The SBTi ( Science-based Targets Initiative ) validated Eiffage’s short-term emissions reduction targets, considered to be consistent with the levels required to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the 1.5°C trajectory.
Each Eiffage business line is committed, in France and internationally, to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions in order to reduce the Group’s emissions by:
- – 46% on scopes 1 and 2 by 2030 compared to a reference year of 2019
- – 30% on scope 3 upstream and downstream (direct emissions) by 2030 compared to a reference year of 2019.
A key step in achieving the Group’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction objectives, validation by the SBTi took place after an audit process which made it possible to approve the Group’s overall emissions benchmark and the trajectory of associated emissions reduction.
Eiffage has been committed to reducing its emissions for many years and has implemented a low-carbon strategy in all its businesses since 2016, focused on:
- Reducing its internal footprint (scopes 1 and 2): by working to reduce all its energy consumption on its sites and construction sites but also by investing in less carbon-intensive equipment, machines and vehicle fleets.
- The development of low-carbon offers : by making a difference by creating alternative offers, integrating low-carbon materials, renewable energy production, energy-efficient buildings, reuse and recycling, Eiffage works with all its value chain to decarbonize the act of building. This collaboration with its partners and suppliers contributes to reducing its scope 3.
Low carbon action plans are developed for each business line and contribute to the Group’s transition plan. The validation of the short-term objectives (2030) also marks a first milestone before the establishment of a longer-term trajectory in order to achieve “net-zero” by 2050, an objective on which the Group is also engaged.
Through these short-term objectives and the associated transition plan, Eiffage contributes to commitments to reduce French and European greenhouse gas emissions and anticipates the new CSRD directive on the publication of sustainability information by companies ( Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive).
