Hermès // 2021 Universal Registration Document



490.1 k tonnes of CO2eq for scope 3, which essentially takes into s account the carbon footprint of raw materials (62% of scope 3) as well as all purchases, fixed assets, waste, subcontracting, packaging, transport of products and employee travel. Upstream and downstream transport (categories 4 and 9) represent 14% of the total scope 3. In 2021, scope 3 of the GHG assessment underwent work on improving the scope with the SBTi, input data and an update of emission factors using internationally recognised baselines and increasingly accurate calculations. The changes in scope 3 reflect the strong upturn in activity. With a reduction of -44.8% in three years, the Group is in line with its reduction targets for 2030.

These figures confirm the merits of a low-environmental-footprint French craftsmanship model: with a carbon intensity of 82.4 (all scopes), Hermès is ranked as one of the least carbon-intensive companies of the CAC 40, based on a full scope 3. The decoupling between business growth and the Group’s footprint is -44.8% in three years.
