Our commitments and quantified targets

We are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and invent solutions to avoid them in all our activities.
The Group has a number of levers it can employ that contribute to an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions: on one hand by reducing emissions from the facilities it manages (energy efficiency, optimization of operational performance, use of renewable energy, destruction of methane thanks to certain of the Group’s operating methods), and on the other hand by helping third parties to avoid emissions thanks to its activities (energy and material recovery in particular). 


  • Capture over 60% of the methane from the landfill facilities we manage.
  • Achieve 100 million CO2 equivalent metric tons of emissions reduced over the period 2015-2020
  • Achieve 50 million CO2 equivalent metric tons of emissions avoided over the period 2015-2020
