Emissions management

Since 2010, we developed our Greenhouse Gas Emissions inventory (GEE) for all GPA brands, according to the specifications of the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program. The information obtained allows us to identify points for improvement and to set targets for reducing emissions in our operations.

We responded, moreover to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), one of the main initiatives in the financial industry to mitigate the effect of climate change, and we are part of the Efficient Carbon Index (ICO2) of B3 (Brasil, Bolsa, Balcão).

In line with our purpose of combating climate change and improving and innovating the environmental management of our businesses, we aim to achieve a 30% reduction in our emissions by 2025 (base year 2015). This goal is also part of the Sustainability and Diversity Index, which has been part of the variable remuneration of the company’s executives since 2016.
