Key figures on sustainability

What does the term “metric-based climate protection” mean?

At its core, key figure-based climate protection is about collecting consumption and key figures and creating a key figure system. These numbers are only helpful if they show development and document operational performance in a comparison over time. In order to do this, you have to collect and evaluate the key figures from at least two consecutive years.

How are the data and their emissions allocated to scopes?

Companies or organizations emit greenhouse gases in three areas of application, called “scopes”. These scopes are defined as follows:

Emissions in Scope 1 arise from the company's direct activities, for example the consumption of primary energy such as natural gas, heating oil, gasoline and coal or the operation of a company-owned vehicle fleet. Scope 1 also includes the direct greenhouse gas emissions that result from the production processes.

Scope 2 includes indirect emissions that come from the energy purchased by the company. This includes, for example, the consumption of secondary energy sources such as electricity, district heating and steam.

Scope 3 includes all other indirect emissions that result from the company's activities and affects upstream and downstream value creation. This includes, among other things, the purchase of goods and services, employee commuting and business trips.
