Shell has signed an agreement with T-Systems International to accelerate its transition to net zero emissions and advance digital innovation.
The companies will work alongside one another to achieve their own net zero targets, as well as those of their customers and supply chains.
They have also agreed to co-invest in new business models that are focused on the decarbonisation of society and accelerate Shell’s digital transformation.
T-Systems’ sister company will have its renewable energy provided by Shell, as it targets powering its operations using 100% renewable energy by the end of this year.
In addition to this, Shell’s subsidiaries NewMotion and Ubitricity will have pledged to provide T-Systems with more than 10,000 electric vehicle (EV) chargers across the next three years.
The companies will also explore smart city solutions and smart lighting projects including the possibility of streetlight based EV charging.
Elisabeth Brinton, Executive Vice President of Renewables & Energy Solutions at Shell, said: “Getting society to net zero will require unprecedented levels of collaboration.”
T-Systems CEO Adel Al-Saleh reaffirmed this, stating: “No individual and no company can solve the climate challenge alone. This is why we have put sustainability at the core of our strategy as we aim to become the leading European full IT-service provider.”
