 A Safran-wide low carbon plan
Over and above eco-friendly products and services, Safran has pledged to reduce CO2 emissions from offices, facilities and suppliers. The low carbon plan, approved in late 2019 and strengthened in 2021, aims to reduce emissions in line with objectives in the Paris Climate Agreement.
Safran’s low carbon plan unites the efforts within each company, based on shared objectives. It covers some 200 Group facilities worldwide with over
50 employees. The targeted reductions concern three types of emissions (known as “scopes”)
as generally defined in environmental management terms. Scope 1 covers direct emissions from offices and factories, generated for instance by heating systems, but also, in Safran’s case, by fuel burned
in test stands. Scope 2 concerns so-called “indirect” emissions, related to the facility’s procured heat
and electricity. Scope 3 covers all external indirect emissions related to the operations of subcontractors and suppliers, logistics, purchasing of expendable supplies, waste management, employee travel to and from work, etc.
