We are aware that our activities involve emissions of gases and dust into the atmosphere. Calculating emissions is a necessary step towards taking reduction measures, decarbonising and reducing the organisation’s climate impact.

We are constantly developing the monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions related to our Group’s activities. In 2021, we improved the data collection and aggregation process and identified all direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2) emissions, in line with the GHG Protocol methodology. We measure emissions of pollutants into air from our Bitumen Production Plants. We also calculate other emissions of pollutants into air, which are reported to the National Centre for Emissions Management (KOBiZE).

Plans are afoot for 2022 to set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for Unibep S.A. in three time horizons: until 2025, 2030 and 2050, for Scopes 1 and 2.

The source for the adopted global warming potential (GWP) indicators is AR6 – IPCC Sixth Assessment Report: Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), “Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis.” 2021; GWPs: IPCC’s Working Group I.

The calculation of the organisation’s carbon footprint emissions is based on the methodology set out in The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard Revised Edition (GHG Protocol) and GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance.

Sources of emission factors were mainly publications by KOBiZE, the Energy Regulatory Office, DEFRA and factors published by electricity retailers.

Emissions are counted for all business across the organisation, except for oversees assemblies carried out by Unihouse S.A.
