A simple procedure

To come up with a concrete action plan and help companies formulate their roadmap we first start to assess their ambition level. The ambition level differs per company. Imagine a company that would like to reduce CO2 emissions for the first time, their ambition is probably small in the beginning. The maturity required to fulfill their ambition will be limited. Where a company that is already active for many years reducing their CO2 emissions, has probably a higher and more complex ambition that calls for a higher maturity level.

We distinguish three levels of ambition; level 1, level 2 and level 3. These three levels have an increasing level of complexity. For the maturity, three corresponding levels are defined. Every level has its own set of themes that are more relevant.
