MSCI ESG Research provides ratings on global public and selected private companies on a scale from AAA (leader) to CCC (laggard), based on exposure to industry-specific ESG risks and the ability to manage those risks relative to peers. These insights help institutional investors identify risks and opportunities that traditional investment research may overlook. The MSCI ESG Ratings are also used in the construction of the MSCI ESG Indexes.

Atos also holds a leading position in the IT sector on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), has been included in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook every year since 2016, received a Platinum Award from EcoVadis, and holds Prime status in the ESG assessment by ISS, among other recognitions.
