Carbon Footprint

The Bilan Carbone® methodology is a tool used to measure and assess greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with an organization, company, or community. It allows for understanding the environmental impact of activities and identifying actionable areas to reduce these emissions.

Deveco holds the Bilan Carbone® V8.8 license to conduct third-party carbon footprints and is an accredited consultant by Luxinnovation for the Fit4Sustainability state aid program.

The Method

The Bilan Carbone® methodology is based on a rigorous approach that takes into account all direct and indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and allows for reporting emissions according to ISO 14069 and the GHG Protocol.


Direct emissions (Scope 1) in the carbon footprint are the GHG emissions resulting from the company's activities that are directly controlled or owned by it. This typically includes emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels in company vehicles, heating equipment, furnaces, boilers, etc..


Indirect emissions (Scope 2) in the carbon footprint usually include emissions from the production of purchased electricity, heat, or steam by the company from an external supplier. Other indirect emissions (Scope 3) result from the company's activities that are outside its direct operational control. This generally includes emissions from raw materials, the production of purchased goods and services, goods transportation, the use of sold products, waste generation, and product end-of-life.

The steps to follow

  1. Define the analysis scope by identifying the activities and emission sources to be considered.

  2. Collect the necessary data on energy consumption, business travel, purchases of goods and services, etc..

  3. Analyze the data and calculate the corresponding greenhouse gas emissions.

  4. Identify areas for improvement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, analyzing the results obtained and considering economic, technical, and organizational aspects.

  5. Implement concrete actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions based on the priorities identified during the analysis.

  6. Monitor and evaluate the implemented actions, continuously collecting data and conducting regular carbon assessments to measure the impact of the actions taken and adjust strategies accordingly.

The benefits of a Carbon Footprint

A Carbon Footprint can offer numerous advantages for companies seeking to reduce their environmental impact and contribute to the fight against climate change.

Identification of emission sources

The Carbon Footprint enables the identification of greenhouse gas emission sources within a company or organization, helping determine areas where mitigation measures are needed.

Improved energy performance

The Carbon Footprint can help identify energy inefficiencies, implement energy-efficient solutions, improve production and transportation processes, and reduce waste.

Improving the company's image

Considering carbon emissions and implementing mitigation measures can enhance the company's reputation by demonstrating its commitment to environmental sustainability. This can also help meet the expectations of stakeholders, such as customers, investors, and regulators.

Complying with regulations

Carbon footprints can assist companies in complying with environmental regulations related to greenhouse gas emissions. The upcoming European directive on extra-financial reporting (CSRD - corporate sustainability reporting directive) mandates the mandatory disclosure of GHG emissions across scopes 1, 2, and 3, in line with the EU Taxonomy.
