Why did you carry out a carbon assessment?
At SFA Group, our commitment to sustainability goes beyond words; it's embedded in our actions. Conducting a comprehensive GHG assessment allows us to measure our environmental impact accurately. We believe that understanding our emissions is crucial for setting meaningful targets and steering our initiatives towards a more sustainable future.
As a local company headquartered in Paris but operating on a global scale, our choice of partners reflects our commitment to bridging local expertise with global outreach. Greenly, rooted in France yet with a global perspective, perfectly aligns with our approach. Their understanding of local regulations coupled with an international outlook resonates with our commitment to environmental responsibility. Selecting Greenly as a partner allows us to merge local insights with a global vision, advancing our environmental goals on an international level.
What did your carbon assessment reveal?
Our carbon assessment showed that our emissions in 2022 were 171 tCO2e (excluding end-of-use and end-of-life product phases). Our commitment to reducing emissions has led us to take various proactive measures that have earned us the Greenly Silver Medal.
Before our collaboration with Greenly, we had already initiated impactful sustainability measures, including a revamped travel policy, investments in renewable energy, and the gradual transition of our vehicle fleet. With Greenly's partnership, we've intensified our efforts. Our focus now extends to eco-designing products through detailed Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), incorporating carbon impact considerations into our procurement practices, and fostering eco-awareness among our clientele. Additionally, we are striving to reduce packaging weight, increase the use of recycled materials, optimize logistics for efficient truck routing, and gradually shift our vehicle fleet from gas to electric vehicles. Our plans also include offering eco-driving courses to our employees to further embed sustainable practices across our operations.
