Objective: assess your environmental impact and optimise your performance.

 

Environmental impact: growing expectations from investors and consumers

environmental and social impact of brands

The performance of organisations is today directly linked to the management and optimisation of their environmental impact. In order to maintain their competitiveness, they must respond to new climate-related challenges, by reducing their carbon emissions. The Paris Agreement marked a decisive turning point, creating unprecedented awareness of the importance and urgency of taking action in the face of climate change: already at the centre of international negotiations, the climate is now studied by financial and non-financial analysts, by investors and by consumers.

The assessment of your environmental impact is therefore a crucial step in identifying your optimisation levers, enhancing your performance and increasing the confidence your stakeholders have in your organisation.

Why should we measure our greenhouse gas emissions?

A performance issue:

Beyond the regulatory aspect, measuring your greenhouse gas emissions is a first, essential step in identifying your reduction levers, constructing your low-carbon strategy and optimising your climate-friendly activities.

Current legislation (France):

In France, carbon accounting is governed by article 75 of the French Environmental Code which requires that French companies with more than 500 employees and local authorities with more than 50,000 inhabitants publish a report on their emissions for scopes 1 and 2 every 4 years. The Energy Transition Law also requires French companies with more than 500 employees, with turnovers above 100 billion euros, to publish in their management report a report of “significant items of direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions”, throughout their value chain.

In order to meet the requirements of investors and asset managers more specifically, EcoAct collaborates with Forward Finance to evaluate and reduce the risks linked to investment portfolios.
