Environmental protection

EOS supports the Otto Group's climate protection strategy that pursues the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. Together we work on implementing targeted measures.

Reduction of Environmental Footprint: Our contribution to climate protection

Together with the Otto Group, EOS is working on reducing emissions to net zero in the long run. The Otto Group is currently developing a science-based climate goal (based on the Science Based Targets Initiative, SBTi). The joint climate protection strategy is to fully comply with the 1.5-degree Celsius goal of the Paris Agreement. Our original goal of climate neutrality in our own core processes by 2030 is being considered in the development of the strategy and will be part of the future SBT.

Projects for the environment

Thanks to a collaboration with provider atmosfair, EOS has been offsetting its CO2 emissions for business trips since 2021. This supports the climate protection project “Small biogas plants in Nepal”.

Moreover, in 2022 and 2023, employees across the group were asked to report on their commitment to sustainability. To thank them, the EOS Group has planted 1,000 trees to date in collaboration with Bergwaldprojekt e.V.

EOS France Reforestation Project

Between 2022 et 2023, EOS France planted 603 trees in France!

Each quarter, EOS France plants trees for every tenured employee and every employee whose time with the company reaches a multiple of five years. This project has both a social and environmental purpose; it seeks to recognise the teams at EOS France and to support the environment as part of a concrete local project.

Greenhouse gas assessment

Each year, EOS France assesses its greenhouse gas emissions for all its activities across all six sites: Paris, Lille, Nantes, Lons, Ebene (Mauritius) and Papeete (Tahiti).

This assessment includes all GHG emissions (scopes 1, 2 and 3):

  • Direct emissions
  • Significant indirect emissions: energy, transport and purchased products
In 2022, EOS France's carbon footprint amounts to 7,391 tons CO₂ equivalent
Green energy solutions on Earth, nurtured by CSR commitment, create a vibrant, sustainable world of environmental consciousness.

External green datacenter

EOS France moved its servers to an external green data centre located close to Lille, in northern France. This cheaper and greener solution uses only a third of the energy that conventional hosting would. The data centre itself was built using materials and devices that consume less energy. Its more northerly location gives it an average local temperature of 14°C, which is an ideal climate for sustainable use.
