Atea green frontrunner in the Nordics

Atea reaches milestone as they enter top15 of the Nordic Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index.

In the newly released annual Nordic Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index Atea has scored 84 out of 100. This ranks Atea in the top15, as number 13 out of a total of 260 Nordic companies, and number 2 within the IT sector. The index creates an overview of the organizations' carbon emissions and ability to measure and disclose this information, water use and climate change strategies.

 

"We are very proud to be included amongst the top 15 companies in the Nordic carbon disclosure leadership index as it is a testament to our ongoing efforts in reducing our carbon footprint. Back in 2007 we realized that we were no longer able to change the situation, instead we were challenged to change ourselves. We therefore developed an ambitious climate strategy for Atea and integrated it into our core business strategy and operations," says president & CEO Claus Hougesen, Atea ASA.

 

As part of Atea's climate strategy, the environmental management system ISO 14001 has been implemented and a carbon reduction plan was introduced, which included a 25 % reduction of CO2 -emissions per employee by 2015 compared with 2007 figures.

 

"For the past four years we have successfully managed to reduce our emissions by 15 %, which is over halfway to our 2015 target. From a financial perspective, we have generated savings of over MNOK 31 by reducing our emissions. We still have room to improve, and we are on the right path as thinking and acting green has become part of our DNA today," says Claus Hougesen.

 

As the leading Nordic and Baltic supplier of IT-infrastructure and services, green IT is a high priority for Atea as well as for its customers, which is why Atea has several green IT concepts (goITloop and goITgreen) to help ease the process for the customers.
