FairClimateFund helps to 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 these as the basis for your climate strategy and goals. Goals that are aligned with the goals of Paris and climate science are also called Science Based Targets. Once you have formulated your goals, you then determine the most important and most profitable opportunities to reduce your carbon emissions.
Reducing own energy consumption - scope 1
Direct CO₂ emissions are caused by own sources within the organization. This only concerns emissions from our own building, transport and production-related activities. Think of our own diesel generators and gas consumption for heating installations, our own (truck) cars or the application of coolant in cooling equipment and air conditioning systems. You can reduce your CO₂ emissions through actions aimed at your business accommodation and business operations, such as insulation.
Reducing purchased energy consumption - scope 2
This concerns the indirect emission 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. This generation takes place elsewhere, for example in a power station.
A major step in CO₂ or carbon reduction is taking place by switching to green electricity or investing in generating your own sustainable energy.
Reducing emissions from third parties - scope 3
This concerns carbon emissions in the chain that you can exert little direct influence on yourself. Think, for example, of emissions caused by the production or extraction of purchased raw materials or materials and outsourced activities such as freight transport. Indirect emissions as a result of business traffic with private vehicles and business air traffic are also part of this. 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. For the calculation of scope 3 emissions of a complex product or service, it is best to have a so-called Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) performed. Together with you and our partners, we map out the CO₂ footprint of the entire production chain and look at how we can reduce as much CO₂ as possible in the chain.
