Because they transform raw materials and rely on long-term investment, industrial companies are on the front lines when it comes to anticipating climate change and building a low carbon economy.

Many questions are to be answered. What are my direct emissions, and how can they be reduced? What are the impacts of my products and services? How can they be part of a resilient low carbon economy? How can I adapt my infrastructure and my value chain to a changing climate?

These issues can be a challenge for the company’s technical processes and decision-making procedures, for its strategy, positioning and services, for its relationships with investors, suppliers, customers, and more broadly for its relationship to society at large and the common good.

Carbone 4 has many references for its work with industrial companies in all sectors, and has the expertise needed to accompany industrial clients as they confront all the challenges arising from the energy transition and adaptation to climate change.

Operational issues, strategic stakes

To limit risk and seize the opportunities afforded by transition, industrial companies must seek to align their strategy and activities with international objectives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. With this in mind, Carbone 4 works with industrial clients to answer these questions:

  • What is the carbon footprint of my operations? Of my products?
  • How do I meet regulatory requirements (in France, BEGES, Bilan Carbone, energy audits, article 173 of the Energy Transition Act)?
  • How can I shrink the carbon footprint of my operations?
  • What strategy should I pursue in a low carbon world?
  • What “science-based targets” and trajectory should I pursue for my company?
  • How can I obtain value from my solutions?
  • How can carbon constraints be turned into a driving force within my company?
  • How do I convince and train my employees?
