To integrate environmental stakes in our core business by acting on its logistics flow, its energy consumption, its waste and to ensure an environmentally-friendly disposal of the products it distributes.
RAISE AWAREMESS AMONG THE CUSTOMERS
Simultaneously, to inform the customer on the environmental impact of many products in order to guide them towards a less impacting product.
The Group allows its customer to take on a more responsible consumption by providing them with information related to the environmental or energy impact and efficiency of its products.
|Environmental labelling: Fnac is the first brand to have adopted a voluntary approach to provide its customers with information on the environmental impact of its television sets, PC, tablets and mobile phones. Environmental display uses a marking system to summarise the product’s impact on the climate and natural resources during its entire lifecycle: manufacture, transport, usage and end-of-life.||Simulateur d’économies d’énergie : Darty France launched a simulator for energy savings accessible on the Darty.com site to allow customers to estimate the energy consumption of their devices and evaluate the savings if they opt for their replacement for washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers and wine coolers.|
SECOND LIFE OF PRODUCTS
Being conscious of the negative impact on the environment generated by technical products and household appliances having a shorter and shorter life, the Group works on promoting the second life of products and the environmentally-friendly disposal of our products. As such, the company is part of a circular economy approach.
Fnac combines associative and environmental commitment through two main projects: the book collection in the stores in profit of Bibliothèque Sans Frontières and the recycling and re-use of technical products by Ateliers du Bocage, subsidiary of Emmaus employing people on reintegration programmes. Darty has also this double commitment through the ENVIE program for repairing and reselling at heavily discounted prices household electrical goods returned by the customers at the end of their lifespan. The company has set up several other take back programs, free of charge, for old appliances in delivery as well as in stores.
In order to tackle the climate issues related to CO2 emissions, the Group leads an energy consumption reduction policy as well as an optimisation of its transport operations. They represent the two most important emissions sources of the Group. The Group has also invested in equipment that is less energy-consumptive and has provided all of our stores with a guide to best practices in order to reduce our stores’ negative impact. The Group conducts and published on a regular basis a carbon footprint report in order to control its emissions.
