Long-established French geoscience and technology company CGG has announced its rebranding as Viridien, marking a strategic shift for the company as it exits data collection and focuses on high-growth areas such as high-performance computing (HPC) and AI solutions.

The new brand name is the latest part of a strategy announced in 2018 to efficiently and responsibly solve its customers’ complex challenges in the areas of natural resources, digitalization, energy transition and infrastructure. It pays homage to Viridien’s 93-year history and its French roots, combining the Latin words viridis (green, lush) and -ien (coming from). The blue and green colors of the new logo, the company says, represent its geoscientific DNA and commitment to the environment.

“This momentous occasion marks a turning point in our history, connecting our 90+ year history as CGG with our forward-looking development as Viridien,” comments Sophie Zurquiyah, CEO of Viridien. “The transformative changes we are experiencing across society, driven by rising energy demands, a growing commitment to protecting our planet and the increasing possibilities of our digital age, bring challenges and opportunities that make our technology, data and expertise more relevant than ever.”
