*Our initial objective, as published in our ESG Policy in 2021, was to become net zero well ahead of 2050. Since then, we have refined our net zero targets in line with the Science Based Target initiative’s (SBTi ) new Corporate Net-Zero Standard. Capgemini’s refined net zero targets have been assessed by the SBTi and were approved in July 2022. Our new net zero headline target is to achieve a 90% reduction in carbon emissions across Scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 2040, compared to a baseline of 2019.
