Eneco Aims for One Megaton Carbon Reduction by 2030
Eneco’s CO2 emissions will be reduced by one megaton through joint initiatives across scopes 1, 2 and 3 by 2030.
This is part of a broader 10-year agreement between Capgemini and Eneco, an energy company, to accelerate Eneco’s transition towards sustainable energy, and help meet its ambition of becoming carbon-neutral by 2035.
Both companies will explore the impact of engineering, digital, data & AI, business technology and platforms on reducing Scope 1, 2, and 3 CO2 emissions.
Capgemini’s work with Eneco will focus on business model, process, and technology innovation and is expected to contribute approximately 17% towards Eneco’s 2030 carbon reduction goal.
“We strive to actively work with all players across the entire value chain to achieve our energy transition targets. This commitment with our partner Capgemini is the first concrete example of the way we want to move forward. Capgemini’s technology and innovation capabilities, as well as its global reach, will enable this positive and significant step on our journey towards net zero,” said Erwin Leeuwis, Director of Corporate Strategy at Eneco in a statement.
Capgemini and Eneco assessed the potential of a number of innovations that focus mainly on Scope 3, with a comprehensive carbon calculation approach. Eneco’s Scope 3 emissions represent almost 90% of its total output and are generated from indirect sources within its supply chain, such as purchased goods and services, distribution, transportation, the use of sold products, and end-of-life treatment of sold products. Reducing the carbon footprint of Eneco’s partners and customers is key, for example through radical electrification, phasing-out natural gas, and accelerating sustainable heat solutions.
Eneco intends to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by curtailing its IT footprint, creating more energy-efficient offices, and a reduction of CO2 in Eneco’s own energy supply and production chain.
