A stronger corporate social responsibility policy


Since 2012, IRD has been required to establish a report on its greenhouse gas emissions as part of French national policy to tackle climate change. Through its corporate social responsibility policy, approved by its board of directors on 29 March 2013, IRD has committed to going beyond the legal requirements and issuing a report on its emissions in France and abroad.

After a full review of its emissions covering activities by the France-South representation in 2014, emissions reports were produced for the head office in Marseille and IRD’s representation in Senegal. The results obtained at these sites will contribute to reflections on the methodology to be applied to extend the emissions reports to all IRD sites in France and abroad.
