1Refers to the total energy used for operations based on site calculations with specific data and methodology.

2 Includes only electricity/ heating/ cooling/ steam purchased and consumed. Electricity/ heating/ cooling/ steam/ consumed from own generation is included in fuel consumption.
n.r. = not reported

1 Scope 1 refers to direct emissions from operations that are owned or controlled by the organization. We use emission factors from different sources, e.g., IPCC, API GHG Compendium, etc. Since 2016 OMV Petrom is applying global warming potentials of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4 – 100 year)

2Scope 2 refers to indirect emissions resulted from generation of purchased or acquired electricity, heating, cooling, or steam. We use emission factors from different sources, e.g., national authorities, supplier-specific emission factors, etc. The data in the table refers to the market-based approach. The increase in 2020 was mainly due to the extended scope with filling stations, whose calculation of the Scope 2 emissions was prepared using the national emission factors for Romania and Moldova, and residual mix emission factors for Serbia and Bulgaria. Location based is 0.112 mn t CO2eq.

3 Scope 3 refers to other indirect emissions that occur outside the organization, including both Upstream and Downstream emissions. We use emission factors from different sources, e.g., IPCC, PlasticsEurope, etc. The data includes Scope 3 emissions from the use and processing of sold products. Pure “trading margin” sales as well as intracompany sales are excluded.

4 Decrease mainly due to the significant reduction of gas venting in Upstream
