OUR CO2 EQUIVALENT EMISSIONS DESCRIBED FOR EACH GROUP OFFICE
Find out in detail from which activities the CO2eq emissions that we are currently able to calculate derive from. Scope 1 and 2 are 100% complete. Calculating scope 3 is instead more difficult because it refers to indirect emissions, not under our direct control. We report here the categories we have calculated to date.
Table A presents the numerical results of the emission categories for 2019, while Table B describes in detail the activities that produced these emissions.
DAVINES VILLAGE CO2eq EMISSIONS: -47.7% COMPARED TO 2018. BUT HOW WOULD IT BE IF…
The graph highlights in the foreground the amount of emissions from Davines Village over the past three years. Between 2017 and 2018, emissions grew following a trend that we were committed reversing with radical actions.
We have replaced natural gas from fossil sources with biomethane from renewable sources and have chosen electric or plug-in hybrid cars for the new vehicles in our company fleet. Furthermore, the graph shows how scope 2 emissions deriving from the supply of electricity are completely eliminated, thanks to the use of 100% renewable energy sources since 2006. Today we are proud to be able to say that between 2018 and 2019 we have almost halved our CO2eq emissions: -47.7%.
To show how relevant this result is, in the background in the same graph we have made a projection of what the emissions of the Davines Village would have been without the improvement actions we have undertaken: 5 times greater than the current ones.
These data show that having a positive impact is possible, but it is necessary to become aware of the situation and act with urgency.
PARMA MAIN OFFICE – effective and potential emissions without improvement actions (Scope 1 + 2)
DAVINES GROUP’S CO2EQ EMISSIONS: -2036T COMPARED TO 2018. BUT HOW WOULD IT BE IF…
GROUP – actual and potential emissions without improvement actions (Scope 1 + 2 + 3)
This graph shows the quantity of emissions emitted into the atmosphere by the Davines group and, in the background, the emissions that would have occurred if the improvement actions carried out in the offices and production site in Parma and in all the offices of the Group’s subsidiaries worldwide had not been implemented.
In particular, it is visible how the choice to power the production plant (see table B) and most of the offices in the world with electricity from renewable sources has made it possible to avoid an important share of emissions: in this context, the installation of solar panels on the roof of the Mexican office has allowed the branch to consume more than 68% of electricity without producing emissions and consequently decrease its total emissions compared to 2018.
Also interesting is the saving of 34 tons of CO2eq in scope 3 for the Parma main office, made possible thanks to the introduction of smart working.
All improvement actions made it possible in 2019 to avoid the emission of 2,035.96 tons of CO2eq into the atmosphere.
