SCOPE OF THE CARBON REVIEW In 2019, a working group comprising representatives of Groupe BPCE entities, overseen by the Group CSR & Sustainable Development division and Carbone 4, was tasked with optimizing the indicators used in the carbon review. All the indicators were reviewed to pinpoint those with an insignificant impact, those which are difficult to obtain and those offering little scope for action. The conclusions led to the removal of 25 indicators covering procurement, fixed assets, transport, customer/visitor travel and refrigerants, representing 10.81% of the Group’s total carbon emissions in 2018. Following this change, Groupe BPCE’s carbon review for 2018 and 2017 was recalculated to cover the same scope. This review was also used to recalculate data from previous years (2018 and 2017), using the same scope of consolidation as in 2019. DIFFICULTIES AND LIMITATIONS It is difficult to analyze and interpret the data owing to the large number of information systems in use within Groupe BPCE. The reporting scopes vary according to the type of data (human resources, environmental, societal or business data).
