CO2 Performance Ladder

Jan De Nul NV, a subsidiary of Jan De Nul Group, wants 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. This Dutch initiative allows businesses to show their awareness and commitment to carbon reduction.  

Below, all sections of the CO₂ Performance Ladder are explained.

Insight

Jan De Nul NV has formulated effective targets and measures to reduce CO₂ emissions. The GHG report (document 3A1) gives a/o?? an insight into energy flows and consumptions of offices, including workshops and warehouses, of Jan De Nul NV in Aalst, Zelzate, Bergen-op-Zoom and Capellen (Luxemburg) and of the dredging projects within the Benelux for the year 2017. This inventory was verified by an independent body (LRQA Nederland) and certified on 4th and 7th May 2018.

You will find the results and validation of the emissions for 2017 in document 3A1
You will find the results and validation of the emissions for 2018 in document 3A1

Reduction

The carbon footprint (CO₂ emissions), the proposed objectives and the extent to which these are achieved in fixed locations in the Benelux and of the dredging projects in the Benelux were mapped out.
