On the road to our environmental goals
Environmental certification of buildings
GRI G4 CRE8
The diagram shows the number of received certificates. In the case of Miljöbyggnad and BREEAM the preliminary certification may be what is shown. Statistics include both our own developed projects where Peab is responsible for certification and projects Peab has built for customers.
Waste per type and method
The compilation process for waste data has been developed and the scope was broadened in 2018. In addition to Sweden, data from Norway and Finland is now included and information about waste amounts has been retrieved from more of the contracted waste management companies. Previously only information from the two main suppliers was reported. Data for 2018 is therefore not completely comparable with data from 2017.
|Hazardous waste||Non-hazardous waste|
|Incinerated with energy recovery||12450||37185|
|Incinerated without energy recovery||21||43389|

The data compilation process and calculation method for emissions in Scope 1 and 3 have been updated in 2018 as a step in improving Peab’s climate data reporting. One of the major updates is the update of emission factors for the calculation of Scope 1 emissions from fuel consumption so that it mirrors the development of fuel content. Another significant change is that a large number of external carriers had fuel cards issued through Peab in 2017, which was not the case in 2018. Data for 2018 is therefore not completely comparable with the data from 2017. Data for all the Scopes has been gathered from suppliers.
Scope 1: Fuel emissions have been calculated with the help of emission factors from fuel suppliers and the Environmental Protection Agency. In cases where emission factors have not been available for a specific fuel, factors have been assumed based on the fuel’s similarity to other fuels. Emissions have only been calculated for Peab Sweden.
Scope 2: CO2e calculations for electricity consumption are based on EPDs from our main contracted suppliers. Emissions have only been calculated for Peab Sweden.
Scope 3: Emissions of CO2e from generated waste have been calculated with a tool developed by the industry. Business travel includes flights booked through Peab’s travel agent and CO2e figures are produced according to the STS Standard. Emissions from flights have been calculated for Sweden and Norway and emissions from generated waste have been calculated for Sweden and Finland.
|Scope 1||Scope 1||57,370||89,201|
|Scope 2||Scope 2||1,275||1,328|
|Scope 3||Scope 3||47,228||44,848|
|Business travel, flights||Tjänsteresor flyg||1,700||1,858|
|Waste management incl. waste transportation||Avfallshantering inkl. avfallstransport||45,528||42,990|
|Total amount of emissions of greenhouse gases (market-based)||Total mängd utsläpp av växthusgaser (market-based)||104,598||134,049|
The data compilation process and calculation method for fuel consumption have been updated in 2018 as a step in improving Peab’s energy consumption reporting. One of the major updates is the update of factors for the calculation of the energy content in fuel so that it mirrors the development of the energy content in the fuel. Another significant change is that a large number of external carriers had fuel cards issued through Peab in 2017, which was not the case in 2018. Data for 2018 is therefore not completely comparable with the data from 2017.
The data only includes energy consumption in Swedish operations. The electricity is limited to the amount purchased from our main contracted suppliers, which is estimated to be around 50 percent of the electricity purchased for Swedish operations.
The electricity is environmentally declared. The data for the fuel is based on liters purchased. The energy content is calculated in GJ with the help of conversion factors from fuel suppliers. In cases where conversion factors have not been available for a specific fuel, factors have been assumed based on the fuel’s similarity to other fuels. The conversion factor used for electricity and fuel is 1 MWh = 3.6 GJ (Environmental Protection Agency 2018).
