Make the environment central to your CSR commitment

For an SME, launching an energy transition plan also means taking a first step towards developing a CSR (corporate social responsibility) policy. By addressing sustainable development issues, the company sends a strong message to all of its stakeholders including clients, staff and suppliers. This is true now more than ever: a business must consider its social responsibility in order to survive. CSR has proven to be a real source of growth, often increasing financial performance. While most directors are aware of these issues, they may not know how to structure the implementation of this transition. We’re here to help you do this.

Ambitious climate goals for Luxembourg

Businesses move at their own pace in the energy transition. Whereas large corporations have internal resources to work on environmental issues, SMEs are often less equipped for the challenges that lie ahead. And there are many.

In its climate act of December 2020, the government set clear goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions nationally.

Every one of the country’s businesses has been asked to work towards a more environmentally friendly low carbon economy. More specifically, six industries will be asked to contribute towards a 55% reduction in emissions by 2030 compared with 2005:

  • energy & manufacturing;
  • construction;
  • transport;
  • residential and commercial buildings;
  • agriculture and forestry;
  • waste and wastewater management.
