KPN Emission Reduction Meter

Responsible energy use is one of the main pillars of the corporate social responsibility programme of the Dutch telecommunications and ICT service provider KPN. KPN commissioned Ecofys from 2008 onwards to assist them in the process of setting both ambitious and realistic goals on energy and climate saving solutions. As a result, new goals were published in its 2008 Social Responsibility Report. The project gave KPN the tools to implement performance measures on carbon emissions and energy use in their organisation.

Ecofys successfully supported KPN to become a WWF Climate Saver in 2011. This support included: calculating/validating KPN's baseline carbon emissions, drafting a monitoring protocol for tracking carbon emissions over time, identifying and quantifying carbon abatement measures, creating a roadmap for carbon emission reduction, constructing reference scenarios for carbon emissions for the business and benchmarking the carbon emission reduction goals and achievements of KPN with other telecom companies.  Finally Ecofys supported the board of KPN in the decision process, and in communicating the ambitious WWF Climate Saver targets (internally and externally).

After successfully supporting KPN in becoming WWF Climate Savers, KPN and Ecofys have launched the KPN Reduction Meter a tool which enables organisations to calculate business benefits and greenhouse gas emission reductions of ICT products.
