Our action plans for reducing scope 3 emissions
Our innovation and agronomy teams are working hard to meet the challenge of climate change and GHG reduction, leveraging two complementary aspects: the reduction of GHG emissions and carbon sequestration.
In 2019, the VIVESCIA cooperative and Malteurop launched a first experiment in partnership with Heineken on the cultivation of low-carbon barley, i.e. varieties that have a lower carbon footprint than standard varieties. The aim is to measure GHG emissions from the production of barley. More

Our plan for reducing the emissions under our direct responsibility (scopes 1 and 2)
A remote meter reading and energy consumption tool: makes it possible to monitor total consumption for each site and each business.
The cooperative is counting on its Grain & Inputs Logistics Performance Plan, launched in 2019, to reduce GHG emissions by optimising journeys and reducing inter-silo transport.
Agriliance begins in January 2021 an experiment to run six trucks on Oleo100, a fuel developed by Avril Group which cuts GHG emissions by 60% compared to diesel and emits less particulate matter.
Malteurop continues to work to optimise its energy consumption. Installing new equipment to boost energy efficiency is just one of the initiatives the company has rolled out to its maltings across the world.
Scope 1 & 2 emissions: direct emissions generated by the use of fossil fuel combustion on our sites or fuel in our vehicles, fugitive emissions caused by refrigerant leaks and upstream emissions generated in transforming the energy we buy (electricity, steam, and heat).
Scope 3 emissions: all other indirect emissions linked to our business activities, from the agricultural stage through to end-of life treatment for the products we sell.
