Bilan Carbone® Scope 1,2,3 (in tons of CO2 equivalent) and breakdown of emissions
Greenhouse gas emissions related to the activity in 2020 amount to 1,7 kT eq CO2. (vs 2,4 kT in 2019)
In relation to the 1775 tons produced in 2020, the balance per ton produced is 993 kg CO2 eq./t on scopes 1, 2 and 3 or 28,1 kg CO2 eq./t on scopes 1 and 2. As a comparison, the carbon efficiency of a traditional cement manufacturer is greater than 500 kg CO2/t (scope 1 and 2).
The lack of transparency of the other players in the sector on this scope 3 perimeter does not allow comparison.
Near the ¾ emissions are generated by the first plant located in Bournezeau. Production purchases (materials - products) represent 55% of the GHG emissions related to inputs. As for any industrial innovation, initial investments weigh on the model through capitalization. Thus, machines represent 77% of the GHG emissions of this item, i.e. 18% of the total emissions of the activity.
