The FDJ has about 25 million players in France, or one out of every two French adults. This popularity has pushed the group to become more responsible year after year to demonstrate its commitment to society and the environment.
Since 2008, the FDJ Group has been measuring its carbon emissions across its entire scope of activity (scope 1, 2 and 3). The largest emissions item concerns inputs, particularly gaming media (production of paper and end-of-life media). Prior to the establishment of science-based targets (SBT), this item represented 49% of Scope 3 emissions, followed by advertising-related emissions (TV, Internet, radio, etc.).
Between 2007 and 2017, while FDJ was growing by nearly 5% per year, the group managed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 8%. However, the FDJ Group wanted to go further by strengthening its ambition in terms of climate policy.
Created in 1976, the FDJ group, also known as Française des Jeux, is one of the world’s leading gambling companies, with both lottery and sports betting activities. It has more than 30,000 points of sale in France, which makes it the largest distribution network in the country. To diversify its activities, the group also proposes technological solutions for professionals and an entertainment offer.
Launched in 2008, the group’s climate approach was strengthened in 2019 with the definition of a new environmental policy and a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target for 2025: 20% of its GHG emissions between 2017 and 2025 across its entire scope. This target for reducing the FDJ Group’s carbon emissions has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative.
