Schréder - Sustainability Report 2022


III. Employee mobility Employee mobility includes all business travel by employees, including company cars (private and business use). In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had the greatest impact on employee mobility. In 2021, many restrictions were lifted and we were able to visit more customers locally, which impacted employee commuting emissions and resulted in a 55% increase compared to 2020. Although this increase in emissions seems high, it is still well below our base year emissions. From 2022, we lifted all restrictions on air travel, but we continue to strongly encourage colleagues to consider alternatives and consider the importance of air travel before buying a ticket. During the COVID period, we adapted our lives to work more remotely, and digital infrastructure has also improved, resulting in changes that have impacted our approach to business travel. Despite restrictions being lifted, our air travel emissions have not returned to pre-pandemic levels and are still 31% lower than in 2018. Another important action we have taken is to implement home working policies in many of our offices. Depending on local legislation, we allow our office staff to work from home a few days a week, further reducing the emissions from employee mobility. Employee mobility emissions

IV. Infrastructure The infrastructure category includes our factories and offices. The emissions from our infrastructure come from the consumption of natural gas, electricity, air-conditioning, office materials, water and waste treatment. It represents 4% of our total company carbon footprint. GHG emissions coming from our infrastructure decreased by 53% in 2022 compared to 2018. This reduction is mainly due to lower energy consumption, and an increased share of green electricity in both our factories and offices.

European Mobility Week In September 2022, our Belgian teams took part in European Mobility Week 3 . Our colleagues committed to using only alternative commuting solutions for the entire week. Some of them used bicycles, others walked or used public transport, but during the week everyone experienced how their daily commute could be more sustainable. We also measured the carbon footprint savings of this campaign and it was 1,252 kg CO 2 e which is equal to a one-way flight from Paris to Los Angeles.
