The topic will be included in the environmental data collection process within the next reporting cycles.

2Comment As per defined Sustainability Targets 2020, GF set the goal to increase energy efficiency. The calculation thereof is a direct inverse of that for energy intensity.

3Comment The types of waste disposal used by GF sites are indicated in the breakdown provided within the "Environmental performance indicators" table. No other disposal methods are applicable. The information on waste disposal methods is collected from and provided to the sites by waste disposal contractors.

4Omission To the best of our knowledge, no incidents of non-compliance with environmental laws or regulations took place during the reporting period
