Worldline - 2020 Universal Registration Document


EXTRA-FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF PERFORMANCE Reducing our environmental footprint

Since 2010, Worldline has been implementing a global energy-efficient management of its data centres (which complies with the European Code of Conduct for Data Centres) to optimise energy consumption. Since 2016, other policies and actions mentioned above and hereafter –such as

the eco-design of its payment terminals- have structured a more holistic and comprehensive approach towards a Green IT initiative with greater reach which includes the following



2020 achievements

Strategic programmes

Reduce Worldline’s carbon intensity each year by 2.67% in alignment with Worldline Science-Based Targets to reduce its CO 2 emissions (scope 1+2+3A) by 19% in 2025 and by 45% in 2035 (baseline 2018). Certify ISO 14001 all its own strategic Data Centres and offices above 500 people. Obtain an average PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of 1.65 by 2020 for its own data centres. Supply 100% of Worldline Group electricity consumption with renewable energies. Continue to offset 100% of the remaining CO 2 emissions resulting from its activities (data centres, offices and business travels) and CO 2 emissions linked to its payment terminals lifecycle.

In 2020, Worldline’s CO 2 emissions (scope 1+2+3A) have decreased from 11,461 tons in 2019 to 8,626 tons in 2020 (refer to Section D.5.2.3). This significant decrease is mainly due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 15 out of the 15 targeted sites are certified.

Worldline energy efficiency programme, renewable energy programme, building environmental improvement plan and sustainable mobility programme

All programs and initiatives relating to circular economy

Worldline energy efficiency programme

The PUE of Worldline data centres is 1.65 (refer to Section D.

Worldline renewable energy programme

92% of Worldline total electricity consumption comes from renewable energy sources (refer to Section D. 100% of Worldline CO 2 emissions resulting from its activities (data centres, offices and business travels) and CO 2 emissions linked to its payment terminals lifecycle are offset (refer to Section D.

Worldline offsetting programme

This overall commitment is consistent with Worldline’s adhesion to the City of Paris climate charter “Paris Action Climat” in 2018, as well as with the Company’s commitment to the French business Climate Pledge in 2019. The GreenIT@worldline initiative launched in 2018 commits Worldline to a more comprehensive scope of intervention, not only taking into account its energy efficiency and CO 2 emissions but also the circular economy dimension through a transversal approach that involves all employees, especially departments such as Research, Development & Innovation, procurement and business, thus adding new expectations relating to the eco-conception of ICT services. The start of this initiative was concurrent with Worldline’s participation to the WeGreen IT study initiated by WWF France and the club Green IT which aimed at better assessing the environmental footprint of its IT system and gather good practices, notably regarding eco-conception of digital solutions. This study covered the following areas: responsible purchasing, duration and life of equipment, data centres management, environmental governance, workstation, telephony, printing, training and awareness, software and digital services eco-design. If Worldline’s results indicated a global maturity of the Company (score of 70% vs. an average of 59% out of the 24 participating major French companies), further areas for improvement has been identified such as adopting eco-design practices in the software development. In this regard, Worldline has a

dedicated working group on software eco-design best practices gathering the Research, Development & Innovation department, the Expert community and the CSR team. In 2019, this group focused on the preparation of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of a payment transaction to better identify further areas of improvement (for more details, refer to this document, Section D. On an external level, Worldline has also joined, since 2018, the Green IT think tank (Conception Numérique Responsable) which brings together experts and organisations to develop IT eco-design. In 2020, as its next environmental step, Worldline obtained a A- rating (refer to this document Section D.1.3.2), which recognised its ambitious environmental policy and achievements. As part of this exercise, Worldline has taken the opportunity to reconsider and develop its climate strategy by identifying its main climate risks and opportunities and measuring their financial impact to better focus and address the relevant actions to implement. Moreover, Worldline has set and validated its own Science-Based Targets (baseline 2018) to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a pace that meets the well below 2-degree trajectory requirements.
