Wintershall Dea Graphic Performance & Reporting

Wintershall Dea continuously publishes key performance indicators (KPI) relevant non-financial information. We follow internationally accepted reporting standards, allowing our stakeholders to compare our ecological, economic and social performance with others. We also use KPIs to identify potential for improvement and measure our progress.

Key sustainability figures

Wintershall and Dea became Wintershall Dea on 1 May 2019.

Key performance indicators (KPIs) for 2019, 2018 and 2017 are combined figures of the two former legacy organisations Wintershall and DEA. The figures were published in the respective sustainability reports.

Ecological Key Performance Indicators

Climate Protection is a key issue and an essential part of Wintershall Dea corporate strategy.

2. GHG indirect, Scope 2 [Mio t] 0.08 0.19 0.10
3. GHG indirect (2), Scope 3, [Mio t] 81 74 -
4. GHG intensity, [kgCO2e / boe] 11.22 11.17 -
5. CH4 intensity, [%] 0.65 0.54 -
6. Energy consumption, [Mio GJ] 28.40 30.49 25.76
7. Energy intensity (3), [GJ/t] 1.01 1.15 -

(1) Consolidated pro-forma data. Data includes all production sites on equity basis (percentage by shares) according to IOGP w/o exploration and administration.

(2) Scope 3 emissions have not previously been reported by Wintershall or DEA. We believe that Scope 3 emissions are an integral part of greenhouse gas reporting and climate change mitigation. As a first step, we determine our Scope 3 emissions based on category 11 – use of sold products – of the GHG Protocol, which is considered to be the most relevant category for an E&P company. Subsequently, we will complement our Scope 3 reporting by other relevant categories. 

(3) Data on Energy intensity is based on Wintershall Dea activities with operational control.

Ecological Key Performance Indicators

For Wintershall Dea environmental management means more than being compliant with legal requirements.

Methane Guiding Principles

Wintershall Dea has committed to the Methane Guiding Principles (MGP) and focusing on the reduction of methane (CH4) emissions across the natural gas value chain. These emissions occur when natural gas is released during the extraction or transportation process.

Our MPG workplan 2020

As part of our Methane Guiding Principles commitment, Wintershall Dea will conduct an internal and an external MGP Masterclass in 2020, which provides a strategic view on the importance of methane emissions reduction. It targets decision-makers with respect to planning, mitigating, measuring and reporting methane emissions. Additionally, Wintershall Dea supports a working group with the focus on Principle 4: advocate sound policy and regulation on methane and is a member of the Programme Oversight Group.

CH4 (methane), t 9,439 11,316
CH4 intensity (1), % 0.54 0.65

We report our methane emissions in accordance with applicable regulations and industry standards.

Wintershall Dea is guided by international reporting standards

In order to meet the information needs of our stakeholders, we regular report non-financial information and follow international and industry-specific reporting standards like IPIECA or IOGP. In this way, Wintershall Dea ensures that its performance can also be compared on an international scale. As a future listed company, we plan to report to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Wintershall Dea became a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures in February 2020.

The Global Reporting Initiative is a multi-stakeholder organisation. It was founded in 1997 with the aim to develop sustainability reporting guidelines that help cpmpanies to report on their economic, ecological and social activities. 

The industry developed framework helps companies to shape the structure and content of their sustainability reporting. The focus is on relevant topics in the oil and gas industry.
