Keeping an eye on the Corporate Carbon Footprint

You need to know the amount, if you are going to reduce it. Doka sets a good example and actively provides transparent reports on the Corporate Carbon Footprint, company-wide reduction targets and measures to consistently reduce emissions. Furthermore, it also explains why the carbon footprint has the potential to be a new currency.

Now everyone is aware of this fact, thanks to transparent communications. More than half of Doka’s greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 & 2) come from bought-in energy for electricity, heating and cooling. This is what the Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF), in other words the carbon footprint throughout the company, shows and this is now available for Doka Europe.

Before the Corporate Carbon Footprint could be produced, it required many months of intense cooperation with the individual countries. The commitment of the teams who worked on this was fantastic, because everyone was aware that we had to work together to combat climate change. CCF provides the starting point for Doka’s climate strategy, the CO2 reduction targets and the introduction of measures. CCF data was collected first for all European Doka countries with all their branches. It is intended that this information will also be available for the NAMLAM and MEAAP areas by the end of the year.

"We want to see a 75% drop in emissions by 2026 and 85% by 2031 compared to the figures in 2021.
(Scope 1 & 2).“

But what, exactly, counts towards the “Corporate Carbon Footprint”? All emissions generated by a company's activities within one year. This sort of emissions balance sheet includes emissions from vehicles and plant used by the company and bought-in energy (such as electricity and heat). The carbon footprint will become one of the most important key performance indicators for the economy over the next few years. Many experts are of the opinion that CO2 will become one of the most sought-after currencies in the world.

Greenhouse gases cause the climate change that has been so very threatening to man and nature for years and is destroying livelihoods. The EU is aiming to be climate neutral by 2050 by implementing a major programme such as the European Green Deal.

Together we drive momentum

As part of the Umdasch Group, we at Doka aim to not only be economically successful, but also fulfill our ecological and social responsibilities as well as our responsibility as an employer. Therefore, we regularly set impulses within and outside our company and drive international initiatives that make our common working and living environment more sustainable.

Now a transparent system is in place, Doka's employees all over Europe know exactly where they can start. The largest CO2 lever needs to be moved and thus make a contribution to combat the climate crisis. Step by step. Together. All in the same boat.

Anna Högn-Reichartzeder I Sustainability Manager Doka

“Bought-in energy and the associated greenhouse gas emissions account for more than half of Doka Europe's Corporate Carbon Footprint, in other words power for electricity, heating and cooling. It’s all the energy we need to operate our company. And that is also the greatest lever if we want to reduce CO2. If we change over to sustainable sources of energy here, we will be able to measure how we are benefiting the climate and thus make a genuine contribution to protecting the climate.”

Doka and Umdasch Group are committed to sustainable development.
This is why we subscribe to initiatives that are aligned with the United Nations’ “Sustainable Development Goals”.
