CO2 emissions are measured in metric tonnes.
Emissions are calculated for all activities in Grundfos companies. The reporting is based on GHG protocol scope 1 and 2, however, fuel consumption from own vehicles is not included.
The 2011 data shows that our target from our Footprint Strategy, of never emitting more CO2 than we did in 2008, is more than fulfilled: The C02 emissions are reduced by 6% since 2008 – and during the same period the turnover increased by 11%. Compared to 2010, CO2 emissions are reduced by 5%
Please note that this data cannot be compared directly with the CO2 data from the Management review in Grundfos Annual Report 2011. Firstly, the scope is different; the Annual Report includes only production companies, while this data includes all activities. Secondly, due to further validation of a newly implemented data collecting system, certain errors were found in two of the production companies.
Please note that comparison figures for year 2008 and 2010 have been changed since reported for the first time. This is due to enhanced data measurement and reporting process. The changes are not material.
