(1)To calculate the company’s greenhouse gas emissions, the methodology used in the 2011 CSR report has beenmodified as follows.
- Electricity consumption:The methodology provided by the Red Eléctrica Española and the Instituto para el Ahorro y la Diversificación
de la Energía was used.
-Energyconsumption (naturalgas):Themethodologycontained inAppendix1oftheGreenhouseGas InventoriesReportandAppendix
1 of the Spanish Renewable Energies Plan 2011-2020.
- Air transport:The methodology used was provided by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the UK Government
(DEFRA) for2012.Referencedata:emissionsof248gramsofCO

per kilometer on long-haul flights.
- Rail transport:The methodology provided by RENFE and the Inventario Nacional de Emisiones GEI was used.
- Collective transport (corporate bus): the methodology provided by the National Inventory of GHG emissions has been used.
-Privatetransport (ownvehicle):Themethodologyprovidedbythe InstitutoparaelAhorroy laDiversificaciónde laEnergíawasapplied,

Therefore, greenhouse gas emissions in 2011 contained in the Corporate Social Responsibility Report for the year 2011 have been ad-
justed to the methodologies described, also adding emissions data for 2010. Besides, it is noted that, with respect to Corporate Social
Responsibility Report for 2011, data for MEFF for the years 2010 and 2011 have been included in the basis for calculation of CO
2
of
electricity consumption.
(2)Emissionsrelatingtothedirectconsumptionofelectricenergy in2012havebeencalculatedonthebasisofthetotalconsumptionof
the offices in Madrid, Bilbao andValencia, as data for Barcelona are not available
(3) Includes, in accordance with the methodology described in note 1 above, emissions relating to business trips made by employees
by train (does not include trips made by employees by train to the Majadahonda railway station to take the corporate bus service to the
Las Rozas headquarters).
(4) Includes, in accordance with the methodology described in note 1 above, emissions relating to business trips made by employees
by corporate bus.Trips made by employees using the company coach service have been calculated based on the distance between the
offices in Las Rozas and Plaza de la Lealtad in Madrid (20 km) and the distance between the office in Las Rozas and the train station in
Majadahonda (2 km), considering the following technical parameters: minivan/bus, one vehicle and two return trips a day in the first
case, and 18 return trips a day in the second and 222,219 and 220 working days in 2010, 2011 and 2012 respectively.
(5) Includes, inaccordancewiththemethodologydescribed innote1above,emissionsrelatingtotripsmadebyemployeestotheirplace
of work using their own vehicles. Trips made by employees using their own vehicles have been calculated on the basis of the number
of parking places at the Las Rozas office (Madrid) and the following technical parameters: Petrol car 1.4L-2.0, 87,406, 93,922 and 88,913
vehicles in2010,2011and2012respectivelyanda40kmroundtrip foreachemployee (thedistancebetweentheLasRozasbuildingand
