French tech and consulting giant Capgemini has announced its ambition to become carbon-neutral business by 2030.

In January, the firm achieved its science-based target to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 30% per employee a decade ahead of schedule.

The company aims to fulfill its climate ambitions by expanding a workplace initiative to reduce the need for business travel and commuting and introducing new programmes including the roll-out of a hybrid and electric vehicle (EV) fleet.

Capgemini also plans to engage with suppliers to reduce the carbon impact of its supply chain and switch to 100% renewable electricity.

The firm’s Chief Executive Officer Aiman Ezzat said: “The current global situation with the Covid-19 pandemic has amplified the importance of the need to live in balance with our planet.

“A strong set of actions have been put in place, that range from expanding our digital workplace initiatives and work from home, through to leveraging technology to help our clients drive down their own emissions.”
