Greenhouse Gases

Our target is to cut scope 1 and 2 emissions by 50 percent in absolute terms by 2025 (compared with 2008). Use of alternative technologies and efficient production processes will help us achieve this.

The standard used to report our greenhouse gas emissions is the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Standard. We distinguish between direct scope 1 emissions from energy generation and production, and indirect scope 2 emissions from the purchase of electricity and steam. External power inputs are reported using
the location-based and market-based methods. In accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, in the location-based method, carbon dioxide emissions from purchased power are calculated using country-specific average emission factors, while in the market-based method the individual emission factors of the power supplier are used.
