Our own carbon footprint for 2020 equals to 0.219t CO2eq and is composed of the following elements:
The low share of electricity can be explained with the sourcing of green power. The heating share is also low due to the usage of a home office in an energetically modernised building (hence no commuting). As a result of the drastic reduction of business travel, the emissions from heating and energy prechain (well-to-tank) now form the biggest block in a significantly reduced total volume.
Compared with other nonproducing companies, our emissions are fairly low (all figures per capita, related to the number of employees):
The carbon footprint for ORT has been established
during a consultancy project by us. Following the calculation of the baseline
carbon footprint, several measures, most of them requiring no capital
investment, have led to a greenhouse gas reduction of 56% vs. 2010 and
an energy cost reduction of 33%. This analysis has been continued since
then to find potentials for further greenhouse gas reduction.
