Emissions

305-1
Direct (Scope 1) GHG emissions

For the indicators 305-1, 305-2, 305-3, 305-4 and 305-5;

Telenor’s total GHG emissions and energy consumptions for 2018 have been independently verified through a limited assurance by DNV GL based on the ISO 14064- 3 standard/GHG Protocol.

305-4
GHG emissions intensity

Reported figures are for total Telenor Group in the financial year 2018.

  • GHG emissions intensity ratio for all our business units- where the ratio denominator is total revenues: 083  million tonnes CO2/ billions of USD
  • All our reported fuel, electricity, heating/cooling consumptions are included in the GHG emissions intensity ratio.
  • The reported ratio uses GHG emissions from both direct (Scope 1), energy indirect (Scope 2), other indirect (Scope 3).

305-5
Reduction of GHG emissions

Reported figures are for total Telenor Group in the financial year 2018.

The total amount of GHG emissions has increased with 0.399 million tonnes CO2 equivalent as a net effect after initiatives to reduce emissions but with increased business scope (more customers and more data traffic). This includes a new business unit in Myanmar since 2013 – but excludes business units in India, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary and Montenegro (all sold out in 2017-2018).

  • Baseline/base year: 0.729 million tonnes CO2 in 2013
