Danske Bank Beats Energy Goals - Sets A Higher One
Anyone looking for a nice example of how to put together a great Corporate Sustainability Report should check out the one just released by JouleX customer, Danske Bank Group. Danske Bank is the largest bank in Denmark and one of the leading financial enterprises in northern europe. In its 2012 Corporate Responsibility Report lists its sustainability goals and its progress against them. For example, the company set an ambitious goal of reducing their electricity consumption 20%, from 2009 levels, by 2014. Danske Bank not only met that goal two years early, they beat the goal and then raised it to 30%!
from the report:
"In 2012, we began implementing a new online system for monitoring electricity consumption from IT equipment called JouleX. The system allows us to reduce energy consumption by monitoring, analysing and controlling how much energy we use in our IT equipment – from laptops and printers to servers and wireless access routers– when they are connected to a network.
Preliminary tests of the system in 2011 showed tremendous savings potential, and once fully implemented, the system will allow us to become better at monitoring and identifying areas where we can reduce emissions."

We commend Danske Bank on clearly defining their sustainability goals and measuring progress against them. JouleX is excited to be working with them to continue to exceed their electricity reduction goals and document their success for years to come.
