Climate measures at ÖKOTEC

As part of our business activities, we actively strive to use resources responsibly and to minimize our carbon footprint. We undertook a first inventory of our corporate GHG emissions in 2018, and are conducting a new company carbon footprint every two years.

Each year, we also set ourselves ambitious targets across the areas markets & clients, products & innovation, organizational development & processes and human resources & leadership, and we monitor our progress with relevant indicators and KPIs.

How we embrace responsibility

Our company offices are located in an LEED Platinum certified building on the EUREF-campus in the Berlin district of Schöneberg.
We purchase food, cleaning products, and office materials from sustainable suppliers based on ecological criteria.
We purchase electricity from “Naturstrom”, a renewable energy pioneer and one of the few providers offering Gold Standard renewable electricity.
We use energy-saving light bulbs and LEDs in our offices and only drink (climate-friendly) tap water.
A very large share of our business travel is conducted using public transportation. We also compensate for carbon emissions from unavoidable air travel and other business trips by purchasing carbon offsets from Atmosfair.
Our team uses public transportation and bicycles to commute to work.
