Many companies believe that environmental protection is complex and expensive. That’s why we at CO2OP have made it our mission to help you become climate neutral with manageable effort and cost-efficient measures, while maintaining your profitability.
But what is climate neutrality anyway? All products, processes and companies that do not emit any climate-damaging gases, e.g. CO2, are considered climate-neutral. Climate neutrality is achieved by reducing avoidable emissions, such as through a company’s ecological orientation. In addition, residual emissions that cannot be avoided today can be offset by certified climate protection projects.
The CO2OP process is designed to lead companies to climate neutrality simply and sustainably in three steps
1. Calculation of your CO2-footprint
The calculation is possible efficiently and quickly through our analyses. For the carbon footprint, the production of your products, the data is analyzed according to Scope 3. The collection of stakeholder data is an important component here. Here, if desired, we take over the independent communication with your suppliers or work out with you &
your suppliers reduction strategies to reduce or neutralize the CO2e hot spots.
2. Consideration of internal reduction measures and joint implementation
In collaboration with experts and specialized energy consultants, an optimal mix of measures can be put together to reduce the carbon footprint. Here, we focus on energy efficiency measures that pay for themselves quickly.
3. Compensation through certified climate protection projects
To achieve climate neutrality, unavoidable residual emissions are then offset by compensation projects. These naturally meet internationally recognized standards such as the Gold Standards, which ensure the additionality and long-term stability of a project, among other things.
Why your company also benefits from the CO2OP process:
Climate protection measures are already worthwhile today. For example, electricity from your own solar power system often costs less than electricity from the utility company, and LED lighting can halve the amount of electricity needed for lighting.
Climate protection makes your company more attractive. Young employees in particular value commitment to environmental and climate protection – whether as employees or consumers.
A stringent climate strategy is becoming increasingly important for your partners. More and more banks and companies require their customers and suppliers to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions, resulting in risks and strategies to minimize them.
Climate neutrality makes a contribution. As a climate-neutral company, you make your contribution to reducing global warming and thus to preserving the quality of life for our and future generations.
As a company, you have a social responsibility. At CO2OP, we support you in meeting this responsibility and thus becoming an environmentally friendly and climate-friendly company. Keeping track of your emissions and those of your products while at the same time moving forward with the conversion to resource-saving processes is a major challenge.
We believe that it doesn’t take expensive and complex processes for your company to reduce its environmental impact while maintaining profitability.
We know that this means a change for you and accompany you step by step with our holistic approach as you sustainably reduce or compensate your CO2e footprint and that of your products with cost-efficient measures.
