11 Nov, Singapore. Atos, an international leader in digital services and its Singapore-based employees took to the streets of Toa Payoh, and helped clean up the neighbourhood. This inaugural initiative called ‘Unlitter Red Dot’, was held to demonstrate the company’s commitment to the environment and sustainability, and was led by its senior stakeholders in Singapore.
‘Unlitter Red Dot’ was a timely follow-up to Atos’ recent entry into the global 2016 Climate A List with the best score in climate performance awarded by the CDP, an independent organization based in the United Kingdom which works with shareholders and corporations to disclose the greenhouse gas emissions of major corporations. To date, less than 200 companies have made it to the Climate A List worldwide. Atos is one of the 9% to be awarded an “A” grade for its performance in combating climate change.
Mr Goh See Wee, Managing Director said, “Atos has been operating in Toa Payoh for several years, and relocated to our current address in Toa Payoh North two years ago. Since then we have enjoyed the unique flavours of this mature estate. With our recent entry into the 2016 Climate A List, there is no better time than now to take action, and reinforce Atos’ commitment to the environment we operate in and support a clean space.”
“Sustainability is at the core of Atos’ corporate strategy and ambition. We are proud to have consistently fulfilled the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) of application level A+ for its Corporate Responsibility Report. We view ‘Unlitter Red Dot’ as a gesture that will help build pride and commitment amongst our employees for the environment, and a step in the right direction towards our global commitment,” added Violet Chua, VP HR for Atos in APAC.
A team of 30 employees set off on the afternoon of 4 November to pick up trash, remove stagnant water and meet with the friendly local residents in the neighbourhood.
