Forging a sustainable World

Forging a sustainable World

Responding to the climate emergency, VINCI is acting faster to reduce its impact, transform its businesses and create innovative solutions. The Group aims to play an active role in the ecological transition of living environments, infrastructure and mobility systems.

Its ambition concerns all levels in the Group and involves employees, clients, users and suppliers. VINCI’s integrated design-build-operate approach helps reduce environ-mental impacts at each stage in a project’s life cycle. Aware of the responsibilities that go with its activities, but also of its capacity to make a positive contribution to this transition, VINCI has set itself a new environmental ambition looking to 2030, focused on three main areas:

Acting-for-the-climate

ACTING FOR THE CLIMATE

The Group is taking action to limit the consequences of climate change, by setting ambitious targets:
• Reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) by 40% by 2030, compared with 2018 levels.
• Reduce its indirect emissions by taking action across the entire value chain.
• Adapt structures and activities to improve their climate change resilience.

OPTIMISING RESOURCES THANKS TO THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

OPTIMISING RESOURCES THANKS TO THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

VINCI intends to limit its impact by moving towards a circular economy. Above all, this means improving our design and production processes, reducing extraction of virgin raw materials, reusing and recycling.
• Promote construction techniques and materials that uses fewer natural resources.
• Improve waste sorting to ensure systematic waste recovery.
• Limit the extraction of primary raw materials in favour of recycled materials.

PRESERVING NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS

PRESERVING NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS

Throughout the project life cycle, the Group’s entities must have as little impact as possible on natural environments, and must develop solutions to conserve fresh water resources and restore ecological balance.
• Prevent pollution and incidents by systematically implementing an environmental management plan in all our business lines.
• Optimise water consumption, especially in areas of water stress.
• Aim to achieve no net loss of biodiversity.

To achieve this ambition, VINCI mobilises its teams and innovation potential to accelerate both the transformation of its businesses and the creation of environmental value in the projects it implements for its clients and in the services it proposes to users and partners of its infrastructure.

This drive in particular involves a campaign to embark the Group’s 217,000 employees on an all-new process to spur progress: the Environment Awards, which reward the best initiatives from the field, submitted by employees around the world.
