focus on carbon-conscious actions
Dredging and civil works in the Benelux and environmental works of Jan De Nul Group, want to focus on carbon-conscious actions to work towards a sustainable world with a sustainable growth of activities, by reducing energy consumption and CO₂ emissions. Therefore, since 2013, Jan De Nul NV has been the holder of a certificate on the CO₂ Performance Ladder. The current certificate is a level 5 certificate. Since 2020, civil activities in the Benelux and all environmental activities of Jan De Nul Group also achieved the highest level 5. This Dutch initiative allows businesses to show their awareness and commitment to carbon reduction.
Below, all sections of the CO₂ Performance Ladder are explained.
Jan De Nul has formulated effective targets and reduction measures to reduce CO₂ emissions. The GHG report (document 3A1) gives an insight into energy flows and consumptions of all dredging and civil projects in the Benelux and all environmental projects the EU, including all offices, warehouses and workshops in the Benelux from the supporting departments. This inventory verified annually by an independent body and certified according to ISO14064.
The carbon footprint (CO₂ emissions), the proposed objectives and the extent to which these are achieved are mapped out half-yearly.
The approach to achieve those targets is described in the Energy Management Action Plan (see document 3B2).
