The Dutch government is actively empowering a more social and sustainable society. In light of the Climate Goals, the government has committed itself to determine the carbon footprint of each Ministry and to actively manage reduction thereof. In doing so, the government considers both its collaboration with network partner as well as its own business operations.
After a tendering procedure, the SmartTracker software has been selected to support the Ministries and underlying agencies in this for the next nine years.
For several years, SmartTrackers was already servicing several governmental bodies, including the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, with its software platform. Now other Ministries are being added, including the Ministry of the Internal Affairs and Kingdom Relations, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and the Ministry of Justice and Security.
The aim is to gain and maintain reliable insight into emissions, improvement potential and reduction targets to support meaningful decision-making. Certification on the CO2-Performance Ladder is part of the approach.
