Teleperformance Commits to Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Minimizing Climate Change


Regulatory News:

Teleperformance (Paris:TEP), a leading global group in digitally integrated business services, today announced that it has set new greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This is part of the organization's overall strategy to put it on course for a net-zero decarbonization trajectory by 2040, ten years ahead of the Paris Agreement commitment.

This reinforces its commitment to the environment, its employees, and the global community. Doing so not only helps prevent the worst impacts of climate change but can also lead to substantial business benefits.

"We are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to provide for a better future for the entire planet, said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Julien. These new GHG reduction targets serve as an important milestone in reaching our net-zero carbon emissions commitment by 2040. Reducing climate change benefits everyone now and makes the world a better place for following generations."

The Science Based Targets initiative is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The SBTi call to action is one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments. The initiative mobilizes companies to set science-based targets and boost their competitive advantage in the transition to the low-carbon economy. It defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting, offers resources and guidance to reduce barriers to adoption, and independently assesses and approves companies' targets.

Teleperformance operations targets covering greenhouse gas emissions (scope 1 and 2) are consistent with reductions required to keep warming well below 2°C. This is as prescribed by the latest climate science to prevent the most damaging effects of climate change.
