CO² emissions: bioMérieux is switching to renewable energy

Initiated 15 years ago at our Grenoble site in France, the integration of photovoltaic panels on our sites has accelerated over the past five years, as part of our “2020 HSE Vision” program to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.​​​​​​​

As part of its “2020 HSE Vision”, bioMérieux committed in 2015 to reducing its direct greenhouse gas emissions(particularly CO²) by 20% in 2020, with sales constant.

The target was largely exceeded, as these emissions were reduced by 39%: in other words, since 2019, our company's annual emissions are equivalent to those of 2015 despite the very strong growth in our activities!

Among the measures implemented over the past 10 years, photovoltaic panels were installed by six bioMérieux entities, covering up to 20% of power consumption in some cases.


"Our company's strategy for the coming years is to further increase the reduction of our CO² emissions by adopting a “1.5°C trajectory”, according to the criteria of the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi). Such an ambition requires a major effort to decarbonize our energy supply."
