Atenor certified carbon neutral
Belgian real estate developer Atenor has obtained the Carbon Neutral certification in collaboration with CO2logic, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
CO2logic offers the CO2-Neutral certification to organizations that calculate, reduce and offset their climate impact. Since 2015 this label is also certified by Vinçotte, an international independent certification body. There are many carbon-neutral certifications around the world but few have a third-party validation by a serious and credible certifier, the press release notes.
As for 2019 onwards and as part of its global social responsibility approach, Atenor has started a collaboration with CO2logic to calculate its different emissions at corporate level in all the countries where the company is present. To achieve this, the developer has scrutinized every area in which the company has an impact. The exercise included among others the climate impact from energy consumption, refrigerants, company cars, commuting, business travels, and purchases such as paper and IT elements.
Atenor says that it is now taking the next step by using this input to set up a streamlined climate reduction plan and strategy up until 2030. At the corporate level, the reduction efforts will in the first place mainly focus on energy-saving measures and opportunities to reduce the impact of its means of transport.
The environmental contribution of the company's sustainable projects is assessed by the international certifications BREEAM and WELL, as well as by other local labels
