Press release 2022-12-21

Oslo, 21 December 2022 — Atea today announced that the company has earned a Leadership Band placement among global companies analyzed by the CDP, a non-profit organization that runs the world’s leading environmental disclosure platform.

Atea received an A- rating in CDP’s annual climate change questionnaire, which can be compared to the Europe regional average of B, and the IT & software development sector average of C. This marks a new personal best for our company since first reporting to CDP over ten years ago.

CDP's disclosure and scoring process is widely recognized as the gold standard of corporate environmental transparency. In 2022, Atea is recognized for its strong performance in addressing climate change.

“We are pleased to receive this important recognition from CDP,” said Robert Giori, Atea’s CFO. “We have a long history of focusing on sustainability and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact. This score reaffirms that our continuous improvements keep us on the path to lasting, positive change.”

Atea has disclosed information regarding ongoing efforts addressing climate change through CDP since 2010. Atea has had a group Climate Policy in place for several years and was one of the first companies globally to set a Science Based Target, verified by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI).
