Solutions, results

Due to the positive image and the strength of its brand, TÜV Rheinland has been selected to certify Poldanor as a "climate-neutral company" with the creation of the "corporate carbon footprint" (CFP). In the climate debate, carbon footprint - L0 is established as a measure of the environmental impact and is an important point in a holistic environmental assessment - L0 . It measures all greenhouse gases which accumulate along the value chain within your company.

Our experts identified and analyzed emission - L0 drivers together with those responsible at Poldanor and identified reduction potentials. The two-old benefit: on the one hand, costs can be saved through the reduction of CO2 emissions; and on the other hand, Poldanor now has strong arguments in competition against less climate-friendly companies.
