Over the past few years, we have worked systematically to report data associated with energy consumption, waste treatment, chemical consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The information has made us aware of the challenges we face, and afforded us opportunities to initiate improvement measures.
The Climate and Environmental Accounts give an overview of KONGSBERG’s consumption of energy, emissions of CO2 and production of waste. The accounts cover all Norwegian units, all production units and the larger offices abroad. Historical data have been quality-assured in connection with implementation of a new reporting system for KONGSBERG. This means that reported data for 2010 and 2011 occasionally deviate from previous years’ environmental accounts.
As from 2012, we will not report on the consumption of chemicals, as chemicals are not a significant part of what we consider our environmental accounts. Internally, we will, of course, keep close track of which chemicals are used and of consumption.
