28. Chapter 2: The brewer (continued) Our electricity consumption has decreased from 9.91 kWh per hectolitre in 2004 to 9.59 kWh per hectolitre in 2005. This total is just above the target for 2005 of 9.5 kWh per hectolitre. The inclusion of soft drinks plays an important role in this reduction. Further savings can be attributed to the optimisation of a cooling plant compressor in Ama (Nigeria) and the electricity-saving programme, which included initiatives such as a new lighting control system in Sharkia (Egypt). In addition, in Warka (Poland), the new boiler house consumes 50 per cent less electricity than the old one. The brewery in Lagos (Nigeria) excluded the electricity consumption by third parties in line with the reporting scope, which was not the case in 2004. Indirect C02 emissions have increased from 3.3 kg C02 per hectolitre in 2004 to 4.0 kg C02 per hectolitre in 2005. This reported increase follows the inclusion of indirect C02 from the purchase of steam in our figures. Without this effect indirect emissions would have been slightly lower at 3.4 kg C02 per hectolitre of beer. We are committed to save fuel and electricity through our Aware of Energy programme and consequently reduce our C02 emissions. Our target is a 15 per cent reduction over the period 2002 - 2010; to date we have achieved a 3 per cent saving and will need to make considerable efforts to meet our 15 per cent target by 2010. Several of our production units participate in the European Union C02 emission trading scheme. For the year 2005 these units received rights for 298 ktons of C02, while 245 ktons were used. The proportion of renewable thermal energy utilised has remained stable at 1.5 per cent in 2005. This energy is mainly comprised of biogas from anaerobic treatment of waste water. The proportion of renewable electricity was 15 per cent of the consumed amount in 2005. Emissions of ozone-depleting substances to air due to losses from our installations were reduced from 12.7 tonnes in 2004 to 8.4 tonnes in 2005, corresponding with 1,050 kg Rll equivalents in 2004 to 636 kg Rll equivalents. The lower losses are mainly the result of newly installed equipment and improvements in our cooling systems (for example in Bujumbura, Burundi and Ibadan, Nigeria). Heineken has been invited to participate in the 'Refrigerants naturally' initiative, which Heineken has accepted. Greenpeace, along with companies including Unilever, PepsiCo, Carlsberg and Danone will exchange information about the development of systems with alternative refrigerants to move away from the use of HFCs.
