Climate Change

As a business, Arabesque is strongly committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions and has taken action to realise this ambition. We fully support the “well below 2 degrees Celsius” goal set out by the Paris Agreement and encourage reporting in line with the Task Force for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) principles.

Following the Paris Agreement milestone, Arabesque S-Ray launched the Temperature Score. This unique metric evaluates a company’s contribution to the climate crisis and ultimately boost data disclosure and transparency.

At Arabesque, we are constantly focused on improving the assessment of climate-related risks and we have developed a wide set of products to support our clients.

Environmental Commitment

With respect to the environment and the impact of our actions, Arabesque is committed to a series of firm goals in 2020. As a Group, we are aligned with action to keep global temperature well below 2 degrees Celsius, in accordance with the aims of the Paris Agreement, and are fully supportive of the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development. In 2020, Arabesque S-Ray set a target with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), committing to an emissions reduction in line with a well-below 2 degrees Celsius pathway.

Our targets are recognized on the Science Based Targets initiative website as well as its partners’ websites at CDP and We Mean Business.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on how and where we work, making us all take a step back to acknowledge and review our impact on the world. We recognise however that the climate crisis continues and action on climate change must not stop. Therefore, in 2020 we supported the UNGC ‘Recover Better’ initiative, focused on ensuring a sustainable recovery from the global pandemic.
