OUR COMMITMENT

Ghelamco Group is one of the 127 Belgian companies that has successfully joined the SBTi. Our commitment is as follows:

Ghelamco Group has its emissions reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative as consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. The targets covering greenhouse gas emissions from Ghelamco Group’s operations (scopes 1 and 2) is consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5°C, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement. The SBTi specifies that a reduction of at least 42% is needed to stay within the Paris targets. We are committed to surpass the SBTi recommendations and achieve at least a 60% reduction in scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 with 2021 as the reference year.


OUR ACTIONS

In order to achieve these ambitious targets Ghelamco Group will gradually implement the following reduction measures:

  1. Gradual electrification of company car fleet in Belgium, where this is the largest source of emissions for our Belgian operations.
  2. Move our offices in Poland by 2027 to a new building which will be fossil-free and powered by 100% solar electricity produced by a Ghelamco developed solar farm.
