Atos has launched a new global offering designed to assist enterprises in reaching their corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals.
According to research, 57 percent of enterprise IT’s carbon footprint is attributable to workplace devices, so the offering is aimed at providing organizations with access to new sustainable IT solutions.
Since the 2021 announcement of Atos and BSI Kitemark’s partnership, Atos has expanded its portfolio and created a comprehensive suite of more than 20 “Tech for Good” services and solutions which encompass social value and accessibility criteria.
The first segment in the offering addresses device lifecycle management. Atos is now working with a global network of industrial partners to offer clients lower-carbon laptop replacement options which include performance-based refresh, extended use, refurbishing or remanufacturing.
The “Atos Tech 4 Good Assistant” application offers employees real-time feedback about their performance against environmental and social parameters. The assistant can recommend actions such as removing unnecessary programs, turning off the laptop or changing settings. Available via Microsoft Teams or pop-up notification, the assistant can offer a monthly performance report for each end user.
The final part of the sustainable workplace offering provides consolidated data and recommended actions to IT and CSR leaders. These recommendations allow leaders to closely monitor and manage their workplace carbon footprint as well as to improve the impact of the service in terms of social value and accessibility.
The Atos Tech 4 Good Assistant solution already monitors more than 100 device models, applications and services and offers over ten dashboards to track metrics like device redeployment and improved electricity use. The offering has been co-designed with several Atos clients to ensure it meets the needs of different industries and geographies before expanding to more devices and services as it ramps up in 2024.
Alexa Van Den Bempt, senior vice president, digital business platforms, tech foundations, Atos, said: “I am very excited about this new offering. Not only will it help meet our clients’ monitoring and reporting needs but we are also taking major strides towards making decarbonization more compelling, empowering employees to make the right choices for our planet.”
