Boskalis jaarverslagen 2011

Level 3 on CO2 performanceladder in the Netherlands

The CO2 performance ladder, an initiative by large public-sector principals in the Netherlands, was developed as a tool for encouraging companies that take part in public tenders to reduce the amount of CO2 they produce. The greater a company’s efforts to cut back its carbon emissions, the better their chances of being awarded a work or order. Moreover, public clients are prepared to give a discount of up to 10% on the tender price to suppliers who are certified at the highest level of the CO2 performance ladder.
In 2011 Boskalis was certified in the Netherlands for the requirements applying to level 3 of this standard. Boskalis also involves its employees in its emissions-saving efforts by providing a dashboard on the intranet to make it clear to them what their own impact is on CO2 emissions.
