Dietsmann’s global objective is to reduce the CO2 emissions resulting from the Group’s activities. Towards this end a survey to collect initial measurements has been conducted among all Dietsmann subsidiaries. The results will serve as a basis for evaluating, prioritizing and measuring emissions that contribute towards the greenhouse effect.
The use of company vehicles generates a substantial portion of our carbon footprint. Measuring the CO2 emissions produced by our fleet was, therefore, a key component of the initial survey. To help minimize the impact of vehicle use on the environment and increase drivers’ awareness of the issue, a second survey was conducted at all sites and a set of rules for driving was drawn-up. These rules form the basis of a new driving code that will encourage ‘eco-driving’.
