Scope and boundaries
Methodology for measuring carbon footprint of our own operations Methodology
The carbon footprint complies with the guidelines of the GHG Protocol. The main sources used for the emission factors are ADEME (Agence de l’Environnement et de la maitrise de l’Energie) and the IEA (Internation Energy Agency). Our calculation includes all greenhouse gasses. To communicate our emissions, we have chosen to present an intensity ratio of the absolute emissions to the number of lumens produced (tCO 2 e/Mlum – tonnes of CO 2 equivalent 18 /million lumens 19 ) We are continuously working to include all our activities in the calculation and to improve our data quality. Today, we are confident that the following results represent the majority of our emissions. The estimated uncertainty of Schréder’s carbon footprint is 20%. Our carbon footprint calculation covers all the 3 scopes (scope 1+2+3) according to the GHG Protocol. The data we used for the 2022 calculation is based on the information supplied by all major production sites (China, Hungary, Portugal, Spain and South Africa) and sales offices (over 10 employees). Where data was not directly available for these entities, it was extrapolated based on the number of employees. Despite our efforts to collect data for our entire processes, there are still some emission sources that are not included in our calculation. These are our boundaries. Some are currently out of scope today due to a lack of data, while others are not applicable for Schréder. Emission sources that are out of our scope due to lack of data. We targeted to include all of them from next year: 3.2 Capital goods: emissions coming from our fixed assets. 3.8 Upstream leased assets: small legal entities with FTE < 10. 3.11 Use of products sold: emissions of our products during the operational phase of their lifetime. 3.12 End of life treatment of products sold. 3.15 Investments: legal entity owned (at least partly) by Schréder but over which it has no operational control. Emission sources which are not applicable for Schréder: 3.9 Downstream transport and distribution
3.10 Processing of products sold 3.13 Downstream leased assets 3.14 Franchises
Reporting period 2022
In order to set targets, Schréder decided to take 2018 as baseline, the year in which we started to measure our CO 2 emissions.
Restatement of information
Since 2020, we have made some improvements to our carbon footprint calculation process. Due to improved data quality, the calculation of our sold lumens is more accurate than before. In addition, some of the hypotheses used for assumptions have been reviewed in recent years to improve the accuracy of the data. As a result of these updates, our emissions results have changed slightly since our last report.
18) A carbon dioxide equivalent (CO 2 e) is a metric measure used to compare the emissions from various greenhouse gases on the basis of their global-warming potential (GWP), by converting amounts of other gases to the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide with the same global warming potential. (19) The unit of luminous flux, a measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by a source per unit of time.
