1 Deerns Consulting Engineers Healthy living and working environment Mission critical facilities Sustainability and energy New techniques Safety and security How sustainable is Deerns? Deerns participated in the Greendriver Challenge as one of its initiatives to make the company fleet more sustainable. Charles Mahieu, one of our senior specialists, won this driving competition. The prize? Driving an electric Tesla for a day.

2 2 Deerns FOREWORD Sustainability is an on-going process Contributing to a sustainable environment is part of our mission. We do this by developing advanced, innovative and energy-saving concepts for our clients. Furthermore, we like to show that our business has taken steps forward. We are pleased to present the achievements Deerns has made to this date in terms of sustainability. This is no reason to be complacent, it s an incentive to keep on doing better. Sustainability is an on-going process. Our focus is primarily on large measures that make an immediate and substantial contribution to reducing CO 2. While this is logical and certainly necessary, it should not cause us to forget the little things like turning off the light when the office is empty, arranging to travel together to a meeting, travelling more economically and considering whether it is really necessary to travel at all. These are just a small number of contributions towards a sustainable environment. The most important thing is to change behavior, specifically individual behavior. While each small initiative will not resolve the problem in itself, every little bit helps and together this will result in significant savings. This is our biggest challenge! Marcel Schellekens Director Deerns

3 How sustainable is Deerns? 3 ABOUT DEERNS Profile Deerns is the largest independent consultancy firm in the Netherlands working in the field of installation engineering, energy and building physics. With local offices in the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Dubai and the United States, Deerns is a leading international player. The headquarters of Deerns is located in Rijswijk in the province of South Holland, the Netherlands. Deerns develops and designs technical facilities in the built-up environment. We excel in combining sustainable and innovative concepts with reliable and practical implementation to help our clients build comfortable, safe and sustainable working and living environments. Our measures Our offices When it comes to our offices, the emphasis is on energy-saving measures within our buildings and ensuring that the energy consumed is sustainable as far as possible. In addition, we limit the use of raw materials where possible, in our case primarily paper. The paper that we use is manufactured sustainably. Our travel kilometers By far the largest part of our CO 2 footprint is determined by our travel kilometers. The measures we have taken in this context are focused on limiting the number of travel kilometers and reducing our CO 2 emissions per kilometer by stimulating the use of public transport and energy-efficient company cars. Our work Since 1928, we have developed sustainable solutions for a wide-range of clients. Our energy concepts remain by far our most important leverage in our objective to realize a substantial CO 2 reduction. This is why we have set ourselves the task of ensuring that at least 20% of the relevant projects that we handle each year are sustainable to such an extent that they are eligible for an accreditation certificate. Viewing sustainability as a popular trend does not create lasting change. It must be continuously integrated into the business Jan Karel Mak, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Deerns

6 6 Deerns RESULTS The CO 2 footprint of Deerns This footprint was calculated using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol This standard for CO 2 measurement and management is based on 3 categories: Scope 1: all direct emissions of greenhouse gases. Scope 2: indirect emissions of greenhouse gases arising from the consumption of electricity, heating or steam purchased. Scope 3: other indirect emissions, such as extraction and production of materials and fuels purchased, activities related to transportation in vehicles that are owned or managed by the entity making the report, activities related to electricity that do not fall within Scope 2. CO 2 emissions per FTE Own business operations, shown in kg CO 2 Calculation of CO 2 footprint 2010 Scope 1 Car (business purposes) 600,068 Gas consumption 65,239 Water consumption 536 Air conditioning 10,292 Car kilometers Aircraft kilometers Electricity Gas consumption Paper Air conditioning Public transport kilometers Water consumption Scope 2 Electricity 85,543 Scope 3 Aircraft 173,802 Other public transportation 9,019 Paper 11,824 Total CO 2 (in kg) 956,322 Emissions per employee (FTE) 2,656 Contribution in percentages Car kilometers 62.7% Gas 6.8% Water 0.1% Air conditioning 1.1% Electricity 8.9% Aircraft 18.2% Other public transportation 0.9% Paper 1.2%

7 How sustainable is Deerns? 7 Compared to 2009 we achieved the most important results in terms of mobility: 88,000 fewer car kilometers and 20,000 fewer aircraft kilometers, while doubling the number of public transport kilometers. By being more aware of how we travel, we have reduced our CO 2 emissions by 13%. Deerns Multiplier We achieve the greatest reduction in CO 2 emissions with our sustainable energy concepts, which are elaborated in our projects. To reflect this positive impact, we have introduced the Deerns Multiplier. This factor represents the extent to which annually we are able to save CO 2 emissions for our clients in our top 10 projects that can be set off against the statutory performance requirements relative to our footprint. CO 2 emissions savings In Deerns projects in comparison to the Deerns CO 2 footprint for In 2010, the savings in CO 2 emissions over the entire technical lifespan was 577 times our annual output. The savings of 600,000 tonnes of CO 2 emissions realized by our projects corresponds to the annual emissions of 200,000 Dutch automobiles. Deerns CO 2 emissions in 2010 Deerns Multiplier In total, the sustainable solutions in 2010 resulted in a reduction in CO 2 emissions of 600,000 tonnes, nearly 600 times the annual emissions of Deerns.

8 8 Deerns SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Our social responsibility goals Reducing CO 2 emissions is one of the objectives of Deerns and is part of our ambition to achieve maximum corporate social responsibility in our operations. Deerns also supports other initiatives in order to realize these social objectives. Below is a selection of some of the 20 causes we support annually. Solar Team Twente (Twente University) In 2011, the eleventh edition of the World Solar Challenge will take place. Solar Team Twente is busy developing a solar car to successfully drive over 3,000 kilometers through the Australian outback. Deerns is one of the sponsors of the team. Living Daylights Foundation The Living Daylights Foundation promotes efficient usage of day light in the built-up environment. Deerns is one of the main sponsors of this foundation. Benefit dinner Isala klinieken In 2008, the foundation Benefietdiner Isala klinieken was set up by five interns. This foundation hosts an annual benefit dinner, with the principal aim of raising as much money for charity as possible. The dinner is also a way of encouraging the integration of specialists, physician assistants and interns working in the Isala klinieken.

9 How sustainable is Deerns? 9 Participation in the Alpe d HuZes is a big challenge for me. It is a very tough cycling stage, but because you are riding for cancer research, giving up is not an option Marcel Gelton, designer at Deerns and participant in the Alpe d HuZes Alpe d HuZes Alpe d HuZes is a cycling event in which participants, either individually or in teams, climb the Alpe d Huez at least six times in one day. They do not do this just for the sake of it, they do it to raise money for the Alpe d HuZes research fund for the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF Kankerbestrijding). Deerns sponsors two of its employees (Marcel Gelton and Ted Peters) who participate in this event. Prinses Christina Competition The Prinses Christina Competition works to promote classical music and jazz among youngsters. Deerns is one of the patrons of this competition. YES!Delft YES!Delft is a Young Entrepreneurs Society that promotes and supports technical entrepreneurs in all phases. YES!Delft inspires students, professionals and scientists to become entrepreneurs and offers practical assistance in establishing and developing new businesses. Deerns is a sponsor of YES!Delft.

10 10 Deerns COLLABORATION Collaboration in the field of sustainability De Groene Zaak De Groene Zaak (The Green Business Association) aims to accelerate the implementation of sustainability into the Dutch economy and business climate. It is the only cross-sector representative body for sustainable entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. Deerns is a founding partner of De Groene Zaak. FOUNDING PARTNER Dutch Green Building Council Dutch Green Building Council (DGBC) is een onafhankelijke non-profit organisatie die streeft naar verduurzaming van de gebouwde omgeving in Nederland. Deerns is founding partner en medeontwikkelaar van BREEAM-NL, een beoordelings methode om de duurzaamheidsprestatie van gebouwen te bepalen. Deerns is ook lid van de Amerikaanse variant van deze organisatie, de US Green Building Council (USGBC). Building Brains The challenge set by the project Building Brains is how to make the built-up environment energy-neutral. Companies across the entire construction supply chain work together towards achieving the governmental objective of halving the total energy consumption in 2030 compared to Deerns is an active participant in this program. Duurzaamgebouwd.nl Everyone in the Netherlands is in favor of sustainable building, but how do you distinguish the sense from the nonsense? In order to help all parties make a start, OVG Projectontwikkeling has taken the initiative and, together with a group of Dutch experts, has set up a digital knowledge platform on this subject, Deerns is a partner in this digital platform. Samen Elektrisch The platform Samen Elektrisch was founded by and for organizations that buy and use electrical vehicles. Together these organizations have increased negotiation and lobbying power and they want to use this to accelerate and improve the introduction of electrical mobility. The organizations share their knowledge and gain competitive prices and fast delivery. Deerns has ordered its first electric vehicles.
