Trends and updates CO2 emissions DDM!

Sustainability is an important topic within DDM. Trends and developments in this area are closely monitored. Consequently, DDM is a member of the VERAS CO2 sector initiative.

The CO2 emissions of DDM Demontage B.V. and DDM Belgium decreased in 2021 compared to 2022. The CO2 emissions of DDM Deutschland increased in 2022 compared to 2021. However, this can be explained by the fact that DDM Deutschland had a strong increase in turnover in 2022 compared to 2021.

Other trends can be observed with regard to sustainability. For example, a 23-tonne electric crane has recently been running in Terneuzen, and electric equipment is currently running in Cologne! DDM Deutschland in particular is currently busy, and very well engaged on the subject of 'circularity'. On various projects, bricks and clinkers are carefully removed from buildings, these bricks and clinkers are then collected by a third party and reused in new construction.

To reduce CO2 emissions within DDM, reduction targets have been drawn up. The reduction targets are shown below:

DDM Demontage B.V. wants:

  • 100% less gas consumption in De Meern by 2026 compared to 2021;
  • 10% reduction in emissions from machinery and equipment by 2026 compared to 2021;
  • 10% reduction in emissions from the vehicle fleet in 2026 compared to 2021;
  • Wants percentage of electric cars increased to 10%.

DDM Deutschland GmbH wants:

  • 10% reduction in emissions from machinery and equipment in 2026 compared to 2021;
  • 10% reduction in emissions from the vehicle fleet in 2026 compared to 2021.

DDM Belgium wants:

  • 10% reduction in emissions from the office building in 2026 compared to 2021;
  • 10% reduction in emissions from the vehicle fleet in 2026 compared to 2021;
  • 10% reduction in emissions from machinery and equipment by 2026 compared to 2021.

Curious about exact figures on emissions? And for example how much energy is generated by DDM's solar panels? And what exactly is the CO2 sector initiative of VERAS? Then read the file 'DDM Sustainability Report 2021-2026' on the website, under the heading 'sustainability'.
