “This increased collaboration which will help customers accelerate their journeys to net zero. At a time when deep decarbonization is essential, Atos powered by AWS, are providing tools that deliver robust, real-time insights into digital related emissions. These tools will help our customers to unlock the potential for action and to deliver deep emission reductions that will drive progress towards their net zero targets”.
The Atos MyCO2Compass carbon calculator is the first solution to be developed as part of the multi-year relationship. It aims to enable the effective measurement and management of carbon emissions across IT and business landscapes such as housing, fleet, travel and workforce. It will feature industry-specific, pre-defined datasets, saving customers the pain of starting from scratch when it comes to measuring emissions. These data-driven insights will empower more informed decision-making and the calculator will be available via the AWS Marketplace.
Nine-in-ten companies are currently failing to comprehensively measure their total greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new global report. Even as many companies tout “science-based” net-zero targets for the coming decades, as many as half of companies estimate an error rate of close to 40%.
