GCI address the needs of authorities that want to refine the measurement of their carbon footprint, particularly Scope 3, which is difficult to grasp due to large numbers of suppliers, subcontractors and service providers.
As a result they want a better way of measuring their impact in order to reduce it, and potentially offset it.
THE NUMEROUS BENEFITS:
WHAT IS THE METHOD OF CALCULATION?
This is the statutory method required by Article 75 of the Grenelle II Act, which covers, in addition to Scopes 1 and 2, activities related to the company’s upstream and downstream activities (Scope 3) since Decree no.2016-1138 of 19 August 2016 relating to environmental information which must be included in the company’s annual report.
The framework of the system to calculate a GHG Inventory should also be taken into account as part of the tendering process: a public procurer is perfectly entitled under its bidding procedure to require the inclusion in the environmental aspects of the evaluation criteria of the bidder’s GHG inventory for their offering (reference: Question AN published in the OJ: 28/05/2019 / Answer published in the OJ: 27/08/2019 page: 7760)
OUR SOLUTION ?
As a result, GCI has developed a specific offer for local authorities, suitable for:
- its central organisation and its various territorial, legal, economic, commercial and administrative entities to carry out their own GHG Inventory
- its service providers, subcontractors and suppliers (Scope 3),
- accurate, consistent and compliant calculations of their direct and indirect GHG emissions,
- definition of roadmaps and goals that are regularly monitored and readjusted if necessary,
- educational proposals to research solutions to reduce their emissions.
- “Carbon” benchmark for calls for tenders
They will therefore have access to:
