Key achievements

Analysis of the residual environmental p impact of the Group’s purchases (not included previously in Scopes 1, 2 and 3) On the basis of data for France (which • represents 43.8% of Group data), a limited assurance approach was applied to scale up this data proportionally, arriving at an estimate for the total GHG emissions linked to the Group’s purchases of 221,311 tCO 2 e using the ADEME method. Our aim is to extend this limited assurance approach to the whole of the Group by 2025.
