Carrefour does potential risks opportunities related climate change issues addressing risks opportunities sustainability program (see Sustainability Reports 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006) various initiatives concerning product creation logistics store operations http //www carrefour com/cdc/responsible commerce/sustainibility report/

 
Section A – 1 Climate Change Risks, Opportunities and Strategy
Question 1(a)(i) – Regulatory risks
<>For question state time period possible associated financial implications commercial risks does climate change present company including regulatory risks associated current and/or expected government policy climate change e g emissions limits energy efficiency standards
Existing regulation related climate change greenhouse gas emissions does pose significant impact Carrefour Recent European legislation building energy performance use fluorinated gases anticipated company efforts improve energy efficiency reduce fluorinated gas leakage stores 2002 Group identified opportunities reduce operational costs anticipate future environmental regulations meet growing stakeholder expectations actions key performance indicators store energy consumption store refrigerant use logistic emissions included group’ s sustainability program (see Sustainability Reports) order capitalise future emissions trading schemes applicable Carrefour’ s activities group working improving reliability emissions reporting example France Carrefour collaborating public institutions private companies (the Demeter Environment Logistics Club) developing testing transport indicators suitable measure record emissions saving projects

Question 1(b) Opportunities
<>For question state time period possible associated financial implications commercial opportunities does climate change present company existing new products services
Promotion responsible products change patterns consumption Carrefour group developing and/or listing products promote sustainable consumption products eco labels consume energy water longer products clearly identified consumers "Carrefour Agir" range Shelf stoppers packaging designed help consumers products change consumer habits Carrefour group raises customer awareness stores special events like World Environment Day Promotion cleaner fuels encourage greater use clean vehicles Carrefour group selling alternative fuels France Group offered new Carrefour blend gas oil 2005 diesel enriched OCTIMISE D3010 additive provides pollution excellent fuel performance Carrefour price November 2006 Group signed “ Charter development E85 superethanol France” end 2007 committed opening 40 pumps offering bio fuel Identifying improvement options life cycle assessments better assess impact distribution checkout bags advertising catalogues brochures Carrefour group conducted life cycle analyses analyses measure greenhouse gas emissions life cycle products question 2003 2004 Carrefour group conducted life cycle analysis checkout bags reviewed criticized ADEME demonstrated ecological usefulness reusable carrier bag fifth time used led setting alternative disposable bags stores 2005 Carrefour group conducted life cycle analysis catalogue distributed Dijon region France partnership La Poste Media Poste ADEME study confirmed Group’ s environmental strategy use low grammage paper recycled and/or certified wood pulp managed forests Reducing energy consumption operations Carrefour constantly working energy providers equipment manufacturers try new innovative ways reduce store energy consumption work generally conducted specific store pilot projects successful rolled stores Example hypermarkets stores France France hypermarkets rolled energy management control stores automated manages electrical facilities regulating energy consumption order avoid waste Cold production (representing 45% total store energy consumption) installation glazed doors frozen food cabinets generalization automated nighttime curtains cold cabinets Air conditioning (representing 20% total store energy consumption) use free cooling mid season (Sept /Oct March/May) cool store naturally opening roof skylights cutting need high energy consumption air conditioning Lighting (representing 20% total store energy consumption) fitting stores lights integrated electronic ballasts consume 20% 25% energy 40% longer Laboratories (representing 15% total store energy consumption) closing butcher laboratories previously open sales area reducing height laboratories cold cabinets makes possible cut need cooling Example supermarket stores France 2004 Champion France applied HEQ (High Environmental Quality) approach renovating pilot store Saint Maur des Fossé s approach implemented cooperation local community City hall effort harmonious relationship building environment minimize problems work site test innovative technical solutions save energy water waste comparison electricity water gas consumption 2005 2006 11% electricity savings cold production based investments new technologies 40% electricity savings lighting using neon lighting electronic sodium ballast natural lighting 25% gas savings thanks “ smart building” 35% savings water using ice removal ramps fresh fish department water savings systems optoelectronic controls 2006 Champion supermarkets Bordeaux Bastide Toulouse use certain techniques HEQ approach renovation share experience Saint Maur des Fossé s produced “ Guide best sustainability practices” useful case creating expanding renovating store distributed store directors translated English use internationally Example convenience stores France Convenience store business unit France piloted “ Shopi” stores Ressons techniques reduce energy consumption deployed new Shopi stores Optimising transport logistics Controlling logistics impacts stepsWherever Carrefour group operates integrates sustainable development logistics approach limit CO2 emissions environmental impact integration takes place steps massification flows requires setting national logistics network integrated sub contracted warehouses streamlining flows transport trips Environmental management sites studying alternative transport methods streamlining flows transport tripsTo optimize logistics flows Carrefour group factor orders frequency deliveries truck occupancy rate transport trips case goal reduce number trucks distance traveled optimize deliveries Carrefour group adapting frequency pick ups suppliers stores’ actual needs reduce number trucks used store delivery time slots spread trucks better types goods (in particular dry fresh produce) mixed using innovative packaging Eurack optimize flows Carrefour group works hand hand suppliers logistics providers uses “ backhauling” “ pooling” Example France 9 500 fewer trucks road yearsFrance hypermarkets considerably optimized downstream transport food products years optimizing transport trips (+27% deliveries) optimizing trucks (more pallets truck) optimizing pallets (+25% packages pallet) alternative transport methodsTo reduce environmental impact Carrefour group promoted alternative transport methods European countries (France Spain Italy Romania Poland) water transport rail road Group encouraging logistics providers use vehicles consume pollute (Euro4 standard Europe) testing alternative fuels (delivery vehicles running natural gas study bio fuels ) Example France using river non food importsIn France container supplies headed Paris region’ s non food warehouses (Bondoufle bazaar goods Saint Denis textiles) travel river barges Seine Le Havre port Genevilliers year river transport leads savings equivalent 340 tons CO2 emissions
