Tryg as a
Green workplace

Climate change constitutes one of the most critical challenges of our time and requires immediate action from all actors in society. Tryg acknowledges that we are part of the problem – but more importantly – a part of the solution.

Climate change is a serious challenge that we, as a society, face and the problem will only worsen if we do not make an effort to reduce our carbon footprint now. Tryg is not an energy-intensive company, however, we acknowledge that we are a part of the solution when it comes to minimising carbon emissions. We support the Danish govern­ment’s ambition of reducing carbon emissions by 70% in 2030 compared to 1990, as well as the ef­forts to minimise climate change and its negative impacts addressed in the Paris Agreement.

Our goal is to become carbon neutral in 2023, in relation to our carbon emissions deriving from scope 1 and scope 2 and from our waste, air and train travel in scope 3. We have set a target to reduce our carbon footprint by 30% in 2023 and 50% by 2030 compared to 2019 and will compensate for the rest of our carbon emissions. Our focus is to compensate less and reduce more over time.

In Tryg, we are all committed to changing our mindset, actions and habits in order to reduce our carbon footprint. We do so through bigger strategic initiatives as well as everyday initiatives, such as:

  • Renewable energy from 2021
  • Environmental certification, which insures that our buildings live up to certain climaterelated and environmental standards
  • Minimising carbon emissions from air travel by encouraging our employees to travel “smarter”
  • An agreement with a taxi service provider, whose car fleet con­sists mainly of electric vehicles.
  • Food and waste sorting
  • Codriving initiatives
