While we recognise that our direct carbon footprint is relatively small compared to that of other business sectors, we are committed to minimizing our impact on the natural environment through energy-efficiency initiatives such as; in boutiques, optimization of energy use in manufacturing sites, as well as awareness-raising initiatives.
CARBON FOOTPRINT / CARBON NEUTRALITY
We recognise that we have a role in controlling greenhouse gas emissions that is why we measure our emissions each year and aim to reduce them.
Through measurement and the purchase of ‘carbon offsets', Cartier has been carbon neutral since March 2009.
Our carbon footprint is calculated using a template adapted from the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) tools. This protocol is the internationally accepted template for accounting and reporting on GHG emissions.
The measurement covers:
- Direct GHG emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the company. It includes energy use from buildings and emissions associated with the vehicles we operate.
- Indirect emissions associated with purchased electricity, heat and steam.
- Other indirect emissions resulting from the usage of private cars and the mileage from the use of commercial airlines for business travel.
