Paper purchased per employee (kg/employee) 0.51 In 2021, the scope used to calculate indicators includes all entities over which the Group has operational control (and therefore includes the NHS SBS, SSCL and SFT joint ventures) as well as the employees of the acquisitions made up until and including November 2021, particularly those of Luminosity Limited, Sopra Steria Financial Services and Labs. The workforces of our acquisitions in December 2021 (EGGS Design and EVA Group) are not included. Joint ventures are only included from 2017. In 2020, the scope used to calculate indicators includes all entities over which the Group has operational control (and therefore includes the NHS SBS, SSCL and SFT joint ventures) as well as new acquisitions Sodifrance, Anteo (Consulting and E-Business Solutions), Holocare and cxpartners. In 2019, the scope used to calculate indicators includes all entities over which the Group has operational control (and therefore includes the NHS SBS and SSCL joint ventures) but does not include SAB or Sopra Financial Technology GmbH. *These data account for the change in methodology in the UK. Under the former methodology, paper and cardboard waste would have amounted to 150,663 kg in 2021. 3.00 2.40 0.90
Encourage our supply chain to control its environmental footprint Sopra Steria has implemented a programme to raise awareness among its suppliers and partners and encourage them to reduce their environmental impact. This programme is based on the Group Suppliers’ Charter, which reminds suppliers and partners that they undertake to: Reduce the environmental impact of their sites, products, • services and activities as well as contribute to achieving the associated greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets; Prevent pollution resulting from their activities; • Contribute to achieving a net-zero emissions economy; • Protect natural resources and biodiversity; • Manage risks arising from the use of chemicals and hazardous • materials; Promote the circular economy, minimise and manage waste • and maximise recycling. By managing and measuring the environmental footprint of its purchases of goods and services, Sopra Steria is contributing to the achievement of the SBTi’s targets.
In 2021, we measured the entire share (100%) of our suppliers accounting for 70% of our supply chain emissions. The Group continued to assess its suppliers via the Provigis, EcoVadis and CDP platforms. While monitoring its SBTi Targets IV and V, Sopra Steria observed that 55% of suppliers accounting for 70% of supply chain emissions are controlling their GHG emissions and have set emissions reduction targets. The Group conducted more testing in 2021 to obtain a moderate level of assurance, validated by the independent third party, covering analysis of the Group’s residual data. The scope was extended from four countries in 2020 (France, Germany, Italy and Spain) to all the Group’s countries in 2021. With this approach, we were able to estimate the total residual greenhouse gas emissions linked to the Group’s purchasing at 259,011 tCO 2 e in 2021 using the factor method recommended by ADEME. These emissions increased by 37% compared with 2020 as a result of more accurate data and significant expansion in the scope of our study. The objective is to continue expanding the Group’s supplier evaluation programme and to encourage suppliers to set targets for reducing their emissions by 2025. A programme providing training for the Group’s buyers and raising our suppliers’ awareness will be introduced in 2022.
