Context: Worldwide, 2015
Challenge: to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of all of Barco’s sites worldwide, starting with the headquarters in Belgium
Partnership: Barco is an international company that designs and develops networked visualization products for the Entertainment, Enterprise and Healthcare markets. In line with its CSR-strategy, Barco invited CO2logic to map the company’s worldwide direct and indirect impact (up to scope 3), propose quick wins to reduce energy use and emissions and to provide advice on a long-term environmental strategy. This study included Barco’s site emissions, logistical activities, business travel and even home-work commuting.
Results: CO2logic’s analysis showed that freight and mobility are responsible for nearly all emissions by Barco. Since a few years already, the company is making efforts to reduce this amount: encouraging commuting by bike, work from home, using public transport for longer distances and greening the car fleet. In 2016 the company will centralize its activities in Belgium in a new and more sustainable HQ and is currently investigating climate-friendly alternatives for its long haul transport.
