Keeping future generations in mind
Since 2008, our Citizen of the Planet (COTP) initiative has ensured that we operate in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner.
An early advocate for climate change action, Teleperformance remains reducing our environmental impact by adopting measures that will better prepare us for a carbon-constrained world.
Raising environmental awareness is a fundamental part of our actions
Teleperformance participates in the call for urgent action to combat climate change and its impact on the planet.
Our carbon reduction targets
We have set carbon reduction targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We have committed to reduce Scope 1 (direct emissions from owned or controlled sources) and Scope 2 (indirect emissions from the power generation) GHG emissions by 49% per FTE by 2026 from a 2019 base year. We have also pledged to reduce scope 3 carbon emissions from purchased goods and services, and employee commuting by 38% per FTE by 2026 from a 2019 base year.
Commitments made on behalf of the planet
Science Based Targets
Teleperformance opted to step up its own climate objectives by committing to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which involves adopting a greenhouse gas emissions target in accordance with the Paris agreement. Through this commitment, Teleperformance is seeking to increase its resilience and readiness for a carbon-constrained world.
See our SBTi certificate.
The Climate Pledge
Teleperformance was one of the first 100 signatories to join the @ClimatePledge — a drive to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 — a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s 2050 goal, by commiting to: report greenhouse gas emissions regularly; implement decarbonization strategies; and neutralize remaining carbon emissions with quantifiable, socially beneficial offsets.
Supporting our clients’ sustainability goals
We partner with our clients to achieve their environmental sustainability goals across all business functions through the use of digital technologies. Our Cloud Campus work-at-home model supports our clients' sustainability goals by reducing the number of commercial facilities and eliminating daily commutes for 70% of our global workforce, benefiting all regions of the world.
World Cleanup Day: Employee awareness
Teleperformance also encourages sustainable practices among its employees and suppliers to reduce the global carbon footprint. The support and enthusiasm of our people are essential to reach these environmental goals. Each year, Teleperformance employees participate into various environmental campaigns and awareness activities around the world such as the World Cleanup Day movement by cleaning up the waste on beaches, rivers, and streets in our communities.
