The longer a company is active on the CO2 Performance Ladder, the more measures it will have implemented. This is also visible in the figures. The number of planned measures per organization is also increasing. This indicates that organizations continue to look for reduction options and register them on the measure list.
Figure 1 Measures per organization
The figures show that the number of organizations is growing, taking measures aimed at the implementation of projects. This is clearly visible in the Material and Logistics & Transport activities. The number of organizations taking measures in these activities has grown much faster in the last 2 years than the number of organizations participating in the Ladder. This is a sign that, when choosing measures, organizations place more emphasis on measures that are directly relevant to the projects.
Some measures are related to government policy with regard to energy saving, such as the Recognized Measures for offices and industrial buildings and the energy label for offices.
For the Recognized Measures it applies that organizations in specific business categories must demonstrate that they have implemented these measures. These are obvious measures with a short payback period (less than 5 years). Nevertheless, the number of certified organizations that show that it is implementing these Recognized Measures is still relatively limited.
The same applies to the Energy Label for offices. By 2023, all offices must have at least Energy Label C. The number of certified organizations that are already at this level is relatively limited. Only 20% of the organizations report on the Energy Label, 16% have Energy Label C or better.
