(1) The following methodology was used to calculate the company’s green-
house gas emissions:
-
Electricity consumption:
the methodology provided by Red Eléctrica Es-
pañola and Instituto para el Ahorro y la Diversificación de la Energía.
- Energy consumption (natural gas):
the methodology contained in Ap-
pendix 1 of the Greenhouse Gas Inventories Report and Appendix 1 of the
Spanish Renewable Energies Plan 2011-2020.
- Air transport:
the methodology provided by The National Energy Founda-
tion (
.
- Rail transport:
the methodology provided byThe National Energy Founda-
tion (
).
- Public transport (corporate shuttle service):
the methodology provided
by the Inventario Nacional de Emisiones GEI (National GHG Emissions In-
ventory).
- Private transport (own vehicle):
the methodology provided by the Institu-
to para el Ahorro y la Diversificación de la Energía, per kilometre travelled.
Greenhouse gas emissions for air and rail transport in 2011 and 2012, as
disclosed in the 2012 Corporate Social Responsibility Report, have been
adjusted to the methodologies described. The conversion factor for the cal-
culation of greenhouse gases for 2011 and 2012 was 0.18, while for 2013
it was 0.31. With respect to 2012 Corporate Social Responsibility Report,
electricity-derived CO2 emissions for 2012 have been recalculated using the
definitive values of the gross electricity production mix (3 kgs CO2 per KWh).
Greenhouse gas emission indicators
(2) Emissions relating to the direct consumption of electricity in 2012 and
2013 have been calculated on the basis of the total consumption of the
offices in Madrid, Bilbao, Valencia and Barcelona as data for MEFF offices
are not available.
Emissions relating to direct consumption of electricity in 2013 have been
calculated on the basis of the total consumption of the offices in Madrid,
Bilbao and Valencia, as data for the Barcelona headquarters (Barcelona
stock exchange and MEFF) 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 sta-
tion to take the company shuttle service to the Las Rozas headquarters).
(4) Includes, in accordance with the methodology described in note 1 above,
emissions relating to use by employees of the company shuttle. Trips made
byemployeesusingthecompanyshuttleservicehavebeencalculatedbased
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: one vehicle and two return trips a day / coach: 18 re-
turn trips a day, and 219, 220 and 216 working days in 2011, 2012 and 2013,
respectively.
(5) Includes, in accordance with the methodology described in note 1 above,
emissions relating to trips made by employees to their place of work using
their own vehicles. Trips made by employees using their own vehicles have
beencalculatedonthebasisofthenumberofparkingplacesattheLasRozas
office (Madrid) and the following technical parameters: Petrol car 1.4L-2.0;
93,922, 88,913 and 84,185 vehicles in 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively, ac-
cessing the Las Rozas (Madrid) work centre, and a 40km round trip for each
employee (the distance between the Las Rozas building and the centre of
Madrid) as well as 219, 220, and 216 working days in 2011, 2012 and 2013,
respectively.
