Low carbon at the heart of purchasing

Eiffage has the double target of reducing its internal emissions by 46% and its external emissions by 30% by 2030. Purchasing represents 89% of the Eiffage Group’s Scope 3 upstream CO2 emissions.

Measuring greenhouse gas emissions

Since 2011, the Eiffage Group has regularly declared its Scope 1 & 2 CO2 emissions, i.e. all direct and indirect emissions related to our internal emissions within the Group.
In 2021, Eiffage implemented carbon reporting to record the Group’s Scope 3 upstream emissions in France. It identifies the highest-emitting business lines in terms of purchasing expenses incurred.

Carbon issues in purchasing within the Eiffage Group

Avoidance / reduction using innovative tools

In 2022, Eiffage developed internally a tool to compare the environmental performance of products, enhanced with purchasing data. It can integrate environmental performance analysis into our project purchasing or design activities.

Harnessing environmental data to meet customer expectations

Training purchasers

The high-performance tools provided to our purchasers can only be fully exploited if users are well versed in the major climate and environmental issues. In 2022, the Purchasing department therefore enhanced its “Low carbon and sustainable purchasing” training and made it mandatory for all purchasers within the Group.


Climate report

Since April 2020, Eiffage has been committed to controlling CSR risks and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions through our climate report, drawn up according to TCFD (Task force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures) guidelines, which specify the financial risks and opportunities linked with energy transition and climate change.
