Reduction of cleaning chemicals by 50%: Thanks to more efficient cleaning methods we have reduced our usage of cleaning chemicals by more than 50% between 2019 and 2021. The reduction in combination with a new emission factor for cleaning chemicals that is more representative have lowered our tCO2e by 80% for this category.
More environmentally friendly refrigerants: Thanks to new equipment and refrigerant with lower impact we have lowered our tCO2e from refrigerants by 74% from 154,4 tCO2e to 40 tCO2e between 2019 and 2021.
Business travels: During 2021 we undertook very few business trips due to the pandemic. That resulted in a significant reduction in our tCO2e from air travel (approximately 95%) from 67,2 tCO2e to 3,1 tCO2e compared with 2019.
Purchases: Our impact from purchases decreased by 54% between 2019 and 2021.
