Brainlab develops software and hardware for radiotherapy and radiosurgery, and the surgical fields of neurosurgery, ENT and craniomaxillofacial, spine surgery, and traumatic interventions. The products focus on image-guided surgery and radiosurgery, digital operating room integration technologies, and cloud-based data sharing.

Brainlab is headquartered in Munich, Germany and operates offices in 25 locations across Europe, Asia, Australia, North and South America, among them Brainlab Ltd. (hereafter “Brainlab UK”) in the United Kingdom.

Brainlab UK is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050. The following information refers to Brainlab UK only, not Brainlab AG.

Baseline Emissions Footprint (Brainlab UK)

Baseline Year: 2022

Additional Details relating to the Baseline Emissions calculations.
Baseline is 2022, the starting point of detailed and structured CO2 emission calculations at Brainlab.

Baseline year emissions:

TOTAL (tCO2e)

76 t
Note: Brainlab UK staff operates 100% from home, so Scope 1 emissions relate to “direct emissions from mobile combustion”.

TOTAL (tCO2e)

0 t
Note: No office operated in UK. Therefore no Scope 2 emissions.

TOTAL (tCO2e)

35 t (business travel, 100% based on extrapolations)
Note: Emissions related to “downstream transportation and distribution” are allocated to Brainlab AG, Munich, which also comprises deliveries to UK. Therefore not listed here.
