Every month, The Groundbreakers puts an inspiring initiative, product or company in the spotlight. By sharing knowledge and inspiration, we want to stimulate sustainable developments and we hope to contribute to the greening of the business community. This time we would like to highlight Envirometer. An online monitoring tool to map the CO2 and environmental impact of your organization

What exactly can you do with the environmental barometer?

Calculating CO2 emissions is very extensive: where do you start? The environmental barometer helps to measure this. You create a CO2 footprint, in which all important factors are taken into account. Think, for example, of electricity, fuels, water and waste. In addition to the common factors, you can add many different indicators to the environmental barometer and thus create a relevant composition for your organization. For example, you can also enter data about Corporate Social Responsibility, such as absenteeism due to illness and education.

You get to see the results in graphs and key figures, which really say something about the environmental impact of your company. These models make it clear at a glance where the most profit can be made for the organization. By entering and updating the numbers annually, you can monitor the improvements, set goals or, for example, compare your organization with the rest of the industry.

The meter also helps by showing a list of measures with actions that you can apply to become more sustainable. There you will also see the legal measures that you are obliged to comply with in the Netherlands. Consider, for example, a certain level of energy savings and waste separation.

Added value for sustainable brand activation agency The Groundbreakers

The Groundbreakers likes to use the Envirometer to gain insight into the areas where we can improve. Because we started entering data in 2019, we already have a lot of data to compare and see how we are really doing. And then we can set even more beautiful and ambitious goals, to continuously improve ourselves on the basis of sustainability. Quantifying and monitoring our own sustainability goals provides a grip on the impact of our activities. For example, we can keep track of whether we are making sufficient progress to operate in a CO2 positive manner in 2024.

Interested in working? Apply now!

The tool is a handy tool to find out where you stand and where you can go. So even if you don't have very ambitious goals (yet) or if you want to apply changes immediately, you can use the tool for more insight. And if you are still shocked by the numbers, you can of course always take action.. Together towards a more sustainable world!
