Several countries, among them for example China, UK, United States, Brazil, Canada, Chile, and Paraguay have decided to either switch to 100% renewable electricity contracts or commit to purchase Renewable Electricity Certificates (REC) which led to a 10% CO2 scope 2 reduction in 2020.
In Italy, process optimization in bituminous production has led to a 4% decrease in CO2 scope 1 emissions with an estimated reduction of 20% by 2022. In China, United States, and Mexico, the replacement of 30 diesel forklifts by electrical ones and LED lighting implementation will also contribute to lower CO2 scope 1 emissions. In 2021, the company will conduct a deeper GHG scope 3 baseline assessment.
