More responsible cooling for buildings

We are continuing our efforts to both optimise and reduce our energy consumption. Our aim is to use 100% low-carbon energy in our buildings by 2025.


Optimising energy management

STEF is continuing to reduce its electricity consumption thanks to its EMS (Energy Management System), undergoing continual development since 2013, and the use of Artificial Intelligence to control its cold production facilities. We are aiming to reduce our electricity consumption by 15% by 2025.

At our sites outside France, which are not subject to the ISO 50001 procedures, we have decided to carry out systematic energy audits to achieve additional energy savings. Renewed in 2020, ISO 50001 certification is still held for France.

We have also chosen to develop self-generated energy by installing photovoltaic panels. At the end of 2022, the Group had 31 power plants in operation, with an installed capacity of almost 21 MWp, generating more than 25 GWh a year.


Innovating and testing new solutions

Hydrogen is one of the solutions being considered by STEF. A dedicated team has been set up to study the various production methods and possible uses. The Group plans to test new solutions for producing, storing and sharing electrical and cooling energy at its EnergyLab in Madrid, where experiments are currently underway.

At the same time, STEF is pursuing its plan to replace refrigerants with fluids with a low global warming potential.

ISO 50001

Nearly 138 physical sites and 174 legal entities in France have been certified for their energy management in accordance with this international standard.


EcoVadis Gold

For the 7th consecutive year, STEF has been awarded the Gold level by EcoVadis for our sustainable performance and we rank in the Top 1% of the most virtuous companies in the road haulage sector.
