Reduction in the energy consumption and climate emissions of the administrativelocations based on efficiency and savings measures1)

Measure Unit 2016 2017
Annual savings due to conversion to LED MWh 2.6 2.6
Annual avoided emissions due toconversion to LED t CO2e 1.4 1.4
Emissions avoided because of certified green electricity from hydroelectric power t CO2e 514 540
1) The artworks in the exhibition spaces are now illuminated with LED. The resultant energy savings and avoided climate emissions could not be determined.

Measure Einheit 2017
Reduction in energy consumption due to refurbishment andmodernisation of the units MWh 3,797.1
Annual avoided emissions due toconversion to LED t CO2e 915
Climate emissions avoided due to certified green electricity from hydroelectric power t CO2e 17,365
         
2The derived climate emission volumes were calculated using a factor of 241 g/kWh for natural gas (emission factor of the Institut Wohnen und Umwelt [IWU]).

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-303-3: Water withdrawal
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Total water withdrawal from all areas in megaliters, and a breakdown of this total by the following sources, if applicable:
i. Surface water;
ii. Groundwater;
iii. Seawater;
iv. Produced water;
v. Third-party water.

b. Total water withdrawal from all areas with water stress in megaliters, and a breakdown of this total by the following sources, if applicable:
i. Surface water;
ii. Groundwater;
iii. Seawater;
iv. Produced water;
v. Third-party water, and a breakdown of this total by the withdrawal sources listed in i-iv.

c. A breakdown of total water withdrawal from each of the sources listed in Disclosures 303-3-a and 303-3-b in megaliters by the following categories:
i. Freshwater (≤1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids);
ii. Other water (>1,000 mg/L Total Dissolved Solids).

d. Any contextual information necessary to understand how the data have been compiled, such as any standards, methodologies, and assumptions used.

Water consumption and water intensity, portfolio 1)

  Einheit 2016 2017
Water consumption m3 8,453,625 7,929,615
Water consumption per sqm of residential and commercial area m3 1.33 1.24
Residential and commercial area included sqm 6,377,279 6,394,399
Units included number 106,908 106,318

1) The data here relates to our Berlin portfolio, which accounted for around 71% of our portfolio as a whole in 2017. The data is taken from our main water meters. These record both the individual tenants’ consumption levels, which account for the majority of total consumption, and general water consumption in the communal areas as well as for sprinkler systems. There are no sub-meters for the individual spaces in part of our portfolio. It is therefore not currently possible to provide separate data for water consumption in the communal areas, which account for only a very small proportion (around 1%) of the total area.

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-306-2: Waste
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Total weight of hazardous waste, with a breakdown by the following disposal methods where applicable:
i. Reuse
ii. Recycling
iii. Composting
iv. Recovery, including energy recovery
v. Incineration (mass burn)
vi. Deep well injection
vii. Landfill
viii. On-site storage
ix. Other (to be specified by the organization)

b. Total weight of non-hazardous waste, with a breakdown by the following disposal methods where applicable:
i. Reuse
ii. Recycling
iii. Composting
iv. Recovery, including energy recovery
v. Incineration (mass burn)
vi. Deep well injection
vii. Landfill
iii. On-site storage
ix. Other (to be specified by the organization)

c. How the waste disposal method has been determined:
i. Disposed of directly by the organization, or otherwise directly confirmed
ii. Information provided by the waste disposal contractor
iii. Organizational defaults of the waste disposal contractor
