8% of the global final energy demand and 7% of the energy sector’s CO₂ emissions come from iron & steel production. For this production, we currently mostly use primary materials as ingredients. But mining these materials heavily exhausts the planet’s resources. Imagine the huge chunk we can take out of this impact- by recycling metal waste into new secondary materials. The impact benefits of secondary metal materials? Moxba-Metrex has the answers…
We love our asphalt in the Netherlands- and for good reason. The high quality, durability, and driving comfort speak for themselves. As an indispensable part of our infrastructure, asphalt is of course used very intensively. But what exactly is the environmental footprint of asphalt? What role does the Dutch Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) play in creating greener roads?
Introducing the new wave of enlightenment. Environmental scores have become a crucial requirement for suppliers to deliver in public tendering processes. Which means: time to act. This is the story of how the Dutch public lighting sector got acquainted with circularity by measuring the environmental footprint of their products.
According to the 2015 Paris Agreement we have to halve our carbon emissions by 2030. So- where do you start? When measuring your carbon footprint, you categorize your emissions into three scopes: scope 1, 2, and 3. We previously discussed scope 1 emissions in our first blog about measuring your carbon footprint. Today it’s time for scope 2 emissions. What are they and how can I report them?
The EN15804 is one of the most important sustainability standards for creating EPD’s in the construction sector in the European Union. But it’s changed- and there’s a revised version now; the EN15804 + A2. Especially in the Netherlands we see an increase in demand for reporting on this revised norm. This results in mandatory changes in conducting EPD’s. How can you be best prepared?
