Carbon reduction

Van Lanschot Kempen’s environmental management isn’t just geared towards improving processes and systems, but also seeks to change the awareness and behaviour of individual employees. In the past few years, much has been achieved on both points. To ensure that we continue to focus on what matters most, in 2019 we quantified a comprehensive carbon footprint in keeping with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Our carbon footprint shows up areas of significant emissions and helps us to identify carbon reduction measures. At Van Lanschot Kempen, the biggest causes of carbon emissions were lease cars, business air travel and heating.

Carbon reduction targets

We aim to cut our carbon emissions per FTE by an average 2.5% a year in the 2018-2025 period.

Carbon reduction measures

We made a clear contribution towards a carbon neutral economy in the 2011-18 period, 2019 itself was a year with a decrease in our absolute carbon emissions to 4,220 tonnes (2018: 4,680 tonnes). Further details on the carbon emissions per sector and the carbon reduction measures adopted can be found in the documents below.
