Greenhouse gas emissions​

Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions generated by Brembo’s production activities in 2021 amounted to slightly more than 1,394,000 tonnes CO2eq. In a like-for-like comparison with 2020, when Scope 1 + 2 emissions amounted to about 367,000 tonnes of CO2eq, Brembo's factories reported emissions totalling 342,000 tonnes of CO2eq, marking a reduction of almost 7%. This result was achieved thanks to energy efficiency projects totalling 16,062 tonnes of CO2eq and to the purchase of renewable energy solutions equal to 303,000 tonnes of CO2eq. Like every year, the emissions inventory and calculation methodology underwent assurance certification by an accredited third-party body in accordance with the ISO 14064 standard.


Brembo's policy on climate change has included, since 2015, increasingly challenging objectives consistent with the commitments set by the United Nations during the COP21 in Paris in order to combat climate change effects; to win this challenge Brembo implemented a strategy structured into a series of actions aimed at achieving short-, medium- and long-term objectives to cut its greenhouse gas emissions. 

In detail, the Group set an annual sustainability goal defined as a percentage of emissions avoided due to improvements, including efficient use of any form of energy and the use of renewable energy, compared with the previous year’s emission. 

Brembo’s commitment to the reduction of CO2 has been transformed into an internal reduction objective calculated using the following formula:


In 2021, the target of reducing CO2eq emissions thanks to the improvement actions, compared to the previous year’s emissions, set at 19%, was reached and exceeded with a result of about 25%

Compared to the 2020 reporting, in 2021 the Group reviewed its medium- and long-term objectives, relating to all factories, with a commitment to a year-on-year reduction of Scope 1+2+3 emissions by at least 4.2%, with the ultimate goal of reaching Net Zero emissions by 2040. Objectives are inspired by the SBTi (Science-Based Targets initiative) criteria for keeping the global temperature increase well below 1.5°C. Brembo intends to submit its targets for validation to the SBTi. ​


​Future goals​



​Road Map to Net Zero​​ 

To achieve Net-Zero emissions, Brembo has defined a Road Map that is subject to continuous refinement in accordance with technical, technological and market developments. The Road Map includes, among other things, the supply of renewable energy, both self-produced and purchased, to reach a share of 70% of consumption in 2025 and 100% in 2030. 

Further areas of action are represented by the increase in the use of secondary raw materials within products, transport optimisation, energy efficiency and technological innovation. Great commitment is expected in the involvement of the supply chain so that each supplier reduces its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. ​
