SDG 13: Climate action

How do we ensure that the earth remains inhabitable for our children and for subsequent generations? The effects of climate change affect us all. IT can be the engine that acts as a catalyst for sustainable solutions to various climate challenges. Conclusions uses knowledge, services, and innovations to create positive impact.

Conclusion | Climate action


The loss of biodiversity and collapse of ecosystems has a disastrous impact on the world and the economy. We have a moral and economic responsibility to devote ourselves to limiting the negative impact of our operational processes on biodiversity and to make sure that we have a positive impact as well.

Circular economy

Our businesses that produce devices themselves or work with hardware directly have implemented waste management and recycling processes. The impact that we, as an IT service provider, have on the use of raw materials in the chain and the extent to which we can help to reduce this impact is part of the agenda for the coming years.

Long-term vision 2030 on environmental impact

Conclusion has been monitoring environmental impact since 2008. We know the level of the CO2 emissions of our own operational processes and have a good idea of the chain. In the coming years, we will intensify our efforts to reduce our emissions. Read our sustainability report to find out about our long-term vision.

Where we’re headed

We know the level of the CO2 emissions caused by our own operational processes and have an increasingly better idea of our chain. To reduce the emissions, we have implemented a variety of measures that will lead to a 60% reduction by 2025 compared with 2016.

But we want to and have to speed things up. We are therefore intensifying our efforts in the coming years with a focus on:

  • Insight into and reduction of emission greenhouse gases in scopes 1, 2 and 3, translated into scientifically based goals.
  • Intensifying the use of real green energy (operational processes and chain).
  • Insight into and improvement, where necessary, of water management and waste in our supply chain and data chain.

Examples of programmes that contribute to this:

1. Sustainable mobility and fossil-free fleet

Up until 2028, Conclusion will compensate for the fossil emissions of our fleet. On the basis of our sustainable ambitions, we have opted for a completely fossil-free fleet as of 1 January 2028. This will be supplemented by schemes for a lease bike and an ‘OV Vrij’ public transport subscription for all employees.

2. Sustainable accommodation

Conclusion leases all its company premises. This has consequences for the measures we are allowed to take. When furnishing and using our property, we take into consideration the impact on our environment. For example, with a 50% working from home policy. We are exploring networks and innovations that will significantly reduce the emissions from our properties.

3. Zero waste company restaurants

Our aim is to eliminate food waste by 2025. In addition, the food we offer in our company restaurants is healthy and sustainable, with the lowest possible ecological footprint. In order to achieve these objectives, we not only have to change the way we work, but also our mindset.
