- Carbon footprint analysis
- Bespoke recommendations on how best to utilise offsets
- Transparency, measurement and delivery all on one platform
- ESG reporting made easy
Dutch Green Business Group N.V. (“DGB” or “the Group”) (Euronext: DGB), a leading reforestation and carbon offsetting company, is proud to announce the launch of its new carbon management platform CO2.expert. The platform enables retail and corporate clients to measure their carbon footprint and provides recommendations about how to address it with carbon offsets.
The CO2.expert platform has been developed to provide accurate, reliable and consistent carbon dioxide emissions analysis, combined with a user friendly, fast and effective interface. CO2.expert unites the entire carbon management process in a single platform to help companies and individuals keep track of carbon emissions and allows them to take immediate action.
It enables companies to measure the carbon impact of their business activities and identify the highest carbon producing activities. Users enter information about their business activities such as transport, energy use, fuel type and materials. The platform is fully compliant with the internationally recognised standard GHG Protocol and helps companies become carbon neutral in four easy steps:
- Measure & Understand.
- Reduce & Avoid
- Offset residual emissions
- Showcase & Disclose
The platform is designed in a way that multiple users of a company can contribute information allowing for greater oversight and understanding of where the biggest carbon impacts lie. The platform not only looks at the embedded carbon savings of reusing, redeploying and recycling materials, but it also takes transportation into consideration.
The CO2.expert platform also contains a user friendly checklist to help businesses complete all the steps necessary to achieve PAS 2060, the internationally recognised specification for carbon neutral status..
All data, graphs and certificates from CO2.expert are exportable, thereby enabling users to include them for internal or external ESG purposes, corporate reporting, evidencing compliance with the criteria required for green financing, investor presentations and quoting documents.
The information provided to users on the platform delivers:
- Comparability - it allows users to gain actionable insights and compare themselves to other players in industry
- Scalability - new locations can be added as corporates grow for company-wide impact reduction
- Efficiency - it reduces the effort and time to calculate your carbon footprint
To guarantee quality, DGB has worked with multiple specialist Dutch carbon modelling and sustainability consultancy firms, to develop the platform. DGB is working on building a network of distributors consisting of ESG consultants who will also have access to the platform.
Commenting on the launch of the calculator, Peter van der Wal, impact consultant at DGB, said, "We're excited to provide our clients with a new and game changing platform that enables them to clearly measure their carbon footprint and understand the best ways to reduce this. Whether used by corporates or individuals, the calculator is easy to use, transparent and scalable delivering certainty when so much in the carbon space is intangible.”
CO2.expert is the first platform developed by DGB’s wholly-owned subsidiary, GreenTech Solutions, in collaboration with sister software development company, Statix Artificial Intelligence B.V.
DGB is working on expanding its range of greentech solutions highlighted on biodiversity.space
On 30 December 2021 DGB announces its end of year and Q4 operational statement, providing an update on the total signed purchase agreements for carbon offsets in 2021, its project development pipeline and outlook for 2022.
