In 2019, the positive CO2 effects enabled by our customers across Europe were 74% higher than our own CO2 emissions (enablement factor of 1.74 to 1).
The positive CO2 effects made possible on the customer side by using our products and solutions amounted to almost 15.8 million tonnes in the reporting year.
With the ESG KPI "Enablement factor" we calculate the positive CO2 effects that arise on the customer side through the use of our products.
Reporting against standards
Information on the enablement factor is relevant for GRI Indicator GRI 305-5 (Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions). The information is relevant for the EFFAS KPI S13-01 (Intermodality). It is furthermore relevant for criterion 13 (Climate-relevant emissions and objectives) of the German Sustainability Codex. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact principles 7 (Precautionary approach) and 8 (Promoting environmental responsibility).
