In addition to the development of energy saving programs, our target is to reduce our energy consumption by increasing our employees' awareness as well as improving processes and facilities.
Mabanaft uses direct and indirect energy sources to operate its facilities, sites, service stations, vessels and vehicles. In order to use energy efficiently, OIL! Tankstellen continues to upgrade service stations to LED lightning and energy-saving cooling technology. To deliver fuel to our service stations tank trucks of reputable contractors with energy efficient fleets are under contract.
Since 2016 Mabanaft Deutschland has been certified according to ISO 50001. ISO 50001 is an energy management standard enabling companies to systematically and continuously increase the energy efficiency of their business processes.
Climate change is currently regarded as the world’s most serious megatrend, as well as one of the greatest global risks. Extreme weather events such as prolonged high temperatures and droughts, severe storms and floods, and a rise in the sea level are just a few examples of possible consequences that can severely affect Marquard & Bahl’s business as well. In order to evaluate our own impact on climate change, our mother company Marquard & Bahls calculates the carbon footprint for the entire group. In accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), we define our carbon footprint as the total amount of the six greenhouse gases listed in the Kyoto Protocol, measured in tons of CO2 equivalent (CO2e), caused directly or indirectly by our company. The carbon footprint is annually published in the Marquard & Bahls Sustainability Report.
We have introduced climate initiatives for customers who are willing to contribute to the protection of the environment through carbon capture.
