Atos boosts sustainability collaboration with AWS

Atos is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) on a portfolio of solutions built on AWS under the Atos MyCo2Compass umbrella. The Atos MyCO2Compass carbon calculator is the first solution to be developed as part of a multi-year relationship between AWS and Atos, which will enable the effective measurement and management of carbon emissions across IT and business landscapes such as housing, fleet, travel and workforce.

To help businesses take action now Atos guides their journey to decarbonisation in a two-step approach: first, by migrating their IT workloads to AWS where they could experience an 80%-90%3 reduction in carbon produced in their IT infrastructure operation; and then, by leveraging AWS capabilities to accelerate and innovate their digital transformation to support their zero emission objective. To aid customers in this journey, the Atos Digital Decarbonisation Assessment (DDA) can help analyse the business’ level of maturity on decarbonization for the entire scope of IT.

Diane Galbe, Senior Executive Vice President, Atos said: “This increased collaboration will help customers accelerate their journeys to net zero.
