Group's carbon footprint: Amundi reduces its greenhouse gas emissions

Tuesday 21 February 2017


At the end of 2016, Amundi evaluated its Carbon Footprint® for its entire scope, France and International. In 2015, Amundi generated 27,630 tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2-eq), i.e. 7.5 tons of CO2-eq per employee, the equivalent of three Paris/New York return trips per employee and per year. This represents a decrease of 5.7% compared with 2013. France accounts for 67% of Amundi’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Performing a carbon audit meets three objectives:

  • Meeting regulatory requirements, notably those of the French law on Energy Transition for green growth, which requires that companies report on the CO2 emissions generated by their direct and indirect activities;
  • Contributing to national and global targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Confirming Amundi’s proactive approach to reduce its environmental footprint.

In order to calculate its Carbon Footprint®, Amundi took into account its direct and indirect emissions:

  • Scope 1: greenhouse gas emissions related to the direct impact of its activity (fuel for company cars and cooling network);
  • Scope 2: greenhouse gas emissions related to energy consumption;
  • Scope 3, upstream: indirect greenhouse gas emissions (employee commutes and business trips, purchases, fixed assets and waste).
