Carbon Trust Standard Carbon Trust Standard



In 2015, Commerzbank London was awarded the Carbon Trust Standard certificate for the fourth time in a row for its efforts to reduce its CO2 emissions.

To lower its carbon emissions Commerzbank London carried out different energy efficiency measures: improved cooling systems and air humidification, installation of LED, implementation of a degree day monitoring which tracks and controls energy use and analyses external influences.

The Carbon Trust Standard requires participating companies to keep reducing their carbon footprint year-on-year. As Commerzbank London has already introduced the obvious improvements, the biggest challenge is finding new ways to continue this work and further reduce emissions.

To achieve the Carbon Trust Standard companies must measure their direct carbon footprint, prove the establishment of effective CO2 management and document their reduction in emissions over a three-year period. Carbon Trust Standard certificates are valid for two years.
