Faurecia has become a member of Entreprises pour l’Environnement (EpE).
The body is a French association bringing together more than 60 French and international companies from all business sectors, looking to include the environment in their plans.
Faurecia is addressing topics such as climate change and biodiversity, as well as resources savings and has defined a roadmap to reach CO2 neutrality for its internal emissions by 2025 (scopes 1 and 2).
By 2030, Faurecia will reduce by half its scope 3 controlled emissions and the Group aims for full CO2 neutrality by 2050, including the use phase of its products.
Deployed since 2020, the plan has been approved by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) and is compatible with the trajectory required to limit global warming to +1.5°C.
Faurecia partners with companies to reduce energy consumption and use renewable energies across its sites. All actions focus on three principles: use less, better and longer.
The Group is also committing to the circular economy and invests in sustainable materials to reduce the environmental footprint of its products and in batteries and hydrogen technologies for zero-emission mobility.
“We are delighted to become a member of EpE as we consider sustainability – and the environment in particular- as a key component of Faurecia’s performance,” said Faurecia Group Sustainable Transformation VP, Rémi Daudin.
“Through our CO2 Neutrality programme, we want to act now for future generations, become a leader in environmental transformation and lead the industry change.”
Faurecia noted as per SBTi validation: “Faurecia commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 80% by 2025 from a 2019 base year.
“Faurecia also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 46% by 2030 from a 2019 base year.”
