Vivendi is committed to the urgent need to fight climate change and is developing an action plan to reduce its emissions and objectives that should enable the Group to achieve carbon neutrality.
Our activities already generate relatively little environmental damage – at the end of December 2019, Vivendi accounted for 0.01% of the total greenhouse gas emissions of the companies in the CAC 40 index.
To achieve this objective, we are committed to developing the use of sustainable and carbon-free energy, integrating eco-design principles into the development of our products and content, promoting initiatives in favor of the circular economy, raising awareness among employees and suppliers to encourage them in their efforts. Each business unit applies the Group’s action plan at its own level as the impact and challenges of our different businesses and content are not the same.
To ensure the exemplary nature of our commitment, in 2020, we joined the Science-Based Target (SBTi). This commitment is accompanied by the implementation of an ambitious environmental roadmap to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with our commitment to SBTi and to achieve carbon neutrality for the Group and its subsidiaries.
In addition, in order to be transparent about our environmental commitments, we now refer to the criteria of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and comply with its recommendations.
For our Group, the fight against the climate emergency also involves leveraging our power of influence to raise awareness about the climate emergency by creating and distributing committed content.
Through our advertising campaigns, TV and series documentaries, books, educational material and music, we can mobilize to alert, raise awareness and help shift behavior towards a more environmentally-friendly way of life.
