Our objectives

Dassault Systèmes’ climate commitments

In July 2021, Dassault Systèmes announced our alignment with the Science-based Targets initiative to help meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and support the global response to the threat of climate change to keep global warming below 1.5°C.

  • In 2021, Dassault Systèmes joined the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We are aligned with the pathway of temperature limitation to 1.5‑degree (Scopes 1 and 2) and with the implementation of current best practices with regards to sustainability matters (Scope 3).
  • At year-end 2022, Dassault Systèmes has resubmitted its emissions reduction pathway to SBTi in order to include the acquisition of Medidata Solutions  Inc., which was finalized at the end of 2019. This 2022 resubmission has been approved in 2023.
  • The Company has also included new sources of emissions in the reporting, such as cab rides and hotels, and it has improved several estimation methodologies, particularly the use of more precise monetary emission factors, allocated to purchase amounts of goods and services.
  • These new factors provide a more comprehensive and accurate overview of the impact on climate change.

What are the Science-Based Targets scopes?

Scope 1

Direct emissions by an organization,
e.g. from burning fuels such as natural gas or petrol to fuel company cars.

Scope 2

Indirect emissions from purchased electricity, cooling, heat or steam.

Scope 3

All other indirect emissions (i.e. not included in Scope 2) that occur in the value chain, e.g. from the use of sold products and services, business travel or waste disposal.
