What is the relative degree of pollution of the company according to the intensity of its GHG emissions (Scope 1 and 2)?
This metric is part of Eticonsum's research study on the evaluation of companies in the Retail Food sector on environmental, social and ethical issues.
Eticonsum is a non-profit market research agency specialising in ESG (environment, social, governance) corporate performance applied to consumer insight.
We research and analyse the ethical market in the FMCG sector and assess the environmental and social performance of companies in order to help both conscious consumers to decide according to their values and companies to compete on ethical reputation.

GHG emissions intensity is a key indicator when monitoring the real relative impact of a company's carbon footprint. We therefore value companies including this indicator in their reporting, albeit with different denominators to the one we have chosen.
The measure we have selected to assess the intensity of GHG emissions in the retail sector in a homogeneous way is TnCO2eq per m2.

However, few companies measure their intensity in relation to their surface area, so in this case we have calculated this indicator based on their total own emissions (scope 1 and 2) and the published sales surface area in m2 (on the basis of which the company has calculated its emissions and supply consumption).
