CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY Environmental responsibility: Innovating for the environment throughout our value chain

5. Promote the circular economy

TARGET: Extend on-site selective sorting, increase waste recovery, maximise the life cycle of resources and prevent pollution

Key Performance Indicators and other performance indicators 2018 2017

Key achievements


WEEE (kg per employee)

p WEEE (6) Maximisation of the life cycle of electronic equipment: resale or donation of equipment no longer required; repair of hardware where appropriate; dismantling of end-of- life equipment for recovery of materials. WEEE in India (relamping and battery changes) and the UK (destocking) increased during 2018

6. Involve our entire value chain


p Work with major suppliers committed to the environment: Ensure that the Group’s leading suppliers, accounting for at least 70% of supply chain emissions, control their GHG emissions, and that 90% of them have set GHG emissions reduction targets (target validated by SBTi)

p Pursue a responsible purchasing policy favouring products and services with a low environmental impact

p Raise awareness among our stakeholders and contribute to the work of influencers

p Analysis of the environmental footprint of Group expenditure

• A limited assurance audit found that purchases in France generated 89,000 tCO 2 e of GHG emissions, using ADEME emissions factors (7) • On the basis of data for France (which represents 40.1% of Group data) scaled up proportionately, the total emissions linked to Group expenditure were then estimated at 230,005 tCO 2 e. In 2017, this figure, calculated using the GHG Quantis method, put total Group emissions at 198,000 tCO 2 e. By 2025, our aim is to extend this limited assurance approach to the whole of the Group and undertake more detailed analysis of suppliers who generate substantial carbon emissions. Continuation and adaptation of the EcoVadis supplier assessment programme (Section 3.4, “Aligning the supply chain with corporate responsibility priorities”, page 90)

p Responsible purchasing: • Rolled out new purchasing rules incorporating environmental criteria Group-wide • New Group suppliers’ charter including new selection criteria

Stakeholders: • Disclosure of the Group’s commitments to its internal and external stakeholders: Corporate Responsibility Report, client and rating agency assessments, commitment to the Global Compact, CDP Climate Change and Supplier reporting, etc. • Contributions to a variety of sector-specific organisations: Syntec Numérique in France, Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom, Agoria in Belgium • Attendance at gatherings of French companies that have signed up for the Science Based Targets initiative, jointly organised by WWF and SBTi in Paris
