The indicators shown here were collected using the Group’s internal management tools and specific queries addressed to the departments, business lines or countries in the Group. It is expressly noted when the scope covered by an indicator differs from that of the entire BNP Paribas Group. The data reported here are taken from the CSR Chapter of the 2014 Registration Document, based on which, subsequent to checks regarding the accuracy of the information presented and its relevance to the sectoral challenges facing BNP Paribas, our Statutory Auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers drew a conclusion expressing a moderate assurance.

ENVIRONMENTAL INDICATORS

To monitor successful implementation of measures addressing its direct environmental impact, an environmental-reporting system is in place supported by contributors in 18 countries, covering 86.6% of the workforce managed by the Group at 31 December 2014. Some 40 indicators are reported in this campaign: kilowatt hours, metres cub of gas, kilometres travelled, litres of water, tonnes of paper, tonnes of waste, etc. By extrapolating for the 13.4% not covered, the results are used to calculate the environmental data mentioned in this section for the whole Group and presented below.

TOTAL GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS:

547,230 tonnes of CO2 equivalent i.e. 2.91 tonnes of CO2 equivalen per FTE (2013: 563,867/3.06)

Plane 16%
Car 8%
Train 1%
District cooling 1%
District heating 2%
Fuel oil 2%
Natural gas 9%
Electricity 61 %

BREAKDOWN OF THESE EMISSIONS BY SCOPE OF THE GHG PROTOCOL/ISO 14064-1:

Scope 1 Direct emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels 60,450
Scope 2 Indirect emissions from consumption of imported energy 350,400
Scope 3 Indirect emissions from mobility 136,381

Greenhouse-gas emissions (GHGs) are measured by converting the energy consumed in buildings (heating, air conditioning, lighting, IT power supply) and in business travel (air, rail, road) into tonnes of CO2 equivalent (t CO2-eq., including all six greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto protocol).

ENERGY CONSUMED IN BUILDINGS:

1,513 gigawatt hours i.e. 210 kilowatt hours per square metres (2013: 1,662 /226)

District heating 4%
Fuel oil 2%
Natural gas 17%
Renewable electricity 19%
Standard electricity 56%
District cooling 2%

BUSINESS TRAVEL:

863 million kilometres i.e. 4,591 kilometres per FTE (2013: 818 /4,431)

Road 27%
Train 13%
Air 60%

TOTAL PAPER CONSUMPTION:

27,076 tonnes, i.e. 144 kilograms per FTE (2013: 28,415 /154 )

Ordinary paper Responsible paper
Other paper 2,533 2,718
Client paper 5,360 5,683
Internal paper 4,656 6,126

OFFICE WASTE:

Office waste: 32,524 tonnes, i.e. 173 kilograms per FTE, of which 38.9% is sorted for recycling (2013: 36,583 i.e 198/39.9%)

Paper sorted for recycling 11,020
Other waste sorted for recycling 1,628
Waste not sorted for recycling 19,876
