We monitor the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the group's operating activities. The organizational boundaries of the reported emissions include: (1) in the case of PKO Bank Polski data for this entity alone (100% of emissions), (2) in the case of group data: the bank and all its subsidiaries in accordance with the bank's operational control (100% of emissions of each entity). Consolidation covers all levels of the group. The reported emissions cover Scope 1, 2 and Scope 3. Emissions in Scope 3 were extended to include data relating to subsidiaries, emissions generated at the stage of production of fuels and fuels to generate electricity and emissions related to the generation of electricity lost during transmission and distribution (WTT - Weel to Tank) and rental of business space.
We calculated the emissions using the revised Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG) Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (revised) using the market-based and location-based methods. The bank recalculated the base year 2019 for Scope 1 - the DEFRA emission indicators database was used, and for Scope 2 - the National Centre for Emissions Management (KOBiZE) ratios were used after taking into account transmission losses and balance sheet differences.

Direct emissions of the Bank’s Capital Group as a result of fuel combustion in sources owned by it and purchase of refrigerants
Indirect emissions of the Bank's Capital Group resulting from the use of purchased electricity and heat
TIndirect emissions of the Bank’s Capital Group arising from business travel,employees commuting, WTT, and lease of space
In 2022, the Bank’s Group's emissions decreased by 4.3%, y/y, in Scope 1 and 2, what was the result of decrease in the emissions in the Bank and in subsidiaries. Direct emissions from the use of fuel in buildings and indirect emissions from the purchase of electricity and thermal energy decreased, and direct emissions from the consumption of fuels used in vehicles (an increase in passages) and emissions from refrigerants, the result of the increased loss and thus the increased volume of supplemented refrigerants, have increased.
The Bank calculated GHG emissions intensity ratios for the purpose of comparison with the market. Total 1+2 Scope emissions for the Bank’s Group were used in the calculation. In this way, a full picture was obtained of the carbon footprint generated as a result of the operating activities.
