Objective of cooperation 

 

As ComAp falls under the CSRD scope, the collaboration aimed to enhance the company’s ESG efforts, ensuring alignment with legislative requirements and proposed the vision for company’s ESG strategy.  


"Just as we want to lead by example within our industry in terms of energy transition, we also want to lead by example in terms of ESG compliance. We wanted to be ahead of the regulation in order to learn, improve and achieve excellence, and we are happy to have found Gree0meter, who proved to be the right partner for us. The issue is new and dynamic, so we needed to be flexible and collaborative, and that worked very well with Green0meter."
Barbora Vajnarová, Marketing Communications & CSR Manager, ComAp

 

Green0meter provided the following services: 

 

  • Complete CSRD preparation, EU Taxonomy mapping, and Double materiality assessment. 

  • Company Carbon Footprint calculation for Scopes 1, 2, and 3. 

  • Product Carbon Footprint calculation. 

  • Proposal of sustainability vision, initiatives and KPIs 

 

Project Duration and Flow 

 

The six-month collaboration involved data collection, taxonomy mapping, and ESG strategy formulation. Despite the anticipated challenges, data collection from both HQ and subsidiaries was accomplished in under two months. Alizée Dubois, CSR Manager at ComAp, praised Green0meter's user-friendly platform and support. 

 

The project faced challenges, particularly in mapping the environmental impact of products within the EU Taxonomy, due to indirect contact with end-users. This required a meticulous approach to categorizing each product's application and sustainability quotient. The results sparked internal discussions across ComAp's global branches, highlighting differing perceptions of sustainable investments. 

 

Before EFRAG published its guidelines, ComAp, with Green0meter's assistance, proactively performed the double materiality assessment. This effort, supported by Karel Kotoun, laid the groundwork for the ESG strategy and identified critical data points for the CSRD report. The stakeholder engagement initiated by this assessment was particularly valuable. 



Key Results and Insights

 

  • Emissions breakdown: Analysis showed 0.9% in Scope 1, 1.2% in Scope 2, and 97.9% in Scope 3 emissions, underscoring the importance of Scope 3 tracking. 

  • Taxonomy-eligible products: ComAp is poised to increase revenue from such businesses, aligning with their strategy for sustainable energy control solutions. 

  • Health and Safety: ComAp's procedures and training highlighted their excellence in this area. However, a need for improvement in Diversity indicators was identified, a common issue in engineering sectors. This will be a focus for ComAp’s HR team in 2024. 

  • CSRD leadership: ComAp is well-positioned as a CSRD implementation leader, thanks to its transition strategy and Green0meter’s support. Green0meter's digital platform, noted for its intuitiveness and comprehensive coverage, was particularly lauded. 

 

Evaluation of cooperation

 

Green0meter helped define our sustainability vision and key E-S-G focus areas. We see transformation potential in our value chain, from quick-win actions like reducing product packaging and switching to biodegradable materials, to more complex ones like product circularity. The analysis revealed that the most significant GHG emissions contributor is the production of our controllers by suppliers, guiding our decarbonization initiatives towards specific, influential suppliers. Green0meter’s recommendations spurred immediate internal discussions and concrete actions to reduce our environmental impact.” 
Alizée Dubois, CSR Manager, ComAp
