Carbon Footprint

What about our carbon emissions?

24,860 tonnes of CO2 were emitted by Oxbow over the course of the exercise, over one year and two collections: Spring-Summer and Autumn-Winter. The carbon impact was mainly due to our products (82% of total emissions).

This includes the overall supply chain from the production of the raw material up to the manufacture of the products.

Logistics and transport account for 6.5% of emissions.

What are the product families that emit the most GHG?

Over the course of the exercise, six product families were identified as being the most impactful.

They alone account for 88% of the company’s turnover, corresponding to 81% of products sold but also 74% of GHG emissions.

These emissions are mainly linked to two factors: the production of the raw material (growing, harvesting, transporting), and manufacturing (including electricity generated from fossil fuels).

6 families represent :

  • 88% of turnover
  • 81% of products sold
  • 74% of GHG emissions

Goal: A cut of 12.5% in the volume of our total GHG emissions: A reduction of 2.5% per year by 2026, to limit global warming to 2°C

This approach is based on the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which seeks to encourage companies to identify objectives in line with scientific recommendations.

Our objectives aim to reduce annual emissions of GHG by 2.5% per year by 2026 in order to limit global warming below a target of 2°C.

The reduction trajectory up to 2035 has been established and is directly linked to the W2C trajectory (limiting overall global warming below 2°C).
