The Climate Agreement is a package of measures and agreements between companies, civil society organizations and governments to collectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands by about half by 2030 (compared to 1990).
Many new laws and regulations have resulted from the Climate Agreement. This has an impact on business in the Netherlands, especially in the areas of business mobility and CO2 reduction. On this page, we explain how your organization can be ready for the new legislation such as the Reporting Requirement Work-related Personal Mobility.
The Environment Act
The Environment Act received the green light from the Senate on March 14, 2023, and may enter into force on July 1st, 2024.
The law should make it easier for citizens and businesses to apply for permits for new homes, roads and bicycle paths and other spatial planning projects. To this end, the law combines and better aligns all kinds of existing laws, including those on the environment, water and nature.
Decision Work-related Personal Mobility CO2 Reduction
The Normative Regulation on Work-Related Personal Mobility is part of the Environment Act. Because the mandatory standard will not be introduced for the time being, its name has been changed to the Reporting Requirement Work-related Mobility of Persons.
The goal is to gain insight into the Reporting Requirement into how much CO2 is emitted. On July 1st, 2024, all employers with more than 100 employees will start registering all business travel movements. In 2025 we will see where we stand. If the collective CO2 emissions exceed the interim ceiling, a binding standard will be imposed per employer.
Where do I start?
What data should I report?
All kilometers per means of transport/fuel type must be divided into commuting and business. This applies to both private cars and leased cars.
The reporting obligation consists of the annual submission of your own data in a government portal. With Fynch Mobility, we provide 24/7 real-time insight into your own data through our Fynch Impact Monitor.
Make sure you can organize this before July 1st, 2024, we are happy to help you with this.
