Havas Cuts Carbon Footprint
Havas says it is the first global communications group to become carbon neutral in six of its key markets, marking the first step in a commitment to greener working practices. According to Havas, it has been assessed and approved as ZeroCO2 carbon neutral after having calculated and offset its main carbon emissions in 2006, including electricity and gas consumption, paper use and business travel.
Havas’ carbon emissions in France, UK, Spain, US, Mexico and India amounted to the equivalent of 32,382 metric tonnes of CO2 in 2006, and it has started a focused internal process to reduce this by 20 percent by 2009.
This will primarily affect paper use, transport and other key sources of carbon emissions. The reduction program will be supported by an internal awareness campaign and training programs to help employees reduce their impact on the environment.
