How do companies comply with the various legal requirements regarding climate and energy?

As part of the Environmental and Sustainability Management Day 2024 of the VNU Association for Sustainability and Environmental Management e. V. in Frankfurt a.M., Jana Deurer presented the project “Further development of technical principles for environmental and climate management and greenhouse gas neutrality of companies”, which IREES GmbH is working on together with the Research Center for Energy Economics and GUTcert GmbH.

The aim of the project is to develop guidelines to help companies meet the requirements of regulatory law and greenhouse gas neutrality standards.

With the help of a survey, the participants had the opportunity to name existing challenges in greenhouse gas accounting and to express their wishes as to how politics can support companies on their way to climate neutrality.

Small spoiler: Challenges exist in particular in terms of data availability, and the requirements for policy can be summarized under simplification, standardization, reliability and promotion!
