Sustainability

CO2

Our restaurant actively strives to eliminate CO2 emissions, starting with a detailed analysis of our carbon footprint, which enables the identification of rapid reduction and long-term goals towards complete carbon neutrality.
 
Thanks to our numerous initiatives, our restaurant contributed to generating 41 tons of CO2 in 2023.
 
Did you know that over the last year, we managed to reduce our CO2 emissions by 7% compared to 2022?

involves understanding the division of emissions into three main scopes, each representing different sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Here’s a breakdown of what each scope typically includes:

Direct emissions are those that occur from sources that are owned or controlled by the company. This includes:
Combustion of fuels in stationary sources (like boilers or furnaces) or mobile sources (vehicles owned or controlled by the company) for heating, power, or transportation.
Emissions from technological processes occurring within the company’s operations, such as chemical reactions or other processes that directly release CO2.
Leaking refrigerants from cooling systems that the company owns or controls, which can release greenhouse gases if not properly maintained.
Indirect energy emissions refer to the emissions resulting from the generation of purchased or acquired electricity, heat, steam, or cooling that the company consumes. Scope 2 accounts for the CO2 emissions from these energy services but occurs at the place where they’re generated, not at the company itself. This includes:
Purchased or acquired electrical energy for company operations.
Technological steam used in processes.
Cooling for maintaining temperature in facilities or for specific processes.

Other indirect emissions are all the other emissions that occur in the company’s value chain, outside of its own operations. This scope is the broadest and can include a wide variety of sources, such as:
