CO2 NEUTRAL PRODUCTION

Since 1.1.2016, dade design produces CO2 neutral and neutralizes all CO2 emissions, from production to delivery to the customer. dade design works with a material that has a significant CO2 emission: concrete. Its components are water, sand, gravel, cement and chemical additives.

Since our concrete plant is located in the Rhine delta, we can source most of the raw materials from the immediate vicinity. However, our cement comes from Germany. There it is extracted from limestone by burning it at about 1200 degrees in ovens. This process releases around 44kg of CO2 per 100kg of cement.

We live in a time when the topic of the environment occupies a significant place in our thinking and acting, we want to keep the world worth living for future generations. In Germany, plats work with good filter systems - whereas, for example, in Africa, massive cement plants blow the exhaust gases practically unfiltered into our world.

dade design produces CO2 neutral and neutralises all CO2 emissions.

SUSTAINABILITY IS PART OF THE DADE DESIGN DNA

Innovation and sustainability are not empty phrases for us, but part of our DNA. That is why we determine the CO2 emissions of every order produced including transport to the end customer.

The key is to reduce the output from the beginning. For example, we use a heat pump and eco-friendly electric forklift trucks, dispose of the formwork wood in the local heating plant with state-of-the-art filters, and rely on a partner with sophisticated fleet management.

We do not stop reducing output in our production and pointing out the massive environmental sins of global cement manufacturers. We go one step further.

FOR EACH CUSTOMER COMMISSION WE BUY A CO2 CERTIFICATE AND NEUTRALIZE THE EMISSIONS

In 2016, we emitted 46 tonnes of CO2. For the neutralization three projects were available. In a voting, 60% of all customers have opted for the following project. As of May 1, 2017, we neutralized our CO2 emissions accordingly:

The Brazilian Amazon REDD APD project wants to stop the planned deforestation and preserve the jungle in all its diversity. In addition, sustainable timber use is operated with low impact logging.
