denkstatt’s contribution to climate neutrality
For more than 28 years, the denkstatt Group has been advising companies on environmental and sustainability issues. Combining entrepreneurial thinking with ecological and social science know-how is our core area. Thereby, the promotion of the topics as well as the sensitization of the employees is at center stage.
As a consulting firm for social, ecological and economic sustainability, we take on a guiding role for our clients and would like to act as a pioneer with our own climate protection commitment.
Out of our social responsibility and driven by our intrinsic motivation, we have set ourselves a scientifically based climate target that corresponds to a reduction path to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our climate target was developed using the criteria of and validated by the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi).
We have committed to reduce our absolute operational emissions (Scope 1+2) by 50% by 2030, compared to our 2018 base year. In addition, we have determined to measure and reduce our Scope 3 (in our case, for example, from business travel or employee commute to work) emissions.
It corresponds with our philosophy and understanding of honest climate protection that we strive to reduce our emissions as comprehensively as possible – we only rely on compensation at the end of this journey.
Over the next few months, we will be working on our internal climate neutrality strategy, which will be strongly influenced by our science-based target. In this we will clarify which climate measures should be implemented as a priority and how we can ideally use our resources to minimize our emissions.
To define a roadmap for achieving the science-based target, we will take an integrative approach and involve representatives from all our offices from the denkstatt world. In this way, we can respond to national circumstances in the best possible way and at the same time keep the motivation of our colleagues high to engage in climate protection.
