Total specific energy consumption Direct and indirect C02 emission Greenhouse gases In 2009 our total specific carbon dioxide emission (the amount of direct and indirect C02 emissions produced per hectolitre of beer, soft drinks or cider produced) was 9.4 kg C02 per hectolitre. Compared with a restated 2008 figure of 9.9 kg C02/hl, this is an improvement and ahead of our stated target of 9.6 kg C02/hl for 2009. Overall, as a result of divested production units and lower volumes, our total absolute carbon dioxide emissions decreased from 904 ktonnes in 2008 to 848 ktonnes in 2009 (including our malting plants and new acquisitions). Environmental compliance From this year onwards, we report the total number of environmental and safety accidents with off-site effects. An environmental and safety accident is defined as an uncontrolled event with the potential to harm life, property or the ecosystem and which can cause nuisance to a third party. In total, 64 accidents were reported. In most cases, the quality of the effluent exceeded the legal limits or activities on the brewery premises caused noise-related nuisances. Nine production units had to pay fines as a result of one or more environmental accidents. The total amount of fines paid in 2009 was EUR 357,000 versus EUR 643,000 in 2008. The number of environmental and safety complaints related to environmental or industrial safety accidents with off-site effects increased from 65 in 2008 to 75 in 2009. This is mainly the result of new, stricter reporting instructions and a change of our definitions. As the procedure for reporting safety complaints was reintroduced in the course of 2009, the accuracy of this figure cannot be guaranteed.
