Greenhouse gas emissions assessment

Reference year
01/01/2023 - 31/12/2023
Assessment result
103.77 kg CO₂e per unit (11kW charging power)
Assessment methodology

Assessment of the product line was carried out in accordance with the valid Greenhouse Gas Protocol Product Standard using the Cradle-to-Gate approach.

Functional unit:1 wallbox
System boundary: cradle-to-gate

The AMTRON 4You 510 product is also available in a version with a charging capacity of 7.4 kW:

110.53 kg CO₂e per unit (7.4kW charging power)

This variant was recognised using the same accounting method as described above.

Cradle-to-gate refers to the assessment of a product’s greenhouse gas emissions up to the (factory) gate’ and therefore includes only the emissions up to the point at which the product leaves the company. It does not consider use and disposal. In this case, it is also referred to as a partial PCF. This assessment approach should only be used for intermediate products whose downstream processing and final use is unknown.

reduction measures

The company is aware that greenhouse gas emissions must be avoided and reduced as far as possible. Offsetting by means of carbon credits shall only be perceived as an additional – if albeit vital – measure to achieve the 1.5°C target set out in the Paris Climate Agreement. The offsetting share must be gradually reduced in this context.


The company has acquired carbon credits to offset the greenhouse gas emissions as assessed.
Offsetting period
01/01/2024 - 31/12/2024
Number of credits (1 credit = 1t CO₂e)
The number of carbon credits is based on the planned sales volume of 3,931, whereby the product with the highest emissions was taken into account in the calculation.

Christopher Mennekes | Managing Partner MENNEKES

“As a medium-sized family business, we take our social and ecological responsibility very seriously. We have been supporting climate-protecting activities with a wide range of measures for many years – both nationally and internationally. For example, we rely on 100% green electricity, an all-electric vehicle fleet, solar power generation, material recycling and sustainable packaging. Now we are taking the next step and making the production of our wallboxes completely climate-neutral. We are offsetting 100% of the CO2 released during production by investing in forest conservation.”
