CARBON FOOTPRINT: MEASURE & REDUCE
oached by Sami, we delivered our second carbon footprint.
The exercise allows us to set up an actions plan focusing on 3 topics:
1. Energies consumptions (scope 1 & 2)
2. Internal workings, travelling and teammate footprint (scope 3).
3. Activity, software development and logistics (scope 3)
We aim to join the Scienced Based Target community and commit to reducing our footprint by 42% by 2030 on our scope 1 & 2, aligned with The Paris agreement (is a climate change treaty to limit the temperature increases to 1.5 degrees, encouraging thus people fighting global warming). In parallel, our team in Cologne is engaged in a local reforestation program, in Ludenscheid. This initiative allows us to interact with the local ecosystem.
MANAGE ETHICALLY OUR WASTE
We have joined the ecologic eco-organization for the treatment of our WEEE
(Waste of electric & electronic equipment).
Internally, collection boxes for old phones are made available to our employees. They are then taken care of by the “ateliers du bocage”, a rehabilitation company.
For other waste, sorting garbage cans are available in the offices. Our papers are collected and managed by “La Feuille d’Érable”, a local reintegration company, which also participates in raising awareness among young people and the active population.
CO2 avoided emissions by our customers, using XpertEye
The use of our XPertEye solution allows field professionals to collaborate remotely and thus avoid travel. Each trip avoided leads to avoided CO2 emissions.
A calculation made by the Good Planet Foundation based on the kits sold in 2020 shows that one kit avoids the equivalent of one ton of CO2 per kit per year, on average.
AWARENESS OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
During the European Sustainable Development Week, AMAmates in France and in the subsidiaries were able to participate in various initiatives:
– Clean up moment (in Rennes, Cologne and Bucharest),
– Awareness of good IT practices,
– Mailbox cleaning challenge(14 giga equivalent271 kilos co2 canceled),
– Soft mobility challenge initiate by Rennes area.
A webinar conducted by local authorities about the way our daily waste are managed has been followed by 56 AMAmates with great enthousiasm and interest.
