Value Creation Examples


Contributing Source: 2022 Integrated Report

Nevel, a district heating and integrated utilities company, has a value creation plan calling for fossil fuel phase-out and heating plant modernization. This involved replacing peat with biofuels and using biomass from industrial plants, supporting local circular economies. These actions resulted in a 56% reduction in its direct (scope 1) CO2 emissions over 2020-2022; and, by the end of 2022, 80% of the company’s energy production was from renewable sources. At the same time, Nevel's EBITDA has increased by 55% since January 2021.
