The Budimex Group demand for fuels and energy is a result of the following processes:
Under the limitation of consumption of fuels and energy, the equipment is modernised and replaced with more economical and ecological pieces, educational campaigns, aimed at encouraging the employees to use the fuels and energy rationally, are conducted. The influence of consumption of these resources depends on the nature of a given project. The limitation of consumption applies to Budimex’s offices too, e.g. of computer hardware and paper used, which has to have suitable certificates. The car fleet is restocked on an ongoing basis as well. However, all of the activities mentioned are definitely of smaller influence on the limitation of a carbon footprint than the primary business activity compared with the scale of projects carried out. Carrying out investments is closely related with energy consumption and emissivity. One of the ways of restoring the balance of influence on the environment is purchasing the so-called green energy, generated in hydroelectric plants.
In 2017, the demand for electrical energy and thermal energy grew slightly within the Budimex Group. It is related to a greater scale and number of projects than in the previous year. Direct and indirect CO2 emissions increased by 16.2% compared with 2016. Whereas the use of renewable energy confirmed with suitable certificates in 2017 accounted for as much as 23% of all the electrical energy purchased and increased by 193% compared with the previous year. However, the effectiveness analyses carried out annually due to a long production cycle, the size of a project and a given stage at which they are currently carried out are not reliable and do not cohere reporting periods.
