Showing transparency is the right way to make a difference. Discover how Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles is taking care of their carbon footprint and leading the way towards decarbonisation
Tackling climate change is an everyday battle that might seem overwhelming. However, this ambitious goal becomes the most likely scenario once businesses work together in the same direction.
Once Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles measured their greenhouse emissions and understood their actual impact as a whole, designing an action plan was just as straightforward. The next step was to set ambitious targets to reduce their footprint and connect with the right partners to make it possible. Now Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles is taking part in cutting the world's emissions to zero.
Every positive action counts, no matter how little. However, climate change needs to be confronted collectively, as many other global challenges humanity has faced in the past. Embracing this approach, the opportunity to involve team members within their company to analyse its impact is priceless. The decision-makers will take climate action by being part of the impact team.

Human activities since the industrial revolution have led to the appearance of new sources of GHGs. Tapio’s all-in-one carbon management solution allows you to estimate the amount of industrial emissions (aka. anthropogenic greenhouse gases) emitted by the activities of your company or organisation.

The first step to compute a carbon report is to target and characterize the possible sources of GHGs emission from the organization. To do so, must be fixed beforehand by the reporting company.
Then, the breakdown of total carbon emissions by scope helps Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles highlight the different hotspots that drive its carbon emissions. To address a problem, you need to be able to understand and measure it.
The Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles has decided to commit itself to the fight against climate change by assessing its greenhouse gas emissions. The following report does not take into account emissions from its network of members (mobility) and from its investments. The aim in the future is to involve its entire network in the fight for the climate, from suppliers to beneficiaries of investments.

The evolution is calculated on the previous year, based on total emissions.
Having an absolute number is complex and most of the time, meaningless. One good way to know where you stand and the way you are headed is to understand your carbon footprint in terms of intensity per employee allowing to track improvements over time even if the company grows.
For Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles, the intensity related to several metrics can be found below.
T CO2 e per Employee
Going a step further in terms of comparison is useful to understand what Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles’s total amount of carbon emissions represents in day-to-day, tangible situations. Knowing how many long haul flights or how many burgers Réseau Entreprendre Bruxelles’s carbon emissions are equal to is another good way to understand its footprint. If you're curious about what a ton of CO₂ represents, read more about it on our blog.
