Supplementary notes

*Excludes the company's consumption of district heating due to the immateriality of the quantity compared with the other Scope 2 categories.

According to the source "Scope 1 are direct GHG emissions from fuels combusted in sources that we own or control, such as our power and heat plants and vehicle fleet. They also include fugitive methane emissions from our gas distribution networks.

Scope 2 are indirect GHG emissions from the generation of electricity that we purchase to power our buildings, operations, and electric vehicles or that are classified as line losses in our power distribution networks. These emissions don’t physically occur at our facilities but rather at the facility where the electricity is generated. This is why power distribution losses are classified as Scope 2 emissions but gas distribution losses as Scope 1 emissions. Emissions attributable to line losses are lower in grid segments with lots of renewables feed-in. In line with the GHG Protocol, we calculate Scope 2 using a location-based method and a market-based method.

Scope 3 are indirect emissions that occur upstream and downstream from E.ON."
