Dassault Systèmes has endorsed the Action Declaration on Climate Policy Engagement, which was launched by Corporate Knights and the Global 100 Council at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
The Action Declaration brings together corporate leaders who are committed to improving public–private policy engagement to move the world to the clean economy needed to address climate change. Already, the initiative has garnered the support of over 50 global companies (representing close to US$1 trillion in revenues) that are strongly committed to ensuring that their climate policy engagement, and that of their industry associations, are in line with the Paris Agreement.
Corporate Knights primarily invited companies previously included in its Global 100 Most Sustainable Companies and Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada rankings to sign the Declaration. Dassault Systèmes, which figures annually in this ranking, places sustainability at the heart of its purpose to harmonize product, nature and life. Its virtual worlds transform how companies create the innovations needed to reinvent a sustainable economy in life sciences and healthcare, infrastructure and cities, and manufacturing.
“At Dassault Systèmes, we are committed to building a more sustainable tomorrow. We are proud of our contribution towards the ambitious 1.5°C target, both in our commitment to science-based emissions reduction targets in our operations, and through the solutions that we offer to support decarbonization, resilience and resource optimization for the industries that we serve,” said Florence Verzelen, Executive Vice President, Industry, Marketing and Sustainability, Dassault Systèmes. “By endorsing the Action Declaration on Climate Policy Engagement, we aim to take this ambition further and commit to championing the Paris Agreement objectives in our policy engagements and within our industry associations.”
