Fuels for heating

Water and waste-water

Emissions

Solvents are relevant when more than 10 litres of solvent per year dissolves in the company (e.g. at painters or printing offices). Refrigerant is relevant for all companies with cooling installations and/or air conditioning with a content of more than 10 kg coolant.

Commercial waste

Commercial waste are non-hazardous waste streams like unsorted industrial waste, paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, wood, greenwaste etc. Dependent of the type of contract you have and the way of collecting the waste, you need the following data:

With collection on demand and/or when the waste is weighted, you can ask for a annual overview from your waste collector(s).

Hazardous waste

With hazardous waste you can think of oil-containing waste, paint-containing waste, solvent-containing waste, cleaning cloths, spray cans, fluorescent tubes, batteries, specific hospital waste etc.

Hazardous waste will be collected at irregular times, the time of collection can vary during the year.

Visitors' traffic

This theme is mainly intended for companies with a large amount of visitors like carecenters, museums, festivals and theatres.

Carbon compensation

Carbon offset means that you will compensate a part of your environmental impact (like the CO2 emission which contributes to the global warming) by for example planting a forest or execute a sustainable energyproject. This compensation can be entered in the Envirometer by revealing the tab 'Carbon offset' via 'Finetuning'

Stock acquisition

You can track all kinds of stock acquisition streams in the Envirometer. However for calculating the environmental impact, only the stock acquisition of paper will be taken into account.
