Enviromental award from the city of Vienna for Kapsch TrafficCom
The City of Vienna has honored Kapsch TrafficCom as “OekoBusiness Wien 2021”. The global provider of intelligent traffic solutions took part with its operations in Vienna's ÖKOPROFIT (Ecoprofit) environmental service program. The program aims to help companies reduce waste, raw material, and water and energy consumption at business locations in Vienna.
“The Oekoprofit program is a great start on the road to become a more sustainable company,” says Juliane Höbarth, Head of KapschTrafficCom's Environmental Sustainability Program. “It helps us identify the biggest sources of emissions in our company at the Vienna operating site and understand how to reduce them.”
Experts examine environmentally friendly business practices.
In a series of workshops, the Ecoprofit experts from the environmental consultancy Denkstatt worked with Kapsch TrafficCom to analyze carefully selected environmental data and identify potential savings and improvement measures. “We learned that in the industrial sector, the product life cycle accounts for the largest share of CO2 emissions. That's why we focus on evaluating the CO2 footprint of our products and the emissions savings potential of our portfolio,” reports Höbarth.
Kapsch TrafficCom is “OekoBusiness Vienna 2021”.
The project team presented the results of the program in the form of a report and a presentation to the expert commission of Oekoprofit. Kapsch TrafficCom was then recognized by the Advisory Board for its commitment to sustainable business practices by the City of Vienna as “OekoBusiness Wien 2021”. The certificate is valid for a period of one year.
