Reducing the Group’s environmental footprint

THE LAGARDÈRE GROUP SWITCHES TO GREEN ELECTRICITY IN FRANCE

As part of its policy of reducing its environmental footprint, the Lagardère group has switched to green electricity for all electricity supply contracts under its control in France. Since 1 November 2017, our electricity has come from hydroelectric, wind, solar and biomass sources.
In practical terms, for each kWh consumed by Lagardère, our supplier injects one kWh of green electricity into the national grid.
To give an idea of our contribution to the national energy transition effort, to produce the 40 GWh of electricity we consume each year, it would take one nuclear reactor two days, the Flamanville plant 18 hours or all French nuclear plants combined one hour.
Since green energy is more expensive than standard electricity, we took advantage of improved terms obtained in the most recent tender process to absorb the additional cost without any pain.
We will definitely be extending this approach to the other geographical areas in which the Group operates, while naturally taking account of local generation sources.
