Vivendi is committed to fighting climate change and to reaching net zero by following an action plan to avoid, reduce and compensate its emissions.
Even though our activities generate less environmental damage – at the end of December 2019, Vivendi accounted for less than 0.02% of the total greenhouse gas emissions of companies in the CAC 40 index – we recognize the role of companies to be important and want to actively act.
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 and 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 faced by our different businesses and product lines are not the same.
In 2020, we took our commitment one step further by joining the Science-Based Target initiative (SBTi) which provides companies with science-backed recommendations for reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This commitment is accompanied by the implementation of an ambitious environmental roadmap to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition, in order to be transparent about our environmental commitments, we now refer to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) criteria and comply with its recommendations.
For our Group, the fight against climate change also involves leveraging our power of influence to raise awareness about the climate emergency by creating and distributing impact-driven content.
Through our advertising campaigns, TV series, documentaries, books, magazines and educational material, we can alert, raise awareness and help shift behavior towards a more environmentally-friendly way of life.
