Internal carbon footprint

Carbon Reduction Program

Though it is not the most significant part of our overall emissions, we still aim to reduce our internal carbon footprint as much as possible.

ALD has a 2014-2020 carbon reduction program and has made a commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 25% per occupant in 2020 compared to 2014.

The very high degree of internationalization of ALD means that a significant part of our GHG emissions comes from business travel, particularly air travel. As part of our commitment, we have updated our travel policy to promote other means of travel rather than airplanes; as well as a strong incentive for audio or videoconferencing meetings whenever possible.

For commuting related emissions, targeted actions are deployed to promote alternative solutions to the individual use of vehicles. At ALD headquarters and in many subsidiaries, a car-sharing service is in place. A growing number of Group entities are also implementing home office solutions.
