Source of the emission factors and the Global Warming Potential (GWP) rates used, or a reference to the GWP source.   Source: Umweltbundesamt: CO2 Emission Factors for Fossil Fuels (2016) [https://www.umweltbundesamt.de/en/publikationen/co2-emission-factors-for-fossil-fuels]
Information about the standards, methodologies, assumptions and/or calculation tools used:   For general data: data from the UBA (German Environment Agency), Gemis database,  data from Deutscher Wetterdienst (German Meteorological Service), data from energy providers and authorities. Applied standards: ISO 14001, 50001, 9001, EMAS Regulation. The software Quentic was used to capture and calculate environmental data. For energy management matters, the software eGem was used.

c. If available, the gases included in the calculation; whether CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs, SF6, NF3, or all.

d. Base year for the calculation, if applicable, including:
i. the rationale for choosing it;
ii. emissions in the base year;
iii. the context for any significant changes in emissions that triggered recalculations of base year emissions.

e. Source of the emission factors and the global warming potential (GWP) rates used, or a reference to the GWP source.

f. Consolidation approach for emissions; whether equity share, financial control, or operational control.

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

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-305-3: Other indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Gross other indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions in metric tons of CO2 equivalent.

b. If available, the gases included in the calculation; whether CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs, SF6, NF3, or all.

c. Biogenic CO2 emissions in metric tons of CO2 equivalent.

d. Other indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions categories and activities included in the calculation.

e. Base year for the calculation, if applicable, including:

Scope 3 emissions at the this time were captured only in part, for example, emissions related to business flights and logistics service providers. Precise data, which show all emissions are not captured at this time.

Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-305-5: Reduction of GHG emissions
