Preserve the environment

Reconciling digital development and respect for the environment by reducing our environmental footprint and that of our value chain.

Long presented as part of the solution to environmental challenges (paperless systems, process optimisation, etc.), the digital sector must now do its part to reduce its own impact: greenhouse gas emissions throughout the value chain, non-renewable raw materials and the impact of infrastructures on biodiversity and landscapes.

Axione is committed to reducing its impact on the environment. The aim is to develop a culture in which everyone feels responsible for protecting the environment, whatever their role within the company.”

Our ambitions:

Engage on a pathway that will contribute to collective carbon neutrality

Involve our employees in environmentally-friendly business practices and attitudes

Protect biodiversity

Our climate plan: collective carbon neutrality

Through our climate plan, an ambitious course of action supporting the environment over the coming years, we have defined a trajectory for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by:

  • Reducing the carbon emissions of our activities
  • Reducing the carbon emissions of our value chain
  • Creating low-carbon offers to help others reduce their emissions

What we are doing:

Reduce the energy consumption of our infrastructures
We are testing the installation of solar panels at 3 sites in Haute-Vienne and Sarthe. These panels provide an additional source of energy for our fibre connection hubs. This represents an energy saving of between 12 and 22%, depending on sun exposure.

Reduce the environmental impact of our journeys 
We now have onboard telematics and geo-management tools in all our 1,700 service and company vehicles. The smart tool in the vehicle records a number of parameters such as fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and distance travelled.

Decarbonising our purchasing
We organised the 1st co-construction workshop with our three main suppliers of fibre optic cables so that they could share their best practices. The aim is to exchange ideas on quantifying the carbon impact of cables, and then encourage the production of eco-designed cables.
