An industrial

Industry accounts for 20% of greenhouse gas emissions in France.
The National Low Carbon Strategy (SNBC) defines France’s trajectory to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, a commitment made following the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP 21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
“SNBC target for French industry: – 81% of emissions in 2050 compared to 2015.
Intermediate target of -30% in 2030
In a carbon-free world, the competitiveness of a product with a high carbon footprint will be impacted by a high carbon price and a reputational risk: it is therefore important for an industrial company to anticipate its transition by implementing actions that limit its impact on climate change through a long-term investment plan.

    Physical risks and adaptation to climate change in industry - Focus on WORKERS 29 April 2022

    Climate change, and in particular the increase in climatic events, will modify working conditions, both indoors and outdoors, and access to industrial sites, and increase the risks to workers' health and safety. These impacts will have consequences for industry, its activity and productivity, which must be anticipated and prepared for. ADEME has published a memo that presents the concepts related to physical risks for workers in the industrial sector, the factors to be considered and the existing tools. Download file

    Financial and extra-financial overview of corporate carbon reporting 18 December 2021

    This report presents an overview of the financial and non-financial reporting of a sample of French listed companies on climate issues. It focuses on three specific topics: the quantitative indicators used by companies to report on climate issues, the information communicated on carbon neutrality commitments for those that have made them, and finally, the accounting implications and climate-related information included in the financial statements. The report presents some good practices and highlights the efforts that are still needed to prepare for the strengthening of the regulatory framework. Download file

    ADEME publishes the summary of the sectoral transition plan for the cement industry in France 23 November 2021

    In order to meet the objective of the National Low Carbon Strategy (#SNBC), which aims is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 81% by 2050 (compared to 2015) for the entire French industry, the Industry Department of the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (#ADEME) is drawing up Sector Transition Plans (STPs) which model and analyse possible decarbonation trajectories for the nine most energy-intensive sectors, including the cement industry. Through a co-construction process with the sector's stakeholders, it emerged that the technological and economic challenges for decarbonising the #cement sector by up to 81% are significant. With its 360° vision, the STP also explores the inseparable aspects of the transition: market evolution, costs, financing and jobs. Download file
