The construction industry is responsible for nearly 40% of global emissions. Decarbonizing this sector is crucial. That’s why public tenders are increasingly demanding transparency, requiring contractors to disclose the CO2e footprint of construction sites and products. At Doka, we support you in your mission to successfully meet new sustainability requirements.
As a Doka customer, you can compare the carbon footprints of our products to make informed and eco-friendly decisions. By doing so, you can improve your company’s CO2e footprint.
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), passed by the EU Parliament in 2022, will require most companies to calculate their greenhouse gas emissions on a broad basis. This includes both direct and indirect emissions from upstream and downstream supply chains. We help our customers calculate their Scope 3 emissions by providing the necessary data on our products.
For us, the PCF is not an end goal, but a tool to identify CO2e hotspots throughout the entire product lifecycle. It enables us to take targeted action to effectively reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of our current product portfolio. We are also incorporating our findings from the Product Carbon Footprint for new developments. This involves using the right materials and reducing material consumption while maintaining the same load-bearing capacity. Our ultimate goal is to create inherently sustainable products that play a key role in achieving our net-zero emissions strategy by 2040.
At present, the PCF data for the required Doka formwork products is available electronically upon individual request. Please reach out to your designated Doka contact for assistance.
We differentiate between rental and by use cases. We can also calculate the PCF on a proportional basis for the respective rental period of the formwork.
We are working on this, and the data for our scaffolding solutions will soon be available.
