Carbon Footprint

Reducing our carbon footprint is a value anchored in the culture of Dairies H. Triballat. Our sites are located in the countryside and we are committed to defending and preserving our little pieces of nature.

Our actions today

Wood-fuelled boilers were installed in June 2012. They now meet up to 100% of the Rians site’s requirements for steam (over 23GWh). Wood is supplied directly from local logging companies situated within less than a 100-kilometre radius.

As a consequence, in 2013, the consumption of natural gas has been reduced by 85% so that, in 2014, natural gas was used as an emergency energy only.

Facts and figures

The Air:
5% reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases by lowering the speed of our heavy vehicles.
Reduction by 75% a year of our emissions of Co² since 2008 through the use of our wood boilers.
7% reduction of our energy consumption by optimising the operational efficiency of our wastewater treatment plant.
Between 2007 and 2013, we have reduced by more than 50% our annual carbon emissions.

The Water:
Annual water consumption divided by 3 in 10 years after fitting water meters in the factories.
Installation of a biological water-treatment plant in 2005 (capacity equivalent to 60,000 inhabitants with a purification rate of 99.5% of the incoming pollution).
Our treatment plant, beyond the originality of its concept, has many benefits including:
A near-zero use of chemicals in its operating cycle.
A financial investment six times lower than that needed for a conventional physicochemical plant.
The production of biological sludge.

La Ferme

The Ground:
Creation of a mechanism to fight against pollution runoff.
Secure storage of chemicals.
Reduction by 50% of the amount of ammonia used on the Rians site.

The Waste:
Selective sorting and treatment of special waste in approved channels.
Labelling the Eco-Packaging.
Halving the industrial waste buried. Systematic use of eco-design.

The Noise:
The Rians site forms part of installations which are classified for environmental protection, the waste and emissions are monitored and measured regularly.
The results are then validated by the Prefecture, which then confirms our license to operate and advise us if corrections need to be implemented.

Our future actions

Our Carbon Footprint®:
Since 2006, Dairies H. Triballat have taken a voluntary approach and anticipate and assess their Carbon Footprint, in addition to the regulatory review every 3 years (BEGES). We are among the first companies in the sector to review voluntarily our Carbon Footprint®.

Our Review:
For the Rians site only, a reduction from 19,000 to 9,800 tCO2e of emissions every year, over the 6 years of the action plan (almost 50% reduction).
And at a group level, a reduction from 30,000 to 17,000 tCO2e of emissions every year, a 43% reduction of greenhouse gases over the same period.

Structural Changes in Energy Supply for the group:
Fossil fuels are polluting, they are becoming scarce and their price increasingly unstable.
It is from this observation - and in order to manage our supplies better - that major changes are underway within the group: high temperature heat pumps for water heating, biomass heating, heat recovery on air compressors, recycling of treated water…
