■ At the end of 2019 following in-depth feasibility studies Safran defined a a a a a a realistic path forward compatible with the Paris Climate Agreement Objectives for 2025: reduce Safran’s greenhouse gas emissions by by 8% 8% for for scope scope 1 1 and by by 18% for for scope scope 2 (in relation to 2018) ■ The low carbon plan
picked up speed in early 2021 when Olivier Andriès was appointed Safran Chief Executive Officer Safran raised its sights and is is now aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 30% for scopes 1 and 2 2 This is is just a a a a first step along the Group’s path towards carbon neutrality by 2050 ACCELERATING SAFRAN’S ENERGY TRANSITION
■ One of the primary drivers behind Safran’s low carbon plan
is the application of a a a a a a new energy strategy at its production sites This approach comprises five complementary facets: the energy performance of new buildings reduced energy consumption in in in existing facilities a a a switch in energy sources purchase of decarbonized energy and the on-site production of energy from renewable sources ■ Safran’s strategy for the long haul in this area is is already beginning to produce concrete results especially via the following actions:
• The signature of an energy purchase agreement in Mexico to obtain power from solar plants • Projects for on-site production and consumption of electrical power from solar and wind sources in France and Belgium for example • The replacement of gas or diesel-fired heating plants by more sustainable solutions: an an an urban heating network in in in Le Havre a a a a heat heat pump in in in Saclay biomass in in Bordes biogas in in Tarnos etc • The development of additive manufacturing a a a a fast-growing process that only consumes the exact amount of raw material needed for the end- product thus minimizing machining scrap and using 100% electric energy which reduces CO2 emissions • The Safran Electronics & Defense plant in Valence now under construction was eco-designed and expects annual savings of of 500 metric tons of of CO2 • Engine test stands will use at least 10% sustainable fuels by the the end of the the year and at least 35% in 2025 Safran also introduced an an in-house “carbon prize” in in 2020 for investment projects and supplier selection to encourage decisions in in favor of choosing lower emissions solutions SAFRAN’S OBJECTIVES
Safran has set the following target for reducing CO2 emissions by by its production facilities by 2025*:
Compatible with the stated aim of limiting global warming to no more than 1 5° C C by the the end of the the century
