of which transportation and distribution   22.9   20.9   20.8   Transportation services purchased across all business units   Data from operational and business intelligence systems, emission factors for air transport (NTM), ocean transport (Clean Cargo Working Group), and road transport (Handbook Emission Factors for Road Transport)
fuel- and energy-related activities for upstream transportation and distribution   4.9   4.4   4.4   We also report emissions from fuel- and energy-related activities for upstream transportation and distribution to fulfill the requirements of the EN 16258 standard and offset the imbalance between our own and subcontracted transports.   As value chain partners usually do not disclose fuel types used, emissions were calculated assuming most common fuel types (air transport: Kerosene; Road transport: Diesel; ocean transport: HFO) and emission factors provided in the EN 16258 standard.
Waste generated in operations   not reported   not reported   not reported   Of limited relevance due to the nature of our business
