CO 2 216.607,5 kg CO 2 POWER 802.250 kWh Savings 36 37 place - whether in the case of direct (Scope 1), indirect energy-induced emissions (Scope 2) and/or any other indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions. e. The standards, methodologies, estimates and/ or calculation programmes used. a) The installation of the energy-efficient LED lights at the Bocholt works in 2017 was the most important cause of the reduction in power consumption (802,450 kWh). As a direct result, the greenhouse gas emissions dropped by 216,607.5 kg CO 2 . b) Gases included in the calculation: all c) Base year: 2016 d) Category in which the reduction took place: Scope 2 e) Assumption: The conversion factor given by the energy supplier is 270g CO 2 . Further performance indicators are either not yet available or are currently under development. We first calculated a CO 2 location balance sheet (Bocholt and Drossdorf) in financial year 2017. The comparison values for the base year 2016 are available for electricity and gas, as the most major causes of greenhouse gases.

The source of the emission factors and the values used for the global warming potential (GWP) or a reference to the GWP source. f. The consolidation approach to emissions - whether equity-share approach, or financial or operative control. g. The standards, methodologies, estimates and/or calculation programmes used. a) Scope 1 gross volume of direct GHG emissions: 19,021.2 tons CO 2 e. b) Gases included in the calculation: all c) Biogenic CO 2 emissions: none d) The base year for the calculation is 2016. e) Source of the emission factors: Eco-Cockpit CO 2 balancing tool of the Efficiency Agency NRW.
