O Basis of reporting ANNEX Scope The safety and environmental figures presented in this report relate to the years iggg, 2000 and 2001 for the production units of the Heineken operating companies and participating interests which are included in the consolidated financial statements (see Annexes 5 and 6), except for Thai Asia Pacific Brewery whose production units are included in the SHE report. The safety figures relate only to the European region. 'Production units' means breweries, maltings and soft-drink plants and combinations of these. Where soft drinks account for less than 10% of a brewery's total production volume, the performance data relating to soft drinks are included in the brewery's data. The figures do not include distribution departments which are not located at production sites nor do they include corporate offices. The volume figures presented in this report, based on pro duction, may differ slightly from the figures presented in Heineken's financial report, which are based on sales. This difference is accounted for by exports and the volume produced under licence. Reporting systems The breweries report environmental data to the Brewery Comparison System (BCS) and the maltings report information on their water, electricity and thermal energy con sumption to the Malting Comparison System (MCS). Both systems are managed central ly by Corporate Production Policy Control (abbreviated to Corporate Production). The other environmental data for maltings and soft-drink plants are recorded by local systems. Safety data are still recorded at local level at present, but the BCS will be modified in 2002 to include the relevant safety parameters. Reporting is in accordance with the instructions and definitions issued by Corporate Production, using report forms provided by that department. Since 2001, all production units have used the standard report form. Newly acquired production units are linked into this reporting system as soon as possible, so that data collection can start without delay. Information on these units for their first reporting year can be found in Annexes 4 and 5. The individual safety and environmental reports by the production units were validated by Heineken Technical Services safety and environmental experts, who checked the completeness and accuracy of the reported data and assessed the basis of the changes, with a view to improving the quality of the data and the information provided. A selection of the checked and aggregated data was then verified by KPMG Sustainability. Safety reporting The safety reporting system is used by the production units to record accidents at their locations and report on the consequences for both their own staff and contractors' personnel, as the basis for accident-prevention measures.
