GENEVA, Switzerland – FEBRUARY 13, 2024 – Temenos (SIX: TEMN) has been recognized again as a global sustainability leader according to the most reputable ESG ratings. Temenos achieved the top score in the Software industry for the second year running in the 2023 Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) and was the only company in the industry awarded top 1% distinction in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook for 2024. Temenos was also classified as low risk in Sustainalytics ESG Risk Rating Report, while retained its platinum medal by EcoVadis for its sustainability performance.

These latest achievements reflect Temenos’ commitment to sustainability as the company leads the transition to SaaS, with more than 700 clients on Temenos Banking Cloud, helping banks reduce their carbon emissions up to 95% compared to using on-premise IT infrastructure.

Banking is an IT intensive sector, and the dependence is increasing with pressure to deliver new digital offerings, process growing transaction volumes, leverage new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and maintain vast data repositories. By migrating banking operations to the cloud and SaaS, banks can significantly reduce their environmental impact and operate in a more sustainable manner.

Temenos’ new end-to-end SaaS Enterprise Services, enabling banks to quickly deploy software solutions and take advantage of a leaner, agile and more efficient banking system, is a further step towards decarbonizing the banking industry. Temenos recently announced Leap, a new AI-powered offering that helps banks modernize faster and to seamlessly and quickly move to the latest cloud-native Temenos technology.

Temenos also continues to improve the efficiency of its code to minimize its environmental impact, by 32% in the latest software release validated by GoCodeGreen.
