CO2 Performance Scale

Climate change is one of the main challenges for the construction industry and BESIX Group recognises its utmost urgency. In this context, BESIX Group has distinguished itself for years by an innovative and sustainable approach to its activities.

This approach has been specifically demonstrated since 2011 by its entity in The Netherlands with a ‘Level 5 Certification’, the highest level according to the CO2 Performance Scale.

In 2022, in line with the group’s Energy & Carbon Policy (link), BESIX will extend the scope of this Dutch certification to all activities of its Business Unit Europe, covering Belgium, Luxembourg, France and The Netherlands.

The following Belgian subsidiaries will also join this certification: BESIX Infra, Van den Berg and its subsidiaries BESIX Connect and Appermont, Franki Foundations and its subsidiaries Franki Grondtechnieken BV in The Netherlands and Atlas Fondations in France.

“Our ambition is to reduce the CO2 footprint of our Business Unit Europe by X% by the year X, compared to the reference year 2019. In order to meet this target, underlying reduction targets are defined separately for each of our companies, affiliates or subsidiary in the scope, taking into account the specific context and realities for each one. At the same time, by becoming a member of the Belgian Alliance for Climate Action, our group has demonstrated its commitment to defining Science Based Targets (SBT) by the year X.”
