NIBE atmospheric emissions consist of GHG, NOx, SOx and VOC.
Besides generating GHG emissions from energy use, we also use refrigerants in our products and our own installations, which generate some diffuse emissions of refrigerants to the atmosphere.
Transportation is an area where we are developing the reporting of GHG emissions. Today we can track and report the GHG emissions from our own vehicles. We are beginning to get data for purchased transportation and business travel but do not have enough accurate data to be able to report it yet.
Depending on the type of production process, other types of emissions can be more or less material, but since some of the companies have atmospheric emissions as a significant environmental topic, we regard it as important for the whole NIBE Group and something that we should work to minimize.
NIBE has an indirect target to reduce our GHG emission intensity. The target is expressed in terms of reducing energy use by 30% from 2013 to 2020 less than 10 MWh/MSEK total sales.
NIBE buy GoO:s that cover all purchased electricity, which means that it is generated from renewable sources. We have a target to phase out all fossil oil burning from our own facilities.
Our reported carbon emissions are calculated based on GHG protocol emission factors.
