14 steps to climate neutrality

Guide: From energy to climate management

from energy management to climate management

In cooperation with GUTcert and the registered organization German Corporate Initiative Energy Efficiency (DENEFF), ÖKOTEC publishes a guide that supports companies on their way to climate neutrality.

In order to achieve the German government’s climate targets, companies have to become climate-neutral by 2050 too. The target group for the “From energy to climate management” guide is companies with certified energy or environmental management systems in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 or 14001.

Would you like to make your company more climate-friendly?

We explain how to do this in our new guide “From energy to climate management”. The guide thus takes up a demand made by Economics Minister Peter Altmaier, who had already called for an instrument to certify climate-neutral facilities in his climate charter.

With this guide, we would like to provide companies with strategic and practical support in mastering the enormous challenge of achieving climate neutrality. Companies with an established management system have an ideal starting point for integrating these important topics and positioning themselves for the future.

14 steps to climate neutrality

The guide is divided into five steps and 14 stages. Extensive information and illustrations, many tips from practice and a checklist with concrete action requirements and tasks are compiled in a condensed form.

  1. Step – Inventory
  2. Step – Create greenhouse gas model
  3. Step – Climate strategy: avoid, reduce, compensate
  4. Step – Integration of the KliMS into the company processes
  5. Step – Verify and communicate

Each stage and each step are complemented by practical tips. This shows how existing synergies from energy or environmental management can be used optimally.
