Creating trust through transparency
Open communication creates trust. That’s why Wintershall Dea is committed to transparency in its sustainability 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.
|1. GHG direct, Scope 1 [Mio t]||2.44||2.17||2.08|
|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]||29.58||30.49||25.76|
|7. Energy intensity (3), [GJ/t]||1.05||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.
|1. Water withdrawn, Mio m³||27.51||24.42||24.24|
|2. Waste, t||153,637||139,073||184.643|
|3. Oil Spills (2)|
|3.1 Number of oil spills > 1bbl||5||1||2|
|3.2 Volume of leakages [bbl]||37.2||66.00||24,00|
(1) Consolidated pro-forma data. Consolidated pro-forma data. Data includes all production sites on equity basis (percentage by shares) according to IOGP w/o exploration and administration.
(2) Data at all sites of Wintershall Dea and its business as well as joint ventures, in which we have operatorship, have been compiled worldwide regardless of our stake and reported in full (100%).
Social Key Performance Indicators
We continuously aim for zero harm to people.
|Total (Employees & Contractors)||2019||2018||2017|
|1. Fatalities (FAT)||1||0||0|
|2. Lost Time Injury (LTI) (2)||5||3||8|
|3. Lost time Injury Frequency (LTIF) (3) (4)||0.43||0.24||0.62|
|4. Total Recordable Incident Cases (TRI)||31||39||33|
|5. Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) (4)||2.66||3.17||2.54|
|6. Number of hours worked (4)||11,642,172||12,309,066||12,978,341|
(1) Consolidated pro-forma data. Occupational safety at all sites of Wintershall Dea and its business as well as joint ventures, in which we have operatorship, have been compiled worldwide regardless of our stake and reported in full (100%).
(2) LTI include fatalities.
(3) Per million hours worked.
(4) Data on hours worked across all activities operated by Wintershall Dea. The calculation of working hours is based on local standards and are partially estimated and projected.
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|
(1) Based on own-operated data as defined by the OGCI methodology
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.
