Carrefour renews its commitment to the climate
Carrefour has been partnering the City of Paris in its implementation of the Climate Plan since 2017. The Group has now renewed its commitment to carbon neutrality and renewable energy by signing the new Paris Action Climat charter.
Launched by the City of Paris in 2013, the Paris Action Climat partnership scheme enables Parisian businesses and institutions to buy in to the commitments of the Climate Plan by signing a charter. The scheme has been revised with the assistance of the Agence Parisienne du Climat to enable signatories to take part in a club for partners and in communities of sectoral players, meetings, monitoring and discussions with peers.
A 1.5°C business strategy
A partner in the Climate Plan since 2017, Carrefour has signed the new “Paris Action Climat” charter which redefines the project to transition to a post-carbon and 100% renewable energy city by 2050. In signing up to the Gold Level, the charter’s second highest level of commitment, the Group has undertaken to adopt a business strategy to limit global warming to +1.5°C between now and 2030. The revised charter also aims to strengthen the role of the Partner Club, enabling increased interaction between players and encouraging their participation in projects supported by the city. The Club meets annually as a monitoring committee to review the past year.
Carrefour has committed strongly to the climate, in particular by implementing a low-carbon strategy in 2015 with the aim of slashing its CO2 emissions by 40% by 2025 and by 70% by 2050 (compared with 2010). Ambitious targets which involve reducing energy consumption in stores, stepping up its promotion of natural refrigerant fluids, developing more environment-friendly modes of transport such as bio-methane powered trucks and continually increasing its use of renewable energy.
