Our carbon footprint
Our business, our responsibility
Although greenhouse gases do occur naturally, human activity contributes a great deal to greenhouse gas emissions. At HASLE Refractories, we are aware that our activities have an impact on the environment — or in other words: A carbon footprint. As a first step to reducing our CO2-emission, we have calculated our CO2-footprint based on our business activities in 2019. Measuring our carbon emissions is an important first step towards reducing them in the future, and the numbers below are the baseline for our continued efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. Summarising the numbers, we can conclude that we emit 23.5 kg CO2 when producing a tonne, and that our production has an annual CO2-emission of 175.74 tonnes.
Scope 1: Direct emissions from fuel consumption for refractories production and emissions from company owned vehicles.
Scope 2: Indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity consumed in the company’s owned equipment.
Scope 3: Other indirect emissions assessed (transport related activities throughout supply chain and employee transportation in non-company owned vehicles/vessels).
Note: Scope 3 is reported on basis of the biggest sources to emissions within the scope, therefore, extraction and production of raw materials are excluded.
