Reducing electricity and fuel consumption

The measures described in the section "Environmental management at company sites" such as the energy audit, energy conservation measures, avoidance of business trips where possible, operation of a high-efficiency cogeneration plant, and the energy-efficient operation of data centers have all paid off for Wincor Nixdorf – and hence also for the environment. In the year under review, we recorded an encouraging decline in power consumption compared to the previous reporting periods.

In this case, the actual fuel consumption of company cars was determined on the basis of a fuel mix of 50% diesel and 50% petrol/gasoline.

As Wincor Nixdorf’s fiscal year does not coincide with the calendar year, some of the figures in the last Sustainability Report were extrapolated or estimated. These extrapolated or estimated figures have been replaced with the actual figures in this year's report.

1)

Determination of CO2 emissions occurs via standard values per emission source. The analysis focused solely on CO2 emissions (no equivalents). The sources used include the Federal Environmental Agency for calculations relating to energy carriers and the IFEU Institute for calculations pertaining to modes of transport.

2)

Among the data analyzed were direct energy usage as well as fuel consumption of company cars (direct emissions), electricity consumption and district heating (indirect emissions – energy-related), and business travel (indirect emissions). Product transportation is taken into account in a different area.

3)

The figures relate to our own direct combustion processes (CHP, heating, etc.) at our production sites.

4)

All non-production sites are leased. No Wincor Nixdorf combustion processes are located at these sites.

5)

The significant reduction in NOx and SOx emissions in fiscal 2013/2014 is attributable to CHP plant downtime as part of the modernization project.

6)

The CO2 emissions in respect of 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 were corrected retrospectively; the changes are minuscule.
