Alrow Media has a strong focus on sustainability. We cover it constructively and critically in our media, and we facilitate network groups, meetings and events about climate change and sustainability. But we are also aware of the climate impact created by our own business activities. Therefore, since 2021, we have tracked our CO2e emissions, and our ambition is to reduce these emissions and climate impact from our business activities.
The current climate impact report only covers Alrow Media’s Danish companies (Altinget ApS and Mandag Morgen ApS).
To get the best and most valid insights into our climate impact and CO2e emissions, we base our reporting on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG protocol). The GHG Protocol supplies the most widely used greenhouse gas accounting standards and enables us to report on our greenhouse gas emissions in scope 1, 2 and 3. We have chosen to report on all 3 scopes to make sure we get the most valid and transparent foundation for driving positive change. The CO2e emissions are tracked by using the climate reporting platform “the climate compass” (“Klimakompasset”) from the Danish Business Authority (Erhvervsstyrelsen), which is based on the GHG-protocol.
In the first half of 2021, our non-digital business activities such as professional networking groups and physical events were still severely limited by the global covid pandemic. Therefore, 2022 is the first accurate baseline year in the climate impact report with normal business activity across the company. This explains why we see an increase in the total CO2e emissions from 2021 to 2022. However, we also see a reduction in emissions per employee.
