Reducing CO2 emissions is everyone’s responsibility

Not reducing your company’s carbon footprint is a risk.

Because your customers, who are increasingly aware of this aspect of their choices, could go and see the competition.

Carbon neutrality is everywhere.

The targets set by the UN, Europe and governments to achieve carbon neutrality will never be reversed. Moreover, the pressure from citizen-customers and citizen-employees is intensifying.

How can you implement
your low-carbon solutions?

You have two options: wait and see then, once your back is against the wall, invest massively in greener production methods, in insulating your plants, by innovating in sustainability, in short supply chains. The problem is that between the decision and the action, the clock is ticking. During this time, your carbon footprint continues to rise. Neutrality, in that case, is even more difficult and costly to achieve.

And that’s not all! At the same time, a significant proportion of your customers, disappointed by your wait-and-see approach, will be gone. Not to mention that new talent will be attracted by companies already actively involved in the fight against global warming.

The other method is not to wait and to implement measures now aimed at achieving the initial 2030 targets.

To reduce carbon gently and effectively, it is necessary to get information as quickly as possible. This is all the more prudent given that the reference year chosen by the European Union for vehicle emissions reductions is 2021.

The new European rules for CO2 emissions

New cars in 2030

From 2030, CO2 emissions from new cars will on average have to be 37.5% lower compared to 2021 levels.

Light commercial vehicles in 2030

Over the period 2025-2029, CO2 emissions from vehicles such as vans will have to be 15% lower compared to 2021.

From 2030, CO2 emissions from new vans will have to be 31% lower, on average, than those in 2021.
