CO2 performance ladder

For the current generation and the generations to come, Van Riel pursues an active policy with regard to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). One of the core points in Van Riel's CSR programme is CO2 reduction. With the help of the CO2 performance ladder, Van Riel has drawn up a programme to reduce the CO2. By making a CO2 footprint, our most important CO2 emission sources have been identified. This gives us a better insight into our CO2 emission.

Van Riel has demonstrated that, through its efforts with regard to CO2 reduction, it now meets the requirements set for level 3 of the CO2performance ladder of the Dutch Foundation for Climate Friendly Procurement and Business (SKAO).

Van Riel's energy policy, CO2footprint and reduction targets are made known both internally and externally every six months.


Van Riel has converted its own energy consumption into CO2 emissions, thus gaining insight into its CO2 emission per energy flow.  Based on the CO2footprint, Van Riel has been able to set effective targets. Van Riel started mapping its own emissions as long ago as 2012. The footprint is recalculated every six months and made known both internally and externally. For more information, please refer to the CO2footprint.


Based on the CO2footprint, Van Riel has set reduction targets to effectively reduce its CO2 emission.  Various reduction measures have been put in place to achieve this target. The effectiveness of these measures is assessed every six months. For more information, please refer to the CO2 reduction targets.


Every six months, Van Riel publishes its energy reduction policy regarding understanding, reduction and participation in an initiative. For more information, please refer to the CO2 communication plan.


Van Riel actively participates in CO2 reduction initiatives in the sector and beyond.

  • Case: Leidingbrug Muiderberg

    Transport of the Muiderberg pipeline bridge

    Pipeline bridges are available in many sizes, but as large and as hefty as those that we have brought to Muiderberg you do not see them every day. It was only logical that the transport of an object like this also requires special materials. An optimal job for one of our newest acquisitions: the modular driven transport units from Scheuerle.

  • Case: Roof advertising Okura Hotel Amsterdam

    Roof advertising Okura Hotel Amsterdam

    The moment you deploy with large equipment, that naturally attracts a lot of attention. In the past 70 years we have become quite accustomed to the crowd that gathers to observe. But when you close down a street in the heart of Amsterdam for our largest crane with mast extension, that does not go unnoticed.

  • Case: Factory relocation industrial customer

    Factory relocation Tilburg

    Every location is unique. That applies anyway for building locations in the open air, but especially when it comes to industrial movements. When we partially move production environments or move them completely, we literally operate in the heart of a company. And those are special experiences. As with this internationally leading customer.
