For a sustainable planet

Our planet is threatened by the disruption of natural balances and by accelerated global warming, leading to human, environmental and economic consequences.

At oXya, we believe that economic growth and sustainable development go hand in hand. We further believe that sustainable development is a great opportunity for us to be a responsible, visible and committed player. Our goal: to pass a prosperous planet to future generations.

Sustainable development policy

“We want to perform our business while taking into account the impact on the environment and on our employees. We aim to reduce our energy consumption and carbon footprint, use more renewable energy and respect natural resources and people”, says Frédéric de Belloy, Chairman of the Board and President of oXya.

Our policy is in line with that of Hitachi Group, which since its foundation over 100 years ago, has been focused on delivering products and services that meet the societal challenges of our time. As such, sustainability is at the core of the Group’s identity and is inherent in the way we do business, as well as the products and services provided by all Hitachi subsidiaries.

As an SAP Managed Cloud Service Provider, oXya takes a Green IT approach and focuses on an efficient use of energy. We aim to reduce the carbon footprint resulting from our activities, and to limit the use of natural resources.

Energy audits and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Balance assessments provide us with concrete elements to guide our action plans. oXya’s last Greenhouse Gas Emissions Balance check was conducted in December 2020, and we’ve already started taking action per recommendations for improvement from that report.

Over the last few years we have seen a 10% reduction in power consumption across all our data centers.
