Type of Pledge
By 2027, we increase the circularity of our bronze supply with 90 % coming from our machining chip recovery procedure, compared with 74 % (305 t) used in 2021*.
* The maximum threshold of 90 % is imposed by our manufacturing process and quality requirements.
By 2030, we achieve a recycling rate of 90 %, compared with 85 % in 2021*.
* Representing a reduction in our waste of 43.2 t, compared to a total of 917 t in 2021. Equivalent to a 5 % reduction in annual waste tonnage. Typical waste: foundry dross, flue gas cleaning sludge, PET, IT equipment, ceramic fibre, paper and graphite board.
By 2030, we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 & 2) by 50 % compared with 713 tCO2eq in 2021, and by 2024, we commit to the SME Climate Commitment*.
* Measures to reduce Scope 3 emissions are currently being calculated and will be available by the end of 2023. See SME Climate Hub.
By 2027, we guarantee the well-being of our employees, achieving a job satisfaction rate of at least 70 %, based on our survey carried out in 2023*.
* Evaluation by third-party organisations. 2023 survey currently being evaluated.
