Our collaboration with Planted has shown us that sustainability for companies can be started with manageable effort. The calculation of the carbon footprint is the basis on which we will carry out many optimizations to reduce emissions in the coming months.
After personal onboarding by the Planted experts and the appointment of a sustainability officer in the company, innomatec was able to start recording emissions quickly.
CO2 balance sheet
In the first step, the data on operational emissions was compiled and entered into the sustainability platform's calculation tool. The carbon footprint was then automatically calculated and analyzed. It became clear that innomatec only emits low emissions in Scope 1 and 2. The use of the PV system in particular contributes to Scope 2. More than 90 percent of emissions fall into Scope 3 and relate to the procurement of materials.
With the help of the balance sheet, innomatec was able to develop a status quo that will help to develop strategies for reducing the carbon footprint in the coming years. The focus here is on the materials aluminum, copper and steel, which make up the majority of the footprint. In close cooperation with suppliers, it is important to clarify where the material comes from. There are also further questions regarding the quantity or possible alternatives.
Planned reduction measures
Result and outlook
Innomatec has set itself the goal of reducing its carbon footprint step by step in order to be able to market its products better and at the same time make production as sustainable as possible.
"Thanks to the collaborative partnership, intuitive software operation and good preparation by the Planted experts, the first step towards greater sustainability was much easier than expected," says Managing Director Pascal Schröer. "In just a short time, it was possible to get a holistic overview of our carbon footprint - without much prior knowledge." It is now important for innomatec to get employees on board, involve them in the strategy and keep them regularly informed via newsletters and quarterly reports. In the medium term, the company is planning to move into a new building, the construction of which will once again focus on sustainability.
