Environment & Climate
In 2020, for the first time, we compiled a carbon footprint for 2018 based on the Green House Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) - in the mandatory areas of Scopes 1 and 2 as well as the optional Scope 3. Based on the carbon footprint determined, we developed a cross-site climate strategy for the German companies Immobilien Scout GmbH, Scout24 SE and FLOWFACT GmbH. Our approach: avoid, reduce, compensate. The previous goal of our climate strategy was to reduce our absolute emissions by 60 percent by 2025 compared to the base year 2018 and to compensate for the remaining unavoidable emissions by investing in certified climate protection projects. By 2020, we had already succeeded in reducing our emissions by around 60 percent to 2,423 metric tons of CO2 compared to 6,123 metric tons in 2018.
This is why in 2022 we are reviewing our climate strategy: We want to track our emissions more closely, integrate new sites and set ourselves ambitious targets for further reducing our carbon footprint.
