Positive Impact to Climate through our services.

One of our duties is to encourage and support our customers to make better choices, taking into account the environment.

Positive Impact to Climate through our services

The best way for us to influence the environment is through our services. That is why we strive in all of our expert work to provide solutions that reduce carbon footprints, for example by improving the energy efficiency of the buildings. Our positive impact to climate can be measured by our carbon handprint. The carbon handprint is used to reflect the climate benefits of using a product or service, as opposed to the carbon footprint, which describes the negative climate impacts of a company’s operations.

Our own carbon footprint

Our goal is to be carbon neutral in terms of our direct emissions and purchasest energy emissions (scope 1 and 2) by 2025. We have created a roadmap that represents our actions in 2021-2025 for reducing our carbon footprint.

Raksystems’ operations are the provision of services, so our carbon footprint consists mainly of the office’s energy consumption and travel. In 2022, our total carbon footprint was 600 tCO2e in Finland and emissions per employee decreased 18 % from the previous year. In Sweden, the carbon footprint was 207 tCO2e. The signicantly smaller carbon footprint in Sweden is due to lower emissions of electricity production.

Our own carbon handprint

During 2022, our energy related services* contributed to energy reduction up to 58 GWh for our clients.

This means that those services reduced customers’ energy emissions up to 8,989 tCO2e.

Our new Geolo-solution delivered renewable energy to customers for a total emissions reduction of 338 tCO2e in 2022. Among this, EcoReal Oy’s energy renovations reduced customers’ emissions up to 66,700 tCO2e in 2022.

Based on these indicators, our total carbon handprint was more than 76,000 tCO2e.

This means that our positive
climate impact is 94 times bigger than our own carbon footprint.

*Including energy audits in Finland during 2022 (excluding EcoReal)

EU Taxonomy

The EU taxonomy is a classification system that sets out a list of the economic activities that cause the most emissions and sets criteria for sustainability activities. Raksystems’ services are mostly consulting, which does not itself cause emissions. Only 5,5% of Raksystems’ turnover is EU taxonomy eligible and 70% of eligible services is related to professional energy services.

We have identified our professional services related to energy performance, energy renovations as well as our Geolo innovation to produce heat and cool from geothermal energy falling within the Taxonomy scope. We have also assessed the alignment of each activity within the Taxonomy scope. Our target is to improve our EU taxonomy alignment during 2023.

We help our customers to support environment
and work against climate change

We aim to help our customers to reduce their climate emissions as well as to support biodiversity.

We also aim to achieve our own carbon neutrality by 2025.

Our goal is to measure our positive impact on the environment, our stakeholders and society as a whole through annual sustainability reporting.
