Reducing Rebel's carbon footprint

‘Practice what you preach’ is a common motto at Rebel. That’s why we decided to evaluate our climate performance against the internationally recognized CO2 performance ladder.

The challenge

Rebel aims to reduce its CO2 emissions with 49% by 2030. As data-driven sustainability experts, we know we can only give meaning to these words by collecting and analyzing an awful lot of data. As you may read in our CO2 emissions report of 2019 below, data provides an insight into our energy consumption, our flying behavior and our commuting patterns.

The approach

The road to reduction: Now that we know our patterns, we can start to plan ahead. A group of passionate Rebels heading the green frontier initiated a number of task forces in order to reduce Rebel’s carbon footprint, without having a negative impact on Rebel’s growth ambitions ➜

Do you want to know more? Feel free to download the report (for now only available in Dutch) or contact one of the green Rebels, see below.

  1. Reducing the Rebel energy consumption by monitoring energy parameters on a weekly basis and by switching to green and sustainable energy at the Rebel offices.
  2. Reducing car-related CO2 emissions per FTE by analyzing commuting behavior and by promoting greener ways of traveling.
  3. Reducing CO2 emissions per FTE caused by flying, by analyzing flight data per entity, spotting trends, and investigating key drivers (pre- and post-Covid-19).
