At Verdot, we take our global impact seriously. Nothing is more important to us than our sustainability efforts, and our commitment to our people and the community around us.

A low-impact mindset

Sustainability is a core consideration in every decision we make. Not just because waste is bad for the planet – but also because it’s bad for business.

We’re always looking for ways to be more sustainable in our business decisions and operations through an official Environmental Social and Governance – or ESG – board, led by our dedicated ESG Manager. Our eco-engineering design process supports the use of recyclable/ biodegradable materials, and an integrated manufacturing process helps us reduce both waste and unnecessary travel.

One of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry

As an organization, we have been conducting carbon footprint analysis since 2013. Not only have we been pioneering assessing our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) impact, but we have made sure to evaluate our footprint across all GHG scopes.

  • Scope 1: direct (on-site) emissions, including manufacturing
  • Scope 2: indirect emissions
  • Scope 3: indirect value chain emissions (i.e., supply chain and transportation)

We are proud to have one of the lowest carbon footprints in the life-science manufacturing industry:

  • 2 TeqCO2 per million euros revenue for scopes 1 and 2
  • 74 TeqCO2 per million euros revenue for scopes 1 to 3

From concept to manufacturing, we strive to have a low-environmental impact mindset and are constantly evaluating approaches to reduce our footprint and that of our clients.

ECO-Res’PEER designation

In 2022, we were awarded the ECO-Res’PEER designation by the local governmental body Communauté d’agglomération Riom Limagne et Volcans for the proactive response to environmental, social and economic issues through sustainable development (reference).

Furthermore, Verdot was presented with the Engaged + Performing Corporate Social Responsibility logo by the Union des industries et métiers de la métallurgie (Union of Metallurgies Industries or UIMM) for contributing to a more sustainable economy through it’s economic performance and social and environmentally-sustainable policies and practices (reference).

Engaging in policy

Charles Ruban, our CEO, participated in the launch of the decarbonization initiative “Pacte PME” at the Economy and Finance Ministry of France. Verdot was invited to join by Sanofi to discuss how to further enable reduction of carbon footprint emissions.
