Visiativ draws up its carbon assessment for all its activities in France, based on the Bilan Carbone® methodology, developed by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (Agence de l’Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l’Energie – ADEME). The Bilan Carbone® method records the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of all the activities of an organization by identifying its activities that emit the most GHG in order to initiate changes as part of a continuous improvement approach. By measuring its environmental impact, Visiativ intends to target its main sources of direct and indirect CO2 emissions, in order to implement actions to reduce them.

In order to improve its carbon impact, Visiativ wanted to deploy lines of thought in line with the most significant GHG emissions sources, namely travel and energy consumption related to buildings. In addition, as a company mainly anchored in the software and IT services sector, Visiativ acts on a daily basis to improve its responsible digital practices. In line with the Energy Efficiency Plan rolled out by the French State in the last quarter of 2022, Visiativ wanted to define its own energy efficiency commitments, and thus drafted its own internal efficiency plan. The Company thus undertakes to implement concrete initiatives to reduce its GHG emissions between 2022 and 2024, to contribute to achieving the French target of reducing total energy consumption by 10% by 2024.
In 2021, Visiativ signed a partnership with Energy Observer. Originally the name of the first autonomous and zero-emission hydrogen vessel, Energy Observer is now an organization that connects professionals and experts from all backgrounds, with the aim of developing zero-emission energy solutions that are both economically accessible and sustainable. Sailing around the world in search of innovative and promising initiatives, the Energy Observer vessel brings together people around ambitious and meaningful projects. As the first French ambassador of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN, the mission of Energy Observer is to act, raise awareness and pass on knowledge and solutions to as many people as possible to meet the challenges of the energy and environmental transition.
