Note 15: Greenhouse gas emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions are primarily CO2 related to fuel, but also include some CO2, CH4 and HFC process emissions. This section reflects the performance of all our own operations covering the gate-to-gate scope. More details on our Carbon Policy and cradle-to-gate reporting can be found in Note 11 in this section.

Greenhouse gas emissions in million tons (bar chart)

Total greenhouse gas emissions made up of direct emissions from processes and combustion at our facilities and indirect emissions from purchased energy.

  • Total greenhouse gas emissions per ton of production increased by 1 percent to 257 kg/ton CO2(e) (2011: 256 kg/ton). Absolute GHG emissions have come down by 1 percent to 4.7 million tons of CO2(e) (2011: 4.8 million tons). The decrease is mainly caused by lower fuel consumption
