Steria's Exemplary Commitment to Sustainability again Recognised by Carbon Disclosure Project
Steria, a leading provider of IT-enabled business services, is pleased to announce that it has again achieved one of the top scores for its sector in France from the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). CDP is a non-profit organisation that evaluates the commitment of the world’s largest corporations to tackle climate change and support a more sustainable world

Recognised with a disclosure score of 89/100 in 2010, Steria's performance improved yet again this year with a score of 93/100 and a carbon performance band of A- compared to a global average of 69/100 and C.

In recent years, Steria has focused its efforts on monitoring and reducing carbon emissions and promoting energy efficiency both at a company level and for individual employees.

Steria recently opened environmentally-friendly offices in both France and Sweden. The Steria France ‘Green Office' generates more energy than it uses, and was awarded the ‘Best Green Workplace Award' earlier this year by French national TV and radio station BFM. In Stockholm, the Steria Sweden office takes advantage of the excess energy created by the city's central railway station to provide heating for the building. In an effort to limit its environmental impact, Steria has been certified CarbonNeutral® for flight and fleet business travel since January 2010.

As well as being an integral part of Steria's corporate responsibility programme, Steria's commitment to sustainability is also one of its strategic business areas. Steria solutions such as Smart Energy Management and Intelligent Transport are aimed at helping clients address their sustainability issues, which can have a positive effect on both business performance and stakeholder relationships.

François Enaud, General Manager and Group CEO of Steria, said, "Steria's scores from the Carbon Disclosure Project are encouraging. It confirms that by managing, disclosing reducing our own carbon output and providing clients with tangible, practical solutions to their own sustainability challenges, we are taking the right steps to protect the environment. Social responsibility is a core element of our corporate strategy, along with our strong conviction that human values and economic performance are intrinsically bound together."

Paul Simpson, chief executive officer of the Carbon Disclosure Project, commented: "Companies that achieve top scores from the Carbon Disclosure Project are demonstrating good internal data management practices for understanding greenhouse gas emissions. They have shown a strong awareness of the business issues related to climate change including climate-related risks and opportunities. Those organisations that give clear consideration to measuring and reporting on climate change issues will be best placed to capitalise on the opportunities from managing them."
