3 The Carbon Footprint Analysis is part of Ementor ASA s corporate efforts on becoming an environmentally conscious service provider. The following report is a review of the Carbon Footprint Analysis based on the total energy consumption related to corporate operations. The object is to get a genereal overview of the company s greenhouse gas emissions, focusing on CO 2. The analysis facilitates the identification of possible measures to reduce the energy consumption and thus also the overall carbon footprint.

4 Focus and commitment The Ementor Group declared in April 2008 that we will increase focus on corporate responsibility and take an even more active role to promote and support implementation of Green IT concepts in own organisations and customers organisations. The Ementor Group goes further and introduces new market leading areas within Green IT and environmental awareness. The Carbon Footprint Analysis is part of the group s overall commitment towards the environment and will form the basis for our future measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs. The Ementor Group introduces internal environmental CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and implements ISO14001 Environmental Management System in the whole Group. To ensure focus and environmental responsibility the Ementor Group hereby presents the Carbon Footprint Analysis for the Group and for the Group companies Ementor, Atea, Sonex and Topnordic. The goal for the Ementor Group is to go carbon neutral in In collaboration with Elsparefonden, this year, TopNordic is organising a specialist training of sales assistants within environment and electricity savings in order to give the best possible guidance to our customers. The Ementor Group goes even further and has introduced the leading Green IT concept goitgreen for all customers and companies in the Nordic and Baltic region. goitgreen is the total Green IT concept to ensure correct focus and inspiration within all IT related areas in private and public companies. The Ementor Group defines Green IT as the optimal IT infrastructure for a company, including choice of IT product/ solution, value added services and recycling. Green IT is handling IT in the most environmentally correct way and to ensure ongoing focus. The Ementor Group is taking the lead within Green IT and will take an active role in promoting and supporting the implementation of Green IT concepts in our customers organisations. By thinking green, companies are able to make an important difference for the climate situation. And at the same time save costs! Energy cost is expected to be the second highest IT operating cost in 2009, but will increase even further with the growing demand for more IT equipment. Savings between 25% and 50% is possible with small changes in IT policies. We shall take an active role to promote and support implementation of Green IT concepts in own and customers organisations. We do this due to our environmental awareness, but also because we know that we are able to inspire and help our customers achieve lower CO 2 emissions, lower energy use and cost savings.

6 Why go climate neutral? Ementor ASA s goal is to go carbon neutral in 2010 Climate Neutrality Climate neutrality means from a technical point of view to offset the greenhouse gases (in CO 2 equivalents) emitted from own activities by reducing an equivalent amount of emissions someplace else, e.g. by using the Kyoto Protocol s flexible mechanisms. In order to become a climate neutral company one should also develop a climate strategy plan which includes the carbon footprint calculation, a plan to physically reduce own emissions and communication both internally and externally. It is also important to evaluate and repeat this over a number of years. By doing so it is possible to measure any improvements, e.g. by indicators such as emission per employee or emissions per revenue. Ementor ASA has now calculated their carbon footprint. The next step towards carbon neutrality is to act and reduce. In the following report and in our Action Plan 2009, we pinpoint our focus areas for the coming year. UN emission credits as a tool The carbon offsetting takes place by reducing the same amount of CO2 emissions in a UN approved Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project in a developing country. The emission trading scheme is part of the Kyoto Protocol s flexible mechanisms to combat global warming. The emission credits have been issued by UN and have been validated and verified by an approved certification entity. A CER (Certified Emission Reduction) is an official emission credit which guarantees the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of 1 ton CO 2 equivalent (1 CER = 1 ton CO 2 ) and also supports the development of sustainable growth in developing countries. When a CER is issued the reduction in greenhouse gas emission has already taken place. The projects are very often linked to production of renewable energy or energy efficiency measures. By purchasing an emission credit from the project developer you are helping to finance the project. All the CERs purchased on behalf of the clients will be transferred from the UN CDM registry to a national carbon registry for retirement. Thus, it is not possible to resell the CER. A CER emission credit has the following qualities: A CER is linked to a specific project which is well documented and where the reduction in CO2 emissions has already taken place when the CER is issued. The CER and the CDM mechanism encourage transfer of both capital and technology from industrialised countries to developing countries. The CER and the CDM mechanism encourage sustainable growth in developing countries. 4

7 Methodological Approach Greenhouse Gas Protocol The analysis is based on the international standard Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative (GHG protocol), which is the most important standard for measuring greenhouse gas emissions, developed by World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). The GHG protocol consists of two accounting standards ( corporate accounting and reporting and project accounting explaining how to calculate and report GHG emissions. The protocol is the result of a decade-long collaboration between businesses, governments and environmental groups around the world and was in 2006 the basis for the ISO standard I. The GHG protocol founds its carbon inventory and reporting on three main scopes of direct and indirect emissions. The reporting considers the following greenhouse gases, all converted into CO2 equivalents: CO2, CH4 (methane), N2O (laughing gas), SF6, HFCs and PFCs. Scope 1: Direct emissions (mandatory reporting) This level concerns all emissions from sources owned or controlled by the company. For the Ementor group, scope 1 includes: Fuel consumption related to the transportation of employees and goods. Scope 2: Indirect emissions (mandatory reporting) This level concerns all emissions from purchased energy, in the case of Ementor ASA: Purchased electricity and district heating for heating and lighting Fuel oil and natural gas for heating Scope 3: Indirect emissions (voluntary reporting) While scope 1 and 2 are mandatory according to the GHG Protocol, calculating scope 3 emissions in the Carbon Footprint analysis is mandatory. Scope 3 emissions all other indirect emissions from purchased services, emitted from sources not controlled by the company. Examples are employee business trips, emissions from suppliers, use of products and services by end customers and waste management. 5

8 Ementor ASA The analysis for 2007 includes the following companies: Ementor Norge AS, Topnordic AS, Atea Sweden AB, Atea Finland Oy, Atea Logistics AB and Sonex Group. Highlights 2007 Data from all the companies offices has been collected and the work involved commitment from employees from various group levels. The total carbon footprint for the group in 2007 was 8 339,2 tonnes CO 2 equivalents. The main contributor to the company s greenhouse gas emissions is transport. Fuel consumption by cars and air travel make out almost 60 % of the total emissions. The average CO 2 emissions per employee is 2,1 tonnes. The Nordic average by similar companies is between 1,5 and 3,0 tonnes CO 2. Focus Areas 2009 Ementor ASA plans to go carbon neutral within By thinking green in all our operations, we will be able to make an important difference for the climate situation. And at the same time save costs! Our focus areas for 2009 are: Cars and driving Air travel Electricity and heating Waste Our Action Plan for 2009 contains practical measures for the potential savings and reductions within each area for each company. It is our top priority to implement this plan throughout the group and make the best possible internal effort for carbon neutrality. At the same time we will strive to transfer this commitment to our partners and suppliers, as well as giving our customers the best possible service through our goitgreen program.

9 Ementor ASA Future focus Ementor ASA is committed to reduce both our CO 2 emissions and costs significantly in the coming years. Considering the high emissions from transport, scope 1 has the highest potential for both reductions and savings and will be the main target for our climate measures throughout the group. There is also a strong potential economic gain from substituting a share of the company air travels related to meeting activities with video- and phone conferences. As far as emission reductions are concerned, the areas with highest reduction potential are electricity and heating and car driving. For details, please see our Action Plan

10 Norway In the Norwegian market the company operates under the name Ementor Norge AS. Highlights 2007 The total carbon footprint for Ementor Norge in 2007 was 1 195,9 tonnes CO 2 equivalents. The main contributors to the company s greenhouse gas emissions are electricity and heating, closely followed by transport. Electricity and heating constitute almost 40 % of the company s emissions.
