Key Performance Indicators to criteria 11 to 12

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-301-1: Materials used
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Total weight or volume of materials that are used to produce and package the organization’s primary products and services during the reporting period, by:
i. non-renewable materials used;
ii. renewable materials used.

In the reporting period 2019, 15.000 sheets of paper (DIN A4, 100% recycled) have been used, 10.000 sheets less than in 2017.

Due to the mere office operation of the INPACS head office, no considerable amount of cardboard or office material has been used.

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-302-1: Energy consumption
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Total fuel consumption within the organization from non-renewable sources, in joules or multiples, and including fuel types used.

b. Total fuel consumption within the organization from renewable sources, in joules or multiples, and including fuel types used.

c. In joules, watt-hours or multiples, the total:
i. electricity consumption
ii. heating consumption
iii. cooling consumption
iv. steam consumption

d. In joules, watt-hours or multiples, the total:
i. electricity sold
ii. heating sold
iii. cooling sold
iv. steam sold

e. Total energy consumption within the organization, in joules or multiples.

f. Standards, methodologies, assumptions, and/or calculation tools used.

g. Source of the conversion factors used.

Total energy consumption: 
2019: 136.225 kWh (-32%)
2017: 200.648 kWh

Total fuel consumption from non-renewable sources:

2019: 90.765 kWh = 9.113 liters (+3%)
2017: 87.887 kWh = 8.824 liters

(thermal value of 9.96 kWh/liter according to the German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control)

Energy consumption for electricity (German electricity mix): 
2019: 11.754 kWh (-69%)
2017: 37.940 kWh

Energy consumption for heating: 
2019: 33.706 kWh (-55%)
2017: 74.822 kWh

The presented data is based on the regular account statements submitted by the respective service provider and was gathered within the creation of the greenhouse gas report.

The slight increase in fuel consumption is connected with the expansion of the international sales activities and the recruitment of two new key account managers. 

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-302-4: Reduction of energy consumption
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Amount of reductions in energy consumption achieved as a direct result of conservation and efficiency initiatives, in joules or multiples.

b. Types of energy included in the reductions; whether fuel, electricity, heating, cooling, steam, or all.

c. Basis for calculating reductions in energy consumption, such as base year or baseline, including the rationale for choosing it.

d. Standards, methodologies, assumptions, and/or calculation tools used.

Resource Development in Relation to Previous Reporting Period 2017
Electricity - 69,01 %
Heating - 54,95 %

The drastic reduction of the electricity and heating consumption by more than a half is mainly due to the move to a new office building, which was constructed in a particularly energy-efficient manner.
 
is mainly due to the move to a new building.

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: 
2019: 100m3 (-16%)
2017: 119m3

With 0.33 m3 per employee, water consumption is not considered a significant environmental impact factor as it corresponds to the operation of staff bathroom and kitchen facilities.
All water is provided by regional water utilities.
The reduction of the water consumption is due to the move to a new office building with a more precise data calculation.

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

INPACS' exclusively non-hazardous waste is mainly divided into small amounts of office paper and kitchen waste, rarely does it contain electronic scrap, all collected in separate containers.
Waste is classified as a non-material environmental aspect at INPACS head office and is included in the landlords’ waste management. No separate monitoring at INPACS head office.
