Corporate Sustainable Responsibility

Q-Park has been reporting annually on sustainability, based on the GRI Standards, since 2011. In the early years, it was all about raising awareness and integrating sustainable development in our day-to-day business. We benchmarked ourselves and ensured we were doing the right things in the right way. We engaged with stakeholders and enhanced the transparency of our governance and our impact on environmental and social issues.

From 2017 onwards, we focused more on developing and implementing shared solutions. We identified how we can contribute to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and our role in helping society progress towards Europe's aim to be climate neutral by 2050.

  • Our value creation model provides insight into our inputs, efforts and results.

  • Our environmental impact chapter provides detailed information about our energy use and emissions reduction since 2010.

Mobility transition

In addition to our role in the energy transition, we also have a role to play in the mobility transition. We enhance urban liveability and we help move society towards zero-emission mobility. Our parking facilities are an essential part of the urban mobility infrastructure and thus part of our contribution to the mobility transition.

  • We collaborate with business partners, local authorities, as well as our customers and employees to create a more sustainable, diverse and inclusive future.

  • We invest with a long-term perspective, to increase the number of mobility hubs, EV charging points and sustainable mobility partnerships wherever possible.

  • We have been playing our part and contributing to sustainable mobility for a long time, and we will continue to seek innovative ways to help reach the common goal.

ESG information

For our more financial stakeholders in particular, we've grouped our highlighted results in environmental and social clusters. For the more static governance information we refer stakeholders to our corporate website.

Carbon footprint

This year we implemented several improvements regarding calculating and publishing our carbon footprint.

  • We extrapolated energy consumption from our measured owned, under concession and long-leased (O+LL) parking facilities (PFs) to derive the total energy consumed by the O+LL portfolio.

  • We deducted the energy consumed by our customers using electric vehicle charging points and allocated its carbon footprint to Scope 3.

  • We procured more energy from renewable sources.

Moving forward

We are already making preparations to ensure CSRD compliance over the reporting year 2025. We will explore in detail how a coherent long-term strategy creates competitive advantage, by generating and protecting value.
