Heppner, a transport and logistics solutions provider and leader in goods flows to and from France, has set itself the goal – as stipulated by the tertiary decree – to reduce its energy consumption by 40% by 2030 and set targets for logistics activities at ambient temperature.
To this end, Heppner has sought Deepki’s expertise to:
- Collect and track the buildings’ energy consumption data;
- Define an appropriate general and individual response strategy for the buildings as Deepki identifies priority sites requiring energy audits;
- Create awareness among the company’s employees of good energy use practices with the goal of encouraging them to reduce their individual and collective energy consumption;
- Build and implement CSR indicators as part of the company’s extra-financial reporting.
For the last few years, the Heppner Group has followed a specific CSR approach underpinned by strong decarbonisation ambitions. These ambitions are reflected in the energy transition – already in an advanced stage of implementation – of its own vehicle fleet, and also in the Energy Transition Pact that the company signs with its subcontractors to support them in their own transition. For a company of Heppner’s size, buildings are also an essential lever for decarbonisation. Hence the decision to work with Deepki.
An anniversary that coincides with the platform’s deployment outside of France!
After one year working with Deepki, Heppner now has a complete overview of the electricity and natural gas consumption of its 89 buildings – totalling 424,000 m2 – in France.
All the CSR data concerning Heppner’s buildings are now centralised and securely stored directly in the Deepki Ready platform. This platform enables users to view their buildings’ performance and load curves in real time, define specific action plans to reduce the buildings’ energy consumption and comply with regulatory obligations.
In the near future, Deepki will accompany Heppner abroad (Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain, United Kingdom) to help it gain a complete overview of its energy consumption in all these countries.
Deepki’s co-founders, Vincent Bryant et Emmanuel Blanchet, said:
“We are very pleased to continue and strengthen this partnership with Heppner, and to support them in implementing their CSR strategy. We will continue to provide them with the best technological solutions developed by Deepki. We are looking forward to supporting Heppner abroad as well, to help them accelerate their environmental transition on a global scale.”
Cédric Frachet, Heppner’s Chief Operating Officer, said:
“We are very committed to applying to our CSR approach the same rigour and processes that we deploy in our business lines. Heppner takes a global approach to reducing its carbon footprint and we act wherever it is possible. We are very happy with our partnership with Deepki, which has enabled us to measure, make good decisions and take effective steps to improve our buildings’ energy efficiency.”

 The Tertiary Eco Efficiency Facility (DEET), also called “tertiary decree”, imposes a progressive reduction on the energy consumption of tertiary buildings over 1,000 m2. This regulation aims to save 60% in total energy consumption in these buildings by 2050.
