During the biennial aviation show at Le Bourget Airport in Paris, L&T Technology Services and Thales agreed to significantly reduce their carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption: within their supply chain; in their business process; and by their customers, and in line with the Paris Climate Agreement. To this end, L&T Technology Services supports Thales with eco-friendly EU Ecodesign in the product development process; with smart traffic management for Thales customers - on land, at sea and in the air; and with reducing Thales´ own carbon footprint.
Thales is working with its strategic suppliers and L&T Technology Services to meet its carbon emission reduction targets. These have been validated by the SBTi Science Based Targets initiative, consistent with Paris Climate Agreement, and include:
50 % reduction in carbon dioxide emissions in the business process by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2040 (target 1)
50 % reduction in energy consumption in the business process by 2030 (goal 2)
15 % reduction in carbon dioxide emissions in the supply chain and by its customers by 2030 (goal 3)
LTTS' sustainability practice provides R&D services for technology companies and innovative digital solutions that help customers achieve their sustainability roadmap. In 2021, LTTS designated sustainability as a spearhead and came up with its own a roadmap to be carbon and water consumption neutral by 2030.
LTTS will support Thales in offering services and solutions to end customers in the area of smart traffic management in the air, sea and road to optimise their operations and carbon footprint, as well as implementing ecodesign principles in the product development process. In addition, LTTS will help Thales reduce its digital carbon footprint.
Thales is the global technology leader in defence, aerospace and secure digital identities. India-based L&T Technology Services (LTTS), is the world's leading R&D service provider for technology companies, with European clients such as Airbus and BMW.
