Our responsibility is to run a successful business and take action to protect and benefit our planet. Mitigating negative environmental impacts and ensuring a better future for the next generation is one of our main goals. In the light of our goal to get Net-Zero Carbon by 2040, Teleperformance has set new greenhouse gas emission reduction targets; to reduce Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 49% per FTE, scope 3 carbon emissions from the purchased goods and services, and employee commuting by 38% per FTE, by 2026 from a 2019 base year.
In Greece, Teleperformance takes a comprehensive approach to sustainability in its buildings through various sustainable practices, such as energy management and materials and waste minimization. Furthermore, we run employee awareness campaigns all year round, organize clean-up and tree-planting actions, and actively promote biodiversity protection.
As a responsible corporate entity, we take actions to contribute to reforestation processes to repair damaged ecosystems. Through our concerted efforts, we aim at restoring the health of our planet, while fostering a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come. To reach this goal, we have planted over 2,000 trees in Attica in the past two years. Every single tree we plant is a symbol of our dedication to reduce climate change and create a lasting legacy that future generations can enjoy and benefit from.
The Earth is not just a planet we live on, it is our home. As advocates of environmental sustainability, we work together with organizations to protect our planet and all its inhabitants. In this context, we organize public awareness initiatives and educational activities to conserve the magnificence and diversity of planet Earth.
Biodiversity is the foundation of life on this planet, and our biodiversity protection initiatives are a testament to our commitment to preserving all the different kinds of life. Through proactive measures, such as safeguarding endangered species, conserving precious natural resources, and promoting sustainable practices, we are working towards ensuring a healthy, vibrant and thriving planet.
We are constantly adopting best practices to create buildings that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also energy-efficient, water-conserving, and healthy for occupants. These efforts have led to the achievement of Gold LEED Certification for four of our buildings. Our environmentally friendly Green Buildings reflect our commitment to sustainability, while they create a built environment that is both high-performing and socially responsible.
