Sustainability Report FY 2021

85 RUFFINO | Sustainability Report FY 2021 13.2% the amount of renewable enery used +6.7% compared with FY 2020 0.00020 GJ/K€ energy intensity of the Group in FY 2020 (0.00017 GJ/K€ in FY 2020) From the point of view of continued improve- ment in FY 2021, we have started research to plan photovoltaic systems on our production sites. In particular for Tenute Ruffino S.r.l., the installa- tion of two photovoltaic systems at the Gretole and La Solatia wineries are expected by the end of FY 2022, while a feasibility study is underway to set up a photovoltaic system for Poderi Ducali Ruffino S.r.l. The study will end by the FY 2022. In order to map the consumption and pinpoint possible improvement solutions, we have been carrying out an annual carbon footprint analy- sis since FY 2015 for all sites. In particular, ener- gy usage has been tracked, in addition to emis- sions from lighting and heating/air conditioning in buildings (cellars, warehouses, offices, etc.), bottling and packaging lines, accessory systems and machinery (nitrogen system, CO 2 extraction systems, etc.), use of agricultural vehicles, goods transportation in Italy (most overseas transpor- tation is managed directly by CBI), use of com- pany cars, employee travel, waste disposal and recycling, use of fluorinated gases for refrigera- tion systems and use of chemical products for treatments. This reporting, which is conducted on all CBI si- tes, formed the basis for the analysis of the ove- rall situation across the CBI Group. As shown in the chart, direct emissions have been reduced in the three-year period and indi- rect emissions are in line with previous years. In particular, the Group’s total CO2 emissions (Sco- pe 1 and Scope 2 location based 19 ), totaling 1,350 tCO 2 eq, are down by 9% compared to volumes in FY 2020, primarily due to the reduction in direct emissions and increased use of energy from re- newable sources. More specifically, direct CO 2 emissions (Scope 1) generated in FY 2021, totaling 592 tCO 2 eq, are down by 20% compared to the previous year, in- direct CO 2 emissions (Scope 2 location based) to- tal 757 tCO 2 eq and are slightly higher than in FY 2021 (+3%), and indirect CO 2 emissions (Scope 2 market based) amount to 1,281 tCO 2 eq (+1% com- pared to FY 2019). 19 Indirect CO 2 emissions (Scope 2) can be calculated using a double methodology: “location based” and “market based”. More specifically, the first method considers an average factor of CO 2 eq emission of the national electricity network (the country where the electricity is used), while the latter takes into account emissions from electricity, based on the contractual form intentionally chosen by an organization. For example, for energy from FER, the emission factor of CO 2 eq will be zero; in the case of other non-renewable energy sources, a residual mix is used (defined at a country level) if the intensity level of the organization’s emissions is not specified in contracts. 20 The emission intensity is calculated as a ratio between the Group’s total CO 2 emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2 location based) in tCO 2 eq and the Production Value in the Consolida- ted Financial Statements for the three-year period.
