Carbon footprint

The CO2-emission of Aqua Vision BV in 2018 was equal to 32,0 tons. The distribution of the CO2 –emission is shown in the figure below. More details are depicted in the table at the end of the paragraph.

It is clear that the largest proportion of the CO2 emission is caused by the fuel consumption by the boats, a core business activity. This was followed by the vehicle fleet, although a substantial part of the transport movements was done by public transport. The portion of the CO2 emission by business travel by private cars and by plane were in 2018 relatively small.
