RAMPAs CCF - Corporate Carbon Footprint

At RAMPA, sustainability and being responsible towards our planet is not a passing fad or a current trend. Quite the opposite: RAMPA embraces the wide range of possibilities available and has for decades attached considerable importance to ensuring that the company’s processes are designed to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible. There are several ways in which we do this, in line with our climate strategy, which we would like to tell you about in more detail.

RAMPA has embarked on the path towards a neutral carbon footprint! In this respect, we have already reached the first major milestones and developed further initiatives.

Climate neutrality essentially means that our corporate actions do not increase the amount of climate-damaging greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. RAMPA is especially focused on preventing the climate-damaging gases from being emitted by us.

To reduce and offset RAMPA’s operational CO2 emissions* efficiently, we have our CO2 footprint balanced by the experienced partner FORLIANCE  based on the so-called Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol of the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development).

In accordance with the GHG Protocol, an organisation’s emissions may be divided into three areas, known as scopes. As a minimum requirement, the areas scope 1 and 2 are to be highlighted for the establishment of the Corporate Carbon Footprint. However, as RAMPA is not satisfied with this, further seven categories (out of a total of 15) from scope 3 were accounted for.

Overview of scopes according to GHG Protocol

Scope 1: This includes all emissions that arise directly in the company, i.e. from sources that the company either owns or directly controls (e.g. heating systems, vehicle fleet, air conditioning systems, etc.).

Scope 2: This includes all indirect emissions generated by the company’s energy supply (from external sources) (e.g. purchased electricity and thermal energy).

Scope 3: This includes all other emissions arising from the company’s activities but owned or controlled by a third party (e.g. transport, purchased goods and services, waste, business travel/commuting, etc.).

An overview shows the three scopes according to the GHG protocol including explanations, which RAMPA considers for the CO2 balancing.

Measures based on the CO2 balances

For emissions that we could not avoid, we have developed a strategy by compensating for 100% of the CO2 emissions caused in Scopes 1 and 2 through investment in FORLIANCE's climate protection project "CO2OL Tropical Mix". In the long term, we are working to further reduce the offset emissions.

CO2OL Tropical Mix: Sustainable forestry and cocoa production in Panama

The CO2OL Tropical Mix climate conservation project supported by RAMPA concerns the reforestation of land in Panama that has been degraded by livestock farming. 20 native tree species are being replanted and 30 others protected. The goal is to gradually restore and preserve mixed forests with a healthy forest ecosystem across the 13,385 hectare area.

The project promotes sustainable forestry in line with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) guidelines and UTZ and EU organic certified cocoa production, which contribute significantly to the protection of biodiversity while improving the economic and social situation of the rural population. More than 150 new jobs were created with prospects, sustainable sources of income and fair working conditions. Additionally, integrated capacity building and environmental education programmes and support for local schools form an integral part of the project.

CO2OL Tropical Mix is one of the first land use and forestry projects to be awarded the prestigious Gold Standard certification. The project has already offset a total of 3,379,220 tonnes of CO2.

RAMPA's unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions from Scope 1 and 2 were fully offset as follows:

  • CCF 2020: 363 metric tons of CO2 equivalents through the CO2OL Tropical Mix climate protection project
  • CCF 2021: 199 metric tons of CO2 equivalents through the CO2OL Tropical Mix climate protection project
  • CCF 2022: 187 metric tons of CO2 equivalents through the CO2OL Tropical Mix climate protection project
  • *In addition to CO2 there are many other greenhouse gases, such as methane, which also significantly contribute to climate change. Since2 is regarded as the best-known greenhouse gas, we refer to CO2-emissions on our website in simplified terms (technically, we otherwise refer to CO2– equivalents), whereby the term is synonymous with all climate-relevant emissions.
