Mangroves, coral reefs … protecting biodiversity is a priority  

 We can observe a mangrove in clear water.

We are committed to preserving biodiversity through a number of initiatives. This is particularly true of our carbon sequestration projects. To reach our net zero-carbon objective by 2040, our strategy is to reduce our CO2eq.* emissions by 90% compared with 2020. However, we must also act on the 10% that we cannot eliminate. To this end, we finance carbon sequestration projects based on natural carbon sinks (e.g. in forests, mangroves or agroforestry), which offer added benefits for biodiversity and local communities. To this end, we helped launch the largest project to restore and sustainably manage almost 1,000 hectares of mangroves in Cameroon in 2022, in partnership with Sia Partners and the Planète Urgence association.

In addition to natural carbon sinks, we support and participate in biodiversity preservation programs. In January 2024, for example, we partnered with Tēnaka, a social enterprise committed to preserving marine ecosystems. Alongside them, we are developing an artificial intelligence-based solution to improve impact reporting on the restoration of coral reefs and marine biodiversity.
