A global standard guides the calculation of the carbon footprint
Climecon’s carbon neutrality calculations are based on the internationally used Greenhouse Gas GHG protocol, which provides a framework for calculating and compensating the carbon dioxide emissions of organizations, companies, and cities. We are carbon neutral in terms of direct emissions from our operations and indirect emissions from purchased energy. In addition, we are carbon neutral commuting to work, business trips, waste handling, fuel production, and energy transmission loss. We have compensated our emissions to the extent that we cannot eliminate them ourselves.
Climecon has done a lot of work to reduce emissions from its operations. It has been successful in terms of the company’s direct emissions and purchased energy, and Climecon does produces 80% less of these emissions than in 2019. The company’s value chain emissions have increased since the comparison year 2019 due to operational growth, equipment investments, and an increase in logistics emissions. The difference between 2019 and 2022 is 1301 tCO2e. Our goal is to identify those parts of our value chain that generate unnecessary emissions and to set targets that can be used to reduce these emissions.
Responsible support for the environment
With the help of ecological compensation, the damage caused by human activity to biodiversity is compensated by increasing biodiversity elsewhere. Climecon had 339 tCO2e to offset in 2022. Climecon has chosen projects that support both social and environmental sustainable development in the global South as compensation targets. The Rimba Raya project protecting the tropical swamp forests of Indonesian Borneo, and the Rio Anapu-Pacaja project protecting the Brazilian Amazon rainforest were selected as the compensation targets for 2022.
