To respond to the climate emergency, we have decided, in 2021, to formalise and accelerate a long-standing commitment to the energy transition. We have defined a voluntary GHG reduction trajectory, as illustrated below:

1st step : measure

Carbon Footprint assessment on a Group level

Our carbon footprint assessment is carried out annually on our main business units and certified by a Third Party Organization.

2nd step : commit

A voluntary carbon trajectory within a scientific framework

In line with the Paris Climate Agreements, the goals stated allow us to contribute to the limitation of global warming to the ambitious target of 1,5°C.

What is the Science-based targets initiative ?

Jointly supported by the United Nations Global Compact, the Carbon Disclosure Project (the carbon assessor to which we have been responding since 2020), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), this initiative promotes the implementation of ambitious climate trajectories. It is a guarantee of the rigor and credibility of our carbon trajectory, as each file is submitted to a committee of scientific experts for validation. The certification of our trajectory is underway.

Our main actions

Energetic performance of our branches

Renovation of our buildings enhancing their energetic performance – Deployment of LED lighting, and timing systems – Adaptation of electric infrastructures

Use of renewable energies

Since January 1, 2022, 100% of our branches in France are supplied with gas (biomethane) and electricity from renewable sources

Optimization of our transport logistics

Territorial coverage (over 1,000 branches worldwide) - Pooling of routes via regional logistics centres – Awareness-rising for our subcontractors

Conversion of our fleet of vehicles

Introduction of electric and hybrid rechargeable vehicles – Introduction of a gas truck

Investments in low-emission equipment

25% of our CAPEX in 2022 directed towards low-emission equipment – Group target 2025: 50%.
To note : 98% of our CAPEX in diesel equipment in 2022 are compliant stage V.
