Our carbon roadmap
of CO2 per employee by 2022
Based on 1.68 tCO2eq/employee in 2017 on emissions linked to our travel (by car and air), the energy consumption of our offices (electricity and gas) and waste management and recycling in our offices
Our approach is in line with the recommendations of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which provides for a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions by signatory countries by 2030 to restrict the rise in temperatures to less than 2°C. Kallista Energy wants to contribute as much as it can to this global objective.
Thanks to the combined efforts of all its employees, Kallista Energy was able to achieve this objective starting in 2021 in a context of growth. As a result, emissions from our office activities per employee were reduced by -52% in 2021 compared with 2017. The decrease in our emissions, which began between 2017 and 2019, continued after a 2020 assessment marked by the COVID-19 pandemic. The actions taken, in particular on the electrification of our vehicle fleet and the efficiency of our heating equipment, paid off.
Towards a new roadmap built on Science-Based Targets (SBT)
To continue to minimise its impact while ensuring the growth and resilience of its activities over the long term, Kallista Energy will incorporate Scope 3 emissions into its carbon footprint starting in 2022. A new roadmap will be developed on the Science-Based Targets Initiative methodology.
Our commitments to the environment
- 01. Electrify 100% of our vehicle fleet by 2023
- 02. Ban domestic flights and limit international flights
- 03. Avoid, reduce, and recycle waste from our offices
- 04. Improve the energy efficiency of our equipment
- 05. Encourage consideration of ESG criteria in activities within our scope 3
- 06. Develop the best projects with the help of independent experts
- 07. Guarantee an exemplary site for each of our projects
- 08. Ensure the environment is protected and noise disturbances are limited around our wind farms
- 09. Invest in the repowering of our ageing wind farms to optimise renewable electricity generation
- 10. Recover the blades of dismantled wind turbines and contribute to searching for solutions adapted to future volumes
2021 Carbon Footprint Of Kallista Energy

1 CO2 emissions linked to our wind and solar farms: manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance. Source: ADEME carbon database 2021: 14.1 g of CO2eq per kWh (for a 20-year span) for wind and 43.9 g of CO2eq for solar (25,3-year span), plus electricity consumption of our facilities (operation of plant auxiliaries).
Even though not all CO2 emissions in this category fall within the direct scope of Kallista Energy (Scope 3), we endeavour to work with responsible suppliers who are also seeking to minimise their carbon footprint. ESG criteria are therefore systematically integrated in our contracts with our suppliers.

Minimising the environmental impact of our projects and our daily activity
We call on independent firms that are known for their expertise to conduct environmental impact studies prior to the construction of a wind farm. Studies into fauna, flora, acoustics and landscaping are carried out in strict compliance with the standards in force to minimise the environmental impact of the wind farm as much as possible, from its construction to its decommissioning. Risks related to extreme physical events, natural disasters and climate change are also included in these studies.
Moreover, we seek to limit the environmental impacts of our teams on a daily basis: electrification of our vehicle fleet; sorting and recovery of our office waste; replacement of appliances (lights, boilers, etc.) with more energy-efficient items.
Kallista Energy has also decided to completely ban all internal flights. Train season tickets and videoconferencing services are provided to our employees to allow them to travel quickly and comfortably anywhere in France, or to work remotely if they need to.
