In the context of our annual climate goal monitoring, we have reviewed and revised the method for the calculation of our climate target in 2018. In accordance with the framework of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, we have been calculating our emissions using the market-based method since 2015. We are now applying this calculation method to our climate target. This means that the purchase of electricity from renewable energies through certificates or electricity from low-emission sources can also be taken into account. Consequently, we also adjusted the 2008 baseline to reflect the proportion of renewable energy at that time. The baseline reduced from 2 602 431 metric tons of CO2 to 1 481 400 metric tons of CO2. As a result, the climate target will be reduced to 1 185 120 metric tons of CO2 by 2020, which also represents a reduction of -20% compared to 2008. With this calculation method, we are at the forecasted level for 2017.
