The ecological footprint (carbon footprint) includes climate-impacting greenhouse gases such as CO2, methane and nitrous oxide (hereafter referred to as CO2e). This covers all emissions directly related to operational processes (so-called Scope 1 and 2 emissions) as well as certain selected upstream and downstream emissions (Scope 3 emissions) such as employee mobility, the use of materials such as inks, aluminium plates or paper, and the production and transport of newspapers. In addition, the carbon footprint includes emissions generated in connection with the provision and use of digital news products such as e-papers, apps and websites. This CO2e footprint has been calculated once a year for the entire Group since 2020 and is disclosed for the first time in this report for 2022 and 2021. It includes the fully consolidated companies with the exception of JobCloud. Primary data are included in the calculation for the sites which have more than 100 employees, as well as for those divisions that have requested a footprint calculation based on primary data. The figures are modelled for smaller sites and companies. The calculated ecological footprint provides information on how high the CO2e emissions are for each category (Scope 1, Scope 2, Scope 3) and site. Having been collected for the past three years, this data provides a valuable basis of meaningful information that will allow TX Group to develop a detailed climate strategy in the 2023 financial year.
