CO₂ reduction

CO₂ reduction

FairClimateFund helps you map the CO₂ footprint of your business operations, products and services. Once you have mapped out your energy consumption and CO₂ emissions, you can use this as a basis for your climate strategy and goals. Objectives that are aligned with the Paris objectives and climate science are also called Science Based Targets. Once you have formulated your objectives, you then determine what the most important and cost-effective opportunities for CO₂ reduction are.

Reducing your own energy consumption – scope 1

Direct CO₂ emissions are caused by the organization’s own sources. This only concerns emissions from our own building, transport and production-related activities. This includes your own diesel generators and gas consumption for heating systems, your own cars or trucks or the use of coolant in cooling equipment and air conditioning systems. You can reduce your CO₂ emissions through actions aimed at your business premises and business operations, such as insulation.


Reducing purchased energy consumption – scope 2

This concerns the indirect emissions of CO₂ through the generation of purchased and consumed electricity or heat. As an organization you use this energy internally, but you do not generate it internally. That generation takes place somewhere else, for example in a power station.

A major step in CO₂ reduction takes place by switching to green energy or investing in generating your own sustainable energy.

Reducing third-party emissions – scope 3

This concerns CO₂ emissions in the chain over which you have little direct influence. Consider, for example, emissions caused by the production or extraction of purchased raw materials or materials and outsourced activities such as freight transport. This also includes indirect emissions as a result of business travel with private vehicles and business air travel. By taking action on the travel behavior of your staff, you can reduce CO₂, but you can also take sustainability aspects into account when making purchasing decisions.

CO₂ reduction of products and services

If you want to reduce the CO₂ emissions of a product or service, you have come to the right place. To calculate scope 3 emissions of a complex product or service, it is best to have a so-called Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) carried out. Together with you and our partners, we will then map the CO₂ footprint of the entire production chain and see how we can reduce CO₂ in the chain as much as possible.
