As a part of its Sustainability Program, MAKINEN initiated a partnership with Reforest to calculate the carbon footprint for Jan 1, 2021 – Dec 31, 2021. This is the first time the company to measure its CO2 emissions.
The calculation of the greenhouse gas emissions and the carbon footprint follows the guidelines and standards of the GHG protocol. The functional scoping of the calculation is based on emissions caused by activities under the company’s control, i.e., emissions the company can impact through its operations.
The greenhouse gas emissions generated are classified into Scope 1 (direct emissions), Scope 2 (indirect emissions), and Scope 3 (other indirect emissions) under the GHG Protocol. Scope 2 carbon footprint is 0 because the electrical energy purchased by our company is 100 % renewable. Scope 3 emissions occur in the company’s value chain and can be included in the calculation on a case-by-case basis.
The results were used as a base to prepare a carbon roadmap with an action plan. Using the calculation results, the company can develop its operations in an even lower emission direction in the future. The figures for 2021 will be used as a comparison year in future calculations.
“Our main target is to be carbon-neutral by 2028, within GHG protocol Scope 1 and 2. However, Scope 3 – the value chain emissions from business travel, logistics, and transportation – generate a significant share of the total emissions”, says Kirsi Orava, VP, Sustainability at MAKINEN. “To lower the carbon footprint of these activities, we need to work closely with our customers, suppliers, and subcontractors for local sourcing of materials and workforce. The key factor here is the early planning of projects: when we have enough time to plan the material and workforce flow, we can reduce unnecessary travel, transportation, and cargo. We look forward to a future where the shipbuilding operations’ carbon footprint is also discussed and considered in all phases of project planning and execution.”
