Sustainability at Plymovent

Net zero by 2025

Tackling one of the biggest challenges of our time, climate change can’t wait and neither can we.

Our road to net zero

We are determined to fulfil our commitment to the goals of the Paris Agreement and lead our company in the transformation towards a net zero company. A huge challenge for the world and for us. One of the most important things we can do is to reduce our emissions and improve the carbon footprint. E.g. developing products and solutions with a reduced CO2 footprint in mind and reduction of our energy consumption are part of our climate strategy.

    This is how we are going to achieve this:

    1. We defined a clear scope in close cooperation with the Climate Neutral Group, part of Anthesis
    2. Carbon footprints were made for all the Plymovent offices around the world
    3. Quick wins (reductions) were identified and implemented immediately
    4. Plans have been developed, per office location, to further reduce emissions and these plans and actions have become a structural part of the Plymovent strategy and have been embedded in the annual business cycle
    5. Our goal: Net zero in 2025!

    In the meantime we have been audited by EcoVadis, the world’s largest and most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings. Our sustainability efforts have been awarded with a Bronze medal in the 2021 audit. And this is just the start: we continue to improve and ‘go for gold’!

    A Plymovent forest, how about that!

    Plymovent is aware of the fact that printing new literature and buying giveaways for each exhibition has a significant impact on the environment. To contribute to the health of our planet and in its effort to combat climate change, Plymovent decided to stop with printed brochures and giveaways on exhibitions. By using our online platforms, Plymovent will provide you with all the information you may look for.


    But it doesn't stop there!

    Instead of printed brochures and giveaways, Plymovent will plant a tree for each business card received on the Plymovent stand at any exhibition worldwide.

    Plymovent partnered with ‘one tree planted’ (, a non-profit organization focused on global reforestation. They have planted over 92.7 million trees in more than 80 countries across the globe since 2014. In 2022, they more than doubled the impact from 2021 - with 52.7 million trees!


    So, come on with these business cards and let’s get this Plymovent forest going!
