IE 11.1 of the France Invest ESG Reporting Framework focuses on water discharges, a key indicator of a company’s environmental performance. It involves measuring the amount of waste or harmful substances released into watercourses or bodies of water during the reporting period.

1. How to answer this question ?

Companies must first quantify the total volume of water discharges in tons. This measure should include all types of discharges, whether chemical, organic, or thermal. If the company does not have this information, it should note “not available” in the comment.

2. Why is it important ?

Water discharges can have significant impacts on aquatic ecosystems and human health. Regulators, investors, and consumers use this data to assess a company’s environmental impact and its management of environmental risks.

3. Examples :

– Example A: “This year, our company generated 5 tons of water discharges, a 20% reduction from the previous year thanks to better wastewater treatment practices.”

– Example B: “We do not yet have precise data on our water discharges for this reporting period and therefore mark ‘not available’ pending the update of our monitoring systems.”

Accuracy and transparency in reporting water discharges are essential for companies seeking to prove their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.
