Environmental responsibility

A standardised reporting system
Measures have been taken to promote environmental responsibility throughout the Solar Group. By establishing a new  reporting  system and setting specific goals, Solar now has the possibility to improve our way of measuring and set goals for reducing our co2 emission in Solar Group

The world faces environmental challenges in the climate area. With businesses, including Solar, relying on natural resources for multiple reasons, new corporate efforts are needed to address environmental responsibilities.

As a result, in Solar, we actively prepare for a more sustainable future and focus on becoming part of the solution instead of only part of the problem. Therefore, we keep a constant focus on reducing our co2 emissions.

Since 2010, Solar has reported our emission to the Carbon Disclosure Project. Therefore, Solar has established a standardised reporting system for our CO2 emissions.

A clear agenda is necessary
In the beginning of 2016, we implemented a new strategy for carbon disclosure in all our subsidiaries in order to reach specific goals. The strategy is that
1) all company cars must be in CO2 energy class A or B, electrical or hybrid and with room for minimum 4 persons,
2) all trucks live up to European emission standards when agreements with transportation companies have been made,
3) to set focus on our use of water, and
4) make recycling and separation of waste part of our goals.

The strategy is still to set focus on data collection and getting as close as possible to actual emission. We have started setting focus on waste handling and will try to set common standard throughout the Solar Group to be able to measure how good we are at sorting the waste and follow the way from pickup at Solar to recycling.

Carbon Disclosure Project

Solar has been an active signatory to the UN Global Compact since 2009. This means that Solar has established a reporting system for activities covered by Global Compact's 10 principles. By signing up for Global Compact, Solar meets the reporting requirements of the Danish authorities applicable as of 2009.            


Therefore, we hereby state the figures which were reported in our Climate Change 2018 report as of 31.07.2019:

 

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions

E1-A - scope 1- direct GHG emission:

723 tonnes CO2e

 

E1-B - scope 2 - electricity indirect GHG emissions:

2,872 tonnes CO2e

 

E1-C - scope 3 - other indirect GHG emissions:

28,072 tonnes CO2e

 

Total emission:

31,667 tonnes CO2e

                                                                                               

Emission Intensity

E2-A - GHG emission the company emits per Euro of revenue produced:

Intensity metric: 0.0000024

 

Energy Usage

E3-A - Direct energy consumption
Measures the total amount of direct energy by a company or corporate enterprise:

3,928 / 14,141 MWH/GJ

 

E3-B - Indirect Energy consumption
Measures the total amount of indirect energy by a company or corporate enterprise:

48,793 / 1,756,573 MWH/GJ

                                                                                               

Energy Intensity

E4-B - Direct energy consumed annually per full-time employee (Scope 1):

0.25 tonnes CO2e

 

It is still a challenge to get the needed information from distributors because not all of them are able to take out these specific figures. Data collection and reporting supported by external advisor.
