The programme of responsible initiatives of Carmila
How can we engage our customers and retailers and bring them together in pursuit of a more responsible and socially inclusive form of consumption? What action can we take to effectively protect the environment and tackle climate change? How can we make full use of new technologies, particularly digital ones? How can we mobilise our employees to bring about a more respectful form of growth?
To answer these questions, in 2019 Carmila created Here we act, a programme of responsible initiatives that it has deployed in France, in Spain and in Italy that focus on taking action in three areas.
the local regions
For Carmila, maintaining the dynamic nature of our regions means: supporting, fostering relationships, helping, advising, co-developing and adapting to the realities of our regions and their talents in a socially inclusive way… with all social and economic players.
Acting for local employment
Promoting more responsible consumption
Encouraging local solidarity

For Carmila, taking action for the planet means: restructuring our assets so that they meet an ambitious environmental standard, raising people’s awareness of the good habits they need to get into and helping our stakeholders understand climate change.
Establishing our assets as components in the city of the future
Contributing to the fight against climate change
Reducing our energy consumption

in greenhouse gas emissions at 31/12/2022 vs 31/12/2019 (scopes 1 & 2) in location based
in energy intensity at 31/122022 vs 31/12/2019
Carmila has set itself the goal of zero net carbon emissions Scope 1 and 2 in 2030. By 2030, Carmila will reduce its emissions by 90% compared to 2019 thanks to a reduction in its energy consumption and the exclusive use of renewable energies in its centres. The remaining 10% of emissions will be subject to a positive contribution, in line with the recommendations of the SBTi (“Science Based Targets initiative”). This compensation is provided by financing the agro-ecological transition of farms close to Carmila centres, in partnership with TerraTerre. Carmila will also continue to reduce its Scope 3 emissions, with the ambition of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040.
For Carmila, taking action on an everyday basis for our employees means: helping them to flourish, achieve satisfaction and surpass themselves, creating a team spirit, etc.
