The DFGE Climate Strategy – Climate Neutrality on a Scientific Basis

Climate Strategy

DFGE_Webinar_Icon   Climate Strategy & Climate Neutrality: More than just a marketing label – from strategy to execution

Climate Neutrality seems to be a trend – but how can you develop a solid climate strategy and actually work climate neutral?

The development of a science-based climate strategy is integral part of a succesful climate management. The DFGE works as a holistic provider from the calculation of the Carbon Footprint to the certification to the final compensation to specific compensation projects. In combination with a reasoned action plan and concrete actions – which the DFGE defines in a dedicated “Climate Action Plan” – those steps build up the climate strategy of a company to mitigate climate change risks and leverage opportunities at the same time.

Learn more about the best practice on how to execute such a strategy.

Our free webinars consist of the following program items:

  • Get an insight into the most important methodology

Especially under time pressure EcoVadis presents itself as a very complex assessment. The need for high-quality verification documents or policies on all important topics makes it very difficult for newcomers in particular to prioritise the work to be invested. In order to simplify your entry into the assessment process as much as possible, but also to facilitate the qualitative continuation of the assessment against this background, the DFGE, as an official EcoVadis partner, conducts regular webinars to explain the overall EcoVadis concept and answer all common questions.
