Vallourec aligns its carbon emissions reduction targets
with the provisions of the Paris Agreement
Boulogne-Billancourt (France), June 25, 2020 – Vallourec announces today its ambitions in terms of reducing its direct and indirect carbon emissions by 2025, taking 2017 as a reference year. These objectives have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
In concrete terms, the Group, which is already a low emitter of greenhouse gases, is committed to:
- Reduce its direct emissions by 20% (scopes 1 and 2)
- Reduce both direct and indirect emissions by 25% (scopes 1, 2 and 3)
A member of the Global Compact since 2010, Vallourec has adopted a solid CSR policy and is strongly committed to environmental protection. The quality of its commitments was recognized in 2019 by numerous rating agencies and by its classification in the CDP Climate A list, which places us among the 179 global companies (including 22 major French groups) distinguished in this respect.
"We are proud of this recognition by the SBTi, which demonstrates our long-standing commitment to the fight against global warming and to a carbon-free economy. Indeed, we are the first company in the oil and gas sector in France to obtain this recognition", said Edouard Guinotte, Chairman of the Management Board of Vallourec.
The SBTi "Science Based Targets initiative" is an initiative supported by the Global Compact, the CDP, the WWF and the American think tank WRI (World Resources Institute), launched in 2015 to provide scientific proof, based on the work of the IPCC, of the compatibility of companies' carbon trajectories with the provisions of the Paris agreement.
CDP Climate is the world authority on the evaluation of corporate carbon policies and reporting.

The Debt Office issues the guarantees to banks and credit institutions, which in turn issue the loans to the companies. Businesses can now apply for loans under the guarantee programme until 31 December 2020 by contacting their lender/bank.

Företagsakuten förlängs till 31 december 202024.9.2020 13:45:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Företagsakuten förlängs till 31 december 2020 Regeringen har beslutat att förlänga Företagsakuten. Företagsakuten är ett kreditgarantiprogram som infördes för att dämpa de ekonomiska skadeverkningarna av coronakrisen. Utformningen av garantiprogrammet är densamma som tidigare och innebär att Riksgälden kan ställa ut kreditgarantier för utlåning till i första hand små och medelstora företag i Sverige som drabbats ekonomiskt av coronaviruset men som för övrigt är livskraftiga. Riksgälden ställer ut garantin till banker och kreditinstitut som i sin tur lånar ut till företagen. Företag kan nu ansöka om lån inom garantiprogrammet fram till den 31 december 2020 genom att vända sig till sin långivare/bank. En lista på anslutna banker och kreditinstitut finns på Riksgäldens webbsida. Staten garanterar upp till 70 procent av lånebeloppet. Fram till och med vecka 38 (18 september) hade 615 lån till ett värde av 2,2 miljarder kronor beviljats inom Företagsakuten. För mer information se Riksgälden
