The Nice environment: a gentle footprint
For Nice, there are two pillars to respect for the environment: decreasing the direct impact of its production and commercial activities and creating devices that minimise the environmental impacts of the buildings in which they are installed.
One milestone in the Nice sustainable transition process is measuring greenhouse gas emissions: the first step to reducing our carbon footprint. We measured our organisation’s direct and indirect emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3) and then drew up a plan of action that will allow us to halve our Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2025, in line with the UN Climate Action target.
Percentage of Scope 1 emissions by source
Scope 1 emissions are those generated by owned plants (or controlled directly by Nice) and can be traced back to the use of fossil fuels to power heating systems, electricity generators or vehicles - in addition to fugitive emissions of refrigerant gases.
Scope 1 and 2 emissions
Scope 2 emissions are all indirect emissions deriving from energy purchased by the company. Overall, direct emissions compared to indirect energy-related emissions have a more significant weight.
Percentage of Scope 3 emissions by category
In addition to the Scope 1 and 2 categories, we have calculated the emissions of Scope 3, i.e. all indirect emissions upstream and downstream of the value chain, further expanding our greenhouse gas monitoring. It thus emerged that, in our business, the two most impacting categories — which determine approximately 97% of the emissions produced — are goods purchased and those sold.
|Material topic||Goals for 2025|
