  6. 6. Adasa has a methodology 1 to identify environmental aspects associated with its work, determining which of these may significantly affect the environment and monitoring them in order to set goals and objectives. ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS EVALUATION Office –Laboratory RDi - Workshop ASPECTS OPERATING CONDITIONS SIGNIFICANT Direct (D) Indirect (I) Normal Abnormal Emergency WASTE Paper and Cardboard X D Batteries X D Cell Batteries X D Fluorescent lamps X D Toner X D Plastic containers X D Urban waste X D Glass containers X D Contaminated absorbent paper X D Chemical reagents X D WEEE Waste electrical and electronical equipment X D CONSUMPTIONS Water X D Electricity X D Fuel X X D Paper X D Toner Consumption=waste X D EMISSIONS and SPILLS Emissions Greenhouse Gases X X D/I Sewerage X D/I Calibration Gases Meteorological Stations X D/I Table 1. Environmental Aspects Evaluation - Offices 2015 (corresponds to the beginning of 2016) 1 To consult the methodology used for environmental aspects evaluation, contact the ES supervisor via the contact information listed on the last page. The evaluation is carried out separately by branch, and the overall result is shown in the ES, specifying the branch associated with the aspect if is significant.
  7. 7. The environmental aspects evaluation related to the projects carried out by ADASA in 2015 found the fuel consumption as a significant aspect, therefore a reduction goal was set (Chapter 5) for reducing its environmental impact. Related to the projects, the next table shows the significant aspects registered and the actions carried out in this period (2016). SIGNIFICANT ASPECTS ACTIVITY ACTIONS Atmospheric emissions Equipment and Machinery Equipment inspections and worksite audits. Hazardous Waste generation Water Quality Stations Maintenance Avoid accidental reagents spills to Surface water. Working equipment conditions control. Energy Supply Waste management according to the law and waste valorisation to optimize costs. Resources consumption (fuel) Travelling on business Driving efficiency training. Table 2. Environmental aspects evaluation-Projects 2015 (corresponds to the beginning of the 2016) The objectives were set in accordance with the Environmental Policy, the applicable legal requirements and the environmental aspects evaluated at the beginning of the period (Chapter 4). DECREASE FUEL CONSUMPTION FROM TRAVELLING BY 15% The indicator registered in 2016 shows a Total fuel consumption decrease by 41% and per vehicle by 16%. In 2016, ADASA has promoted and organised several courses in order to train the employees in driving efficiency.
  8. 8. 6. ENVIRONMENTAL BEHAVIOUR In July, the former Headquarters (Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona) has moved to a new Office building in El Prat de Llobregat, Barcelona. Therefore, the data presented in ES (Environmental Statement) corresponds to both and it should be taken into account for any comparison with last three years. The waste generated because of the relocation is shown in page 16. A summary of environmental behaviour is provided for 2016 and a comparison is shown with respect to 2015 and 2014. Even though environmental behaviour is assessed by centre, data provided from the Headquarters (El Prat, Barcelona) represents the large proportion. In case that a significant change was detected in other offices the ES would show specifically the causes identified. The source data is delivered by authorized waste managers contracted by ADASA. In case of offices located in corporate buildings (COMSA) are used aggregate data and the indicator is calculated as consumption/waste per employee. In 2016, the total consumption registered was 226 MWh. The average consumption per employee was 2,02 MWh and it means a non-significant increase by 5%. 1,65 1,75 1,85 1,95 2,05 2,15 2,25 2014 2015 2016 MWh/employee Electricity consumption per employee Graph 1.

Fuel consumption per employee and per vehicle. The overall fuel consumption has decreased by 41%, per vehicle by 16% (Graph 2) and it has been registered a consumption per employee decrease by 43% with respect to 2015. The implementation of energy efficiency criteria (less consumption and emissions with the same performance) shows a significant improvement. Regarding the employees, efficient driving courses are also provided to reduce these parameters. Indicator – Fuel consumption per vehicle and per employee 2014 2015 2016 1921 l/vehicle 517 l/employee 1578 l/vehicle 464 l/employee A= 27921 l; B2= 21 vehicles A/B1= 1330 l/vehicles A= 27921 l; B2= 106 employees A/B2= 263 l/employees Decrease by 16% per vehicle and by 43% per employee with respect to 2015.

  12. 12. In order to calculate the consumption of toners and cartridges, it is taken into account the consumption equal to the waste generated. The higher consumption corresponds to the Headquarters (El Prat, Barcelona) because of a larger number of copying and printing devices. 0,1 0,2 0,3 0,4 0,5 0,6 2014 2015 2016 kg/employee kg Toner per employee Graph 5. Toner consumption/waste per employee. In 2016 it has been registered a reduction of 68% due to a significant increase of safe mode printing. In order to reduce toner consumption it has been implemented preventive actions like reducing number of prints, using draft formats in case of internal documents and promoting ink-saving fonts (ecofont). Indicator – Toner consumption per employee 2014 2015 2016 0,6 kg/employee 0,55 kg/employee A= 18,45 kg; B= 106 employees A/B= 0,17 kg/employees (0,00017t/employees) Decrease by 68% respect to 2015.

NOISE The source of the noise pollution generated by ADASA is its motor vehicles and some specific work carried out at the workshop located at the Hospitalet (Barcelona) Office. At some sites (when the use of machinery by subcontracted companies is required) some noise pollution peaks may occur. Even so, no corrective action was required to be taken in 2011 relative to the noise levels that were produced directly and indirectly. DUST ADASA generates dust emissions in projects requiring civil outsource. In order to minimize the environmental impact it’s necessary to carry out the following measures:  Irrigate the soil especially during the summer months.  Place a tarp on top of the vehicle that generates dust.  Restrict traffic of machinery and vehicles.  Carry out the dustier activities when it affects less people. FUGITIVE EMISSIONS (Air Conditioning) During 2016, it has not been required maintenance actions in refrigeration system. In 2013, Adasa identified an approved substitute (R434A) for R-22. R434A is not harmful (Ozone Depletion Potential , ODP = 0) but with a higher Global Warming Potential (GWP = 2661) tan R-22. By keeping maintenance records it is possible to control gas emitted to atmosphere. Finally the associated impact (GWP -Global Warming Potential) is calculated. The fugitive emissions by air conditioning are included in total carbon calculation (CO2eq) (next page, 15).
  14. 14. GREENHOUSE GASES The activities that ADASA carries out that directly emit greenhouse gases are travelling by car, train and aircraft. Indirectly, CO2 is also emitted through the consumption of electrical power, which is in part obtained by burning fossil fuels. In 2014, fugitive emissions of the Headquarter Office (Barcelona) have been included. In 2015 the emissions related to waste management have been also included. In 2016, fugitive emissions from air conditioning come from R-410A due to the Headquarters relocation. However, during 2016 it has not been required maintenance actions in refrigeration system. The Indicator recorded (2,2 t CO2 per employee) decreased by 42% with respect to 2015. It has probably occurred due to km increase by plane and by car. Car trips recorded 23% of the total km and a 31% of contribution to total emissions.

Waste identification. NH: Non Hazardous, H: Hazardous. In order to properly separate the waste, specific containers are available at the different office sites and waste areas are designated for storing each type of waste so that it can be subsequently collected by the authorized waste manager, which guarantees the assessment and specific treatment. ENVIRONMENTAL EXPENSES Most of the organization’s environmental expenses correspond to waste management and preventive actions associated with the projects and personnel (training). In 2016, total expenses have been approximately 13.000€. TOTAL WASTE It has been recorded a significant decrease in total waste per employee (10%), due to the variability of the waste generated depending on the projects developed. The total waste (paper-cardboard, plastic, non-hazardous electric and electronical waste) generated because of the Headquarters relocation have been registered separately from ordinary waste (Total waste indicator). Therefore, waste relocation indicator has registered 12028 kg, 128 kg/employee. Indicator – Total Waste1 2014 2015 2016 53 kg/employee 38,8 kg/employee A= 3724 kg; B= 106 employees A/B= 35 kg/employee (0,035t/employee) Decrease by 10% respect to 2015. 1 It doesn’t take into account non-segregated waste (urban waste). The waste that is not selectively collected is generated by Hospitalet (Barcelona) and is managed by an authorized waste manager. Due to the small amount of waste generated at Madrid, waste is managed using urban containers.
  16. 16. Paper waste has decreased by 6% respect to last period and data recorded per employee is 16,6 kg/employee. Awareness campaigns regarding the use of digital formats have been carried out in 2016 for stakeholders such as employees, suppliers and subcontracted personnel. Graph 8. Paper and cardboard waste per employee. There are specific waste containers located in the offices, managed periodically by the authorised waste manager, in order to valorise paper and cardboard. Packaging materials in good conditions like cardboard boxes are always reused and it helps the company reducing costs and also reduces environmental impact.

  19. 19. A Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Action Plan is drafted for each project in order to identify and assess the specific environmental hazards and all the procedures and elements that must be taken into account to ensure correct environmental management; waste management preventive and corrective actions, good environmental practice data sheets, etc. The Action Plan is communicated to ADASA stakeholders involved on the project in order to guarantee its accomplishment. Due to ADASA’s activity, the generation of waste is variable and depends on projects needs. 1 Waste Project site materials (batteries, cables,…) are not represented as a ratio of total value per employee (A/B) because this indicator has variable generation and low representativeness and is not significant according to the environmental analysis – Chapter 2.3.2.2 Commission Decision of 4 March (2013/131/UE).

  20. 20. 7. LEGAL COMPLIANCE Adasa identifies records and reviews the applicable legal environmental requirements and the requirements of voluntary commitments it has acquired. Adasa currently has no open disciplinary proceedings or proceedings in environmental matters and compliance with all legal requirements applicable. All offices included in the EMAS register have an environmental licence (El Prat (Barcelona), Madrid). In 2016 ADASA has communicated to ECOTIC (Extended Producer Responsibility System) the number of equipment manufactured in order to meet legal requirements according to waste electric and electronical equipment generation (WEEE) regulation. Annually ADASA presents the waste Declaration (el Prat, Barcelona), exempt for the other offices because of the nature and the quantity of waste materials generated. Building inspections are conducted (BT, lifting equipment, fire extinguishing systems, etc.). 8. STAKEHOLDERS Adasa ratified its commitment to social and economic and especially environmental sustainability, which is in fact the core business of the Company. The drafting of a Dialogue Map for stakeholders has enabled the most suitable action to be applied with collaborators, clients, suppliers, employees and other companies which are working in the same sector.
  21. 21. 9. TRAINING AND COMMUNICATION ADASA keeps employees involved in activities or practices in order to reach the set goals and objectives. In the Employee Portal the staff could contribute and exchange information with other employees. This information is analysed by the Environmental, Quality and Health&Safety Committee.
