Emission reduction


DAF’s main impact on the environment is through the emission of greenhouse gasses and their related influence on global warming. For this reason, emission reduction is the first pillar in our Sustainability Framework. This pillar also includes other emissions affecting air, water and soil like NOx or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).


Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact.

We understand the importance of cutting CO2 emissions and are committed to have reduced the CO2 emissions of the trucks we sell by 45% in 2030, as required by the European Union (95% of our CO2 impact is generated by vehicles on the road). Additionally, we aim to have reduced our Scope 1 and Scope 2 CO2 emissions by 45% in 2030.

  • Scope 1 emissions are direct emissions from owned or controlled sources. For DAF, Scope 1 emissions result from burning gas and fuel to support our operations.
  • Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy.
  • Scope 3 emissions are all indirect emissions (not included in Scope 2) that occur in the value chain of our company, including both upstream and downstream emissions; they include amongst others the use of our trucks.
