The CO2eq emissions generated by Brembo’s production activities in 2019 amounted to slightly more than 1,470,000 tons (scope 1+2+3).
The emissions result is significantly higher than in previous years because scope 3 now includes the new category “Purchased Goods and Services” (emissions generated by suppliers to provide materials and/or services for Brembo), the value of which is approximately 550,000 tCO2eq.
During the year, a panel of 50 suppliers, representing approximately 33% of total spending and 53% of sales by relevant suppliers, were asked to provide some data useful to determining the impact in terms of CO2, such as energy consumption, which were used to calculate the panel’s emissions and reproportioned to total spending. Said activity met a twofold objective.
On the one hand, the total result of the emissions measured was included in the reporting of Brembo’s CO2eq emissions, while on the other, in order to raise awareness among the supply chain of its carbon footprint, in view of constantly improvement in the approach to managing environmental issues throughout the entire value chain, Brembo returned sheets with the results of the analysis performed to each of the suppliers involved.
