The 5 steps of climate action

The following 5 steps are required for ClimatePartner certification:

Scroll down to see how the requirements were met.

Step 1
Carbon footprint icon

Carbon footprints

The corporate carbon footprint (CCF) is the starting point for climate action. The CCF gives you clear insights into a company's greenhouse gas emissions - for example, you can identify where the carbon hotspots are and define emission reduction measures accordingly to mitigate the company's climate impact effectively.

The carbon footprint calculation is based on data from the period January 2022 - December 2022.

Carbon footprint (in CO₂ equivalents):

3,817,800 Kg CO₂

Included in the carbon footprint

Different emission sources, called scopes, are covered by the carbon footprint. All scope 1 and scope 2 emissions are included in this carbon footprint, while only applicable scope 3 emissions are included. The scopes are defined as follows:
  • Scope 1 includes all directly generated emissions that a company controls, for example fuel for company cars.
  • Scope 2 includes indirect emissions caused by purchased energy, for example electricity.
  • Scope 3 includes indirect emissions from a company's activities, which may cover, for example, employee commuting, logistics, and the production of raw materials.
Scope 3 emissions included in this carbon footprint:
Business travel
Employee commuting
Fuel- and energy-related activities not included in scope 1 or scope 2
Waste generated in operations
Upstream transportation and distribution
Step 2
reduction targets icon

Reduction targets

Reduction targets are an essential part of a company's climate action strategy. By setting concrete targets, companies define the areas, scope, and timeframe for implementing reduction measures.*

Scope 1 and 2 emissions

Scope 1 emissions include all emissions that are either directly generated by the company or under direct control of the company, for example fuel for company cars. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions generated by purchased energy, such as electricity.

Reduction Measures Icon

Reduction measures

To meet their reduction targets, it is important for companies to plan and implement concrete measures to achieve effective climate action. This section shows you the reduction measures that have been implemented.*

*A consumption greater than 100% indicates the energy is fed into the electricity grid and can be used by other households and companies.
Step 4
Impact contribution icon

Climate projects

This company financially contributes to certified climate projects for a specific amount of emissions. The projects are regularly audited by independent third parties, and contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Number of projects supported:

1

Climate projects were financed for the following amount of emissions:

3,817,800 Kg CO₂ *

* The amount of GHG emissions shown for the financial contribution to climate projects (step 4) may be different from the total carbon footprint (step 1). Differences may result from an allocation of GHG emissions between multiple certifications for the same company (e. g. certification of the company as well as certain products). Furthermore, companies may add a 10% safety margin to their carbon footprint to address uncertainties related to the underlying data. Also, companies may source products or services for which a financial contribution has already been made via a third party, which results in a lower financial contribution via ClimatePartner.

All climate projects at ClimatePartner fulfil strict criteria defined by widely-recognised international standards. Among other things, the projects are required to undergo regular independent monitoring and auditing.

Step 5
transparency icon

Transparency

An essential part of a company's climate action journey is to make its ambition and achievements visible. The ClimatePartner label is a core component that businesses use to make their climate data and actions fully accessible and transparent to their customers.
