T-Systems Iberia, S.A.U.
The greatest contribution T-Systems Iberia has made is its creation of the Syrah solution. This is a platform to help our public and private customers, and ourselves understand how they are achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda. This solution uses data to measure milestones on the journey to reaching this status. I am particularly proud of this achievement. The Iberia Team has worked together with customers to create an efficient tool designed to help them master the enormous sustainability and energy efficiency challenges that lie ahead.
Moreover, T-Systems Iberia is naturally also pursuing the group's principles of sustainability and neutral emissions. Since last year, we have only been using renewable energy and we are working to increase the energy efficiency of our facilities, from our datacenters to the company’s headquarters. Furthermore, we have announced the creation of a new headquarters in Spain. This will be a fully digitalized building with designed-in sustainability where we can boost our creativity and continue creating technological solutions that help our customers to grow and become more sustainable.

This initiative is led by Facility Management and was developed at T-Systems Iberia with the primary aim of reducing energy consumption at the Barcelona Headquarters and the Madrid Office. The integrated project was included in the Environmental Management Program 2022. A plan is in place for the Barcelona Headquarters to move to a new Smart Building Headquarters. This includes home-office work and gradual closure of facilities. “We Work New” activities are planned for the Madrid Office (new office model, space optimization and reduction of occupation; decrease in square meters required for occupation area).
The goal in the Barcelona Headquarters: reduction in consumption (compared with 2019) related to:
- Electricity: 39 percent
- District cooling: 32 percent
