As part of its software eco-design approach, SOGET has committed to carrying out its carbon footprint.

We asked Ali Cem Uzunmehmetoğlu, Business Analyst in charge of our carbon footprint, three questions.
He tells us about this process and his use of the platform developed by Global Climate Initiatives.

How does SOGET carry out a carbon assessment?

The analysis is done in several stages:

  1. I gather the data to be analysed with all the components I need (eg Kilowatt consumed for electricity),
  2. these data allow me to detail the expenditure items and then to total them,
  3. I can complete the Global Climate Initiatives online platform, which groups its data according to Scopes 1, 2 and 3 of the Grenelle de l’environnement,
  4. GCI transforms our data into tons of CO2 emitted.

What types of data are analysed?

All of the company’s consumption is analysed. But the GCI platform groups them into large families and sub-families.

To give a few examples, we find energy, which belongs to Scope 1 and 2, employee travel, assets and waste, which are associated with Scope 3.

These data are then transformed into tons of CO2 from the Carbon Base®, which is directly available in the GCI platform. Or I can calculate and enter the data directly with the data provided by the producer.

What happens next? After the carbon footprint is completed?

Carrying out this assessment allows us to situate ourselves. We want to adopt the “Calculate, Reduce, Compensate” approach.

The years 2021 and 2022 are currently being analysed. This commitment will be renewed each year.

GCI allows us to obtain a very synthetic view of the tons of CO2 emitted. It also provides an analysis by Scope, so that we can see where efforts need to be made.

Our ambition is to reduce our CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030.
