At Dynaflow Research Group we believe it is of great importance to apply our expertise and experience in engineering to make the world a better place. We therefore evaluate our impact on the climate in two ways, by determining our carbon footprint and by evaluating the types of projects we work on for our clients. We are working on reducing our carbon emissions yearly and offsetting the remainder to become net zero as of 2022.

At the same time, many of our clients face challenges in meeting the COP28 goals for 2030 of tripling the renewable energy capacity and doubling energy efficiency improvements. We want to support them in finding innovative and advanced solutions to reduce CO2 emissions, lower energy consumption and reduce waste. Our objective is to increase the number of sustainable projects we do yearly, while at the same time continuing to support our existing clients.

Our Carbon Footprint

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Guide is used to calculate the office’s carbon footprint. This guide not only takes CO2 emissions into account but also other greenhouse gasses. These other greenhouse gasses are converted into an equivalent CO2 emission to make it easier to keep track of the overall footprint.

In the calculation, the year 2019 was taken as the base year. Note that the COVID-19 crisis governed 2020 and 2021. This had a major impact on the emissions.

In the image on the right, the CO2 footprint of the DRG employees is shown at the FTE level. Therefore, in 2022 the Dynaflow carbon footprint was around 55 tons of CO2.

Our Compensation

As a company, we are still investigating how we could reduce our footprint further. Until then, however, we will compensate our emissions using carbon credits. These credits are a one-time investment in a project that reduces emissions elsewhere in the world. Often, other social and economic benefits are also realized by investing in this type of project.

To offset the CO2 emissions in 2022, the full 55 tons we have decided to support a program that provides sustainable cooking stoves in poorer, remote locations. This makes cooking more efficient reducing the fuel required for the locals. This reduces carbon emissions in those locations, although it is difficult to quantify.

In addition to environmental benefits, there are health benefits for the locals as in-house emissions are reduced as well.
