What you can't measure, you can't manage. This sentence by the well-known economist Peter Drucker also applies to a company's emissions and the path to climate neutrality. But specific CO2 emissions can be determined as a 'carbon footprint'. How exactly they can be calculated, reduced and offset, these and more questions on the subject of climate neutrality for companies are answered by experts in the webinar "Path to a climate-neutral company" by EM-Power Europe.
In the webinar, the first presenting company Future Camp Climate GmbH, is one of those service providers who are at the very beginning of the journey, namely in the balancing process, but then accompany companies all the way through reduction and certification to the final offsetting of residual emissions. Afterwards Siemens, one of the first global industrial companies to set out on its own to become climate neutral in its operations across the group by 2030 and to strive for an emissions-free supply chain by 2050, will present solutions and perspectives for companies based on best-practice projects. The webinar will be moderated by the German Energy Agency (dena), which will also briefly present the lead study Aufbruch Klimaneutralität.
