Together with the DUMONT Group, ELAINE technologies GmbH is once again setting an example for climate protection: ELAINE has been awarded the ClimatePartner certificate after ClimatePartner scrutinised the company in detail. With this label, ELAINE commits itself to climate protection and emphasises its sustainability management. 

ELAINE and Dumont are ClimatePartner-certified. This means that greenhouse gas emissions have been calculated and reduction targets defined for all companies in the Dumont Group. Furthermore, the companies are continuously implementing reductions and are jointly financing five exciting climate protection projects. ELAINE technologies GmbH communicates transparently about these steps with the ClimatePartner-certified label and the associated Climate ID website.

Climate Protection in five steps

Companies that go through the following five steps receive ClimatePartner certification:

  1. Calculate the CO2 footprint
  2. Set reduction targets
  3. Implement reduction measures
  4. Support climate protection projects
  5. Create transparency

By completing the five steps, Dumont and ELAINE have demonstrated a high-level climate protection strategy. The ClimatePartner label certifies the high level of commitment and success in climate protection.

ELAINE technologies GmbH and the DUMONT Group are going through these steps in detail

  1. Together with ClimatePartner, the Corporate Carbon Footpront (CCF), i.e. the CO2 footprint of companies, was calculated.
    The calculation is based on the leading standards of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and the international ISO standards.This includes all emissions from Scope 1 and 2 as well as most emissions from Scope 3. Scope 1 includes emissions from self-generated heating and cooling as well as the vehicle fleet. Scope 2 includes emissions from purchased heat, electricity and cooling.Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions within the value chain.In the context of DUMONT certification, Scope 3 includes, for example, business trips, employee travel or purchased goods and services.
  2. In addition to the level of CO2 emissions, the calculated CCF shows where these are mainly generated and where emissions can be avoided and reduced. Defined reduction targets and the resulting reduction measures are as follows: DUMONT aims to reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 40% by 2030, and Scope 3 emissions by 42%.
  3. The reduction measures corresponding to the reduction targets have been introduced and continuously implemented. ELAINE will also actively procure 100% green electricity by 2030. The CCF is updated annually – this allows the companies in the Group to keep track of their success in reducing emissions and recognise further areas for improvement.
  4. However, there are always remaining emissions that are currently unavoidable.ELAINE and DUMONT are also taking responsibility for these emissions by financially supporting five internationally certified climate protection projects from the ClimatePartner portfolio:
  5. You can use the ClimatePartner-certified label and the associated Climate ID website to transparently track the certification:There you can find out, among other things, which category is certified, which CO2 emissions we take into account in which period and in what amount, which targets for reducing emissions we are committed to, which reduction measures we are implementing to this end and more about the climate protection projects financed.

The certification does not cover indirect emissions generated outside the company, e.g. from the manufacture of raw materials and preliminary products, external logistics and the use and disposal of products or other processes.

All customers of the ELAINE customer engagement platform benefit from the ClimatePartner certification for ELAINE technologies GmbH.
