One of the main focuses of ETNA's sustainability policy is to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. Measuring our carbon footprint every two years provides insight into ETNA's impact on the climate and helps determine possible reduction targets and offsetting measures. A central role in this is played by our sustainability manager Bennie Zeegers, who is an ambassador within ETNA and drives and implements our CO₂ reduction policy.


Short introduction of Bennie

"I am Bennie Zeegers. As ETNA's sustainability manager, I support our sustainability objectives, facilitate the implementation of sustainability initiatives within the organisation and am a point of contact for colleagues, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders when it comes to sustainability issues." 

100% CO2 neutral assembly

ETNA is an assembly company. Assembly is a very clean and energy-efficient process in which supplied components and their housing are assembled into a functioning coffee machine. Throughout our operations, we aim to be at the forefront of sustainability. We want to measure the impact of our activities on the climate. 

One of the main focus points of ETNA's sustainability policy is to reduce its CO2 footprint as much as possible. Measuring our CO2 footprint every 2 years provides insight into ETNA's climate impact and helps determine possible reduction targets and compensation measures. 

To assemble in a CO2-neutral way, we take the following 4 steps: 

  1. Understanding our current greenhouse gas emissions (determinning our COemissions)
  2. Reducing our COfootprint
  3. Monitoring our CO2-footprint
  4. Compensating for our remaining COemissions

Of course, internal and external communication are an important part of this. The ETNA Sustainability Report discusses the 4 steps mentioned above every year.

Linda discusses ETNA's sustainability projects

Linda van de Maat, Director of Operations at ETNA


To reduce CO2 emissions coused by the use of electricity, the roof of ETNA"s assembly hall is fitted with 686 solar panels. With a consumption of 217.055 kWh in 2023, ETNA should be able to fully meet its own power needs.Unfortuanately, grid congestion makes it impossible to feed generated power back to the grid. However, as a result, 106.048 kWh of the power generated could be used directly. The remaining power required (111.007 kWh) was purchased. 

ETNA rents the property. Together wich our landlord, we are currently looking at how te be even smarter in our energy management. For exemple, we use green electricity.

Etna has conducted research into installing electric charging stations for employees and guests. Unfortunately, due to grid congestion, this is currently not possible. We are, however, monitoring all developments in this area closely. 

Energy label ETNA office

From refrigerators to large offices; almost everything that consumes energy has an energy label. The energy label for offices indicates how energy-efficient a building is. In addition, it shows which energy-saving measures are still possible. 

The less fossil energy a building consumes, the better its energy label. Energy label G is the worst. The best is an A+++++ energy label for companies. ETNA's office has energy label A+++++.

Buur maakt Natuur

ETNA is associated with the Dutch Buur maakt Natuur foundation. The Buur maakrt Natuur foundation is commited to buying up farmland and returning it to nature. Our company's CO2 emissions, which remain after the CO2 reduction we have taken, are compensated for by our partnership with Buur maakt Natuur.
