We have published our CSR report for the seventh consecutive year.
We report on our CO2 footprint, staff development, our social involvement and the CO2 reductions realised in our sustainable projects.
In 2015, we once again increased the number of projects in which energy efficiency was a core aspect. At a side event during the COP21 Conference of Paris, our French colleagues demonstrated the possibilities for achieving zero energy consumption by buildings, presenting ‘Maison de l’Île de France’, a zero energy students residence built on the International University Campus of Paris. Our German colleagues completed a ‘Plus energy’ office building in Münster for LVM (a large German insurance company).
These examples show how we design innovative sustainable energy solutions as One Firm. As a result, we are proud to be able to state that our internal benchmark, the ‘Deerns Multiplier’ has increased to 1,249: this is, briefly put, the amount of CO2 saved by our design work divided by our own overall CO2 emissions as a firm.
Over the past year we managed to reduce our overall carbon footprint to 4.33 tonnes per FTE which means we are on track regarding our 2017 goal of 3.8 tonnes per FTE.
