Saving the Planet

Citizen of the Planet (COTP) is Teleperformance’s global environmental initiative dedicated to minimizing negative environmental impacts. Established in 2008, the key focus of COTP is to track and reduce our overall carbon footprint per employee on a worldwide basis by cutting down energy consumption, paper use and solid waste generation, air travel, and water use. Through awareness programs, practices, and collaborative campaigns, we are able to encourage our people to do their share in protecting the planet.

In 2017, our global COTP efforts have certainly been monumental. In line with our collective desire to help the environment, Teleperformance in India encouraged its employees to celebrate a “Green Diwali” in protest of the use of firecrackers and air pollutants during the Diwali celebration. And every year on World Environment Day, Teleperformance in India has taken on the challenge of spreading awareness against environmental abuse. In Albania, more and more young people are using bicycles. This prompted Teleperformance, in collaboration with Ecovadis (an environmental organization that raises awareness for environmental protection), to create 60 parking spots for bicycles. In China, our Beijing, Xi’an, and Nanning sites held a tree plant planting activity that was attended by 155 volunteers. Teleperformance in China also promoted Earth Hour across all sites nationwide, teaching employees about energy conservation and emission reduction. Earth Hour is a global environmental movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. Also supportive of the Earth Hour is Teleperformance in Egypt, where 515 employees participated this year. Meanwhile, Teleperformance in Colombia volunteers went to a forest reserve to planted native species of trees and contribute to reforestation. They also had the opportunity to learn about the importance of nature and forest preservation. In Costa Rica, our Teleperformance volunteers banded together to clean up a local beach, collecting more than 10 garbage bags full of trash.

We have had many more COTP programs all over the world that have received tremendous support from our people. Their participation is definitely a reflection of our commitment to making the world a better place.
