Insight provides us with information that we can use to formulate effective objectives and measures to reduce CO₂ emissions. This is what communication and cooperation should focus on.
Perspective A encourages companies to know their own CO₂ emissions, as well as that of others in the chain. The company realises continuous improvement in the depth, scope and efficiency of insight and the quality of the emission inventory.
Smulders has a detailed up-to-date emissions inventory for the CO₂ emissions caused by its operations. We are thinking in particular of electricity and heating, in addition to a few smaller CO₂ sources. The historical data on CO₂ emissions are also included here.
In addition, Smulders has also listed all indirect CO₂ emissions.
These are emissions caused by suppliers, contractors and customers who enter the chain before and after Smulders. The summary is contained in our Scope 3 Analysis. A number of important CO₂ sources of in the chain have been worked out in more detail:
- Steel chain analysis
- Coating chain analysis
- Transport chain analysis
The analyses as well as the historical data on CO₂ emissions can be found under our CSR Publications.
