Environmental performance monitoring and reporting
All environmental performance data are reported by local site and aggregated to and Group level. Data concerning energy use and CO2 emissions is monthly while others include material consumption, water, residual products, and recycling are compiled annually.
The reporting of greenhouse gas emissions is done according to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting (GHG) protocol published by the World Business Council on Sustainable Development and the World Resource Institute.
Accordingly, SKF reports emissions both location based and market based. In our CO2 objectives, we use the market based emissions.
The reporting scope covers all SKF's manufacturing sites, technical and engineering centres and logistics locations. Sales units are included when they are at the same site as manufacturing or logistics. Separate sales offices are excluded due to their minor environmental impact. Joint ventures are included where SKF has management control.

Did you know that...?
as part of our overall responsible sourcing approach, all major suppliers to SKF are required to achieve (or have a credible plan to achieve) ISO 140001 certification? Since 2007, energy intensive suppliers have also been required to report on energy use carbon emissions and their management of this issue.
