EPRA Best Practices Recommendations on Sustainability Reporting (sBPR)

In the area of sustainability, has also developed a standard that makes the environmental performance of real estate companies measurable and comparable and takes real estate-specific features into account.

In June 2017, Vonovia published its second Sustainability Report on the 2016 fiscal year. As in the previous year, Vonovia reports its key consumption and emissions figures in accordance with the Best Practice Recommendations on Sustainability Reporting (sBPR). In our last Sustainability Report, we were able to considerably expand the reporting on our key environmental figures – the Report received a Silver Award from EPRA. The key energy consumption and CO2 figures for our portfolio are based on the consumption of resources in rented areas which is, in turn, calculated on the basis of statements prepared by the utilities companies. In some cases, the billing periods are very long and depend on numerous suppliers, meaning that the required statements are not yet available at the time the 2017 Annual Report is published and can only be published in the next Sustainability Report. This is why we refer to the key figures for 2016 in this chapter.

The 2017 Sustainability Report will be published in June 2018.

Environmental Performance Measures

Energy Consumption in Business Operations

The environmental key figures for Vonovia’s business operations include the vehicle fleet (fuel consumption) and the head office in Bochum (electricity consumption and heating). We are planning to also include the energy consumption of our two customer service centers in Duisburg and Dresden in the next reporting period. This will enable us to expand the underlying data for our business operations even further. We do not have any figures on energy consumption at the customer service centers at the moment.

Energy Consumption of Our Portfolio

Unless otherwise indicated, the key figures relate to 100% of the rented units (ru), comprising 360,513 residential and commercial units (2015) and 333,381 residential and 3,405 commercial units (2016). The relative key figures (intensity figures) are provided for each rented unit. This unit has been selected since the square meter figures for the communal areas are not available and it is not possible to divide up consumption between the living and communal areas. Since Vonovia’s apartments are very similar in terms of their size and fittings, this reference value enables comparability over a multiple-year period.

EPRA

For the year 2015, the absolute electricity consumption figures relate to the communal areas for 360,513 rented units (100%, residential and commercial) and for 2016 to the communal areas comprising 333,381 residential units (100%) and 3,405 commercial units (100%).

*

The absolute figures for 2015 and 2016 are not directly comparable due to the inexact consumption figures for 2015, particularly due to the merger with GAGFAH. Even after the complete consolidation of the old GAGFAH, retrospective recalculation was not possible due to the lack of data. Accordingly, the figures will only be comparable from the next reporting year onward.

**

In 2016, Vonovia purchased 51,600.0 MWh of electricity. Of this amount, 85% was regionally allocated. This corresponds to approx. 243,583 rented properties. 100% allocation is not possible, since a single electricity meter may supply two different buildings. The remaining 15% is currently undergoing registration (mainly Southeast) and cannot therefore be regionally allocated at the present time.

A total of 161,780 rented units were included in the like-for-like assessment. This corresponds to approx. 48% of the residential and commercial units in 2016.

***

For 67% of electricity consumption, the figures were calculated on the basis of the energy mix of our largest electricity supplier. The remaining 33% was calculated on the basis of the average figures for Germany in 2015 and 2016 provided by the German Working Group on Energy Balances (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen e. V.).

The consumption figures for natural gas, heating oil and district heating relate to residential and commercial units. 2015: 360,513 rented units (100%, residential and commercial); 2016: 333,381 residential units (100%) and 3,405 commercial units (100%).

Natural gas consumption (absolute) in 2015 and 2016 relates to consolidated consumption for all heating centers. 97% of the total volume of natural gas consumption in MWh has been regionally allocated. The remaining 3% is currently undergoing registration and cannot be regionally allocated at the present time. Overall, 122,814 rented units are supplied.

A total of 121,407 rented properties were included in the like-for-like assessment. This corresponds to 99% of the rented units supplied with natural gas.

Heating oil consumption (absolute) in 2015 and 2016 relates to consolidated consumption for all heating centers. 87% of the total volume of heating oil consumption in MWh has been regionally allocated. The remaining 13% is currently undergoing registration and cannot be regionally allocated at the present time. Overall, 11,303 rented units are supplied with heating oil.

A total of 9,904 rented properties were included in the like-for-like assessment. This corresponds to 88% of the rented units supplied with heating oil.

****

The absolute figures for 2015 and 2016 are not directly comparable due to the inexact consumption figures for 2015, particularly due to the merger with GAGFAH. Even after the complete consolidation of the old GAGFAH, retrospective recalculation was not possible due to the lack of data. Accordingly, the figures will only be comparable from the next reporting year onward. The regional distribution of the district heating consumption (2016) was based on only on actual, not estimated, consumption.

*****

Extrapolation to total portfolio and district heating stations not yet registered, according to consumption figures available for registered stations per m2 of living area. For 2015, an actual consumption figure of 270 GWh was extrapolated to the overall portfolio. The same procedure was followed for 2016, and an actual consumption figure of 455 GWh was extrapolated to the overall portfolio.

******

This figure has been adjusted by comparison with the previous year.

For the calculation of the absolute key figures, 169,983 rented units were included for 2015 and 201,412 rented units for 2016 for which the water position and the wastewater position have been apportioned separately from one another on the basis of the ancillary costs bill. Consumption relates to the rentable and communal areas. Only consumption per delivery point can be registered. It is not possible to present rentable and communal areas separately.

Consumption in m3 has been calculated on the basis of regional average prices per m3. For this purpose, the average figures of the three largest utilities in each region were determined.

For the like-for-like assessment, 141,691 rented units were included for which the water position and the wastewater position are apportioned separately from one another on the basis of the ancillary costs bill. Consumption has been calculated analogously to the absolute figures. This corresponds to 42% of the residential and commercial units in 2016.

170,064 rented units were included for 2015 and 200,998 rented units for 2016 for which the water position and the wastewater position have been apportioned separately from one another on the basis of the ancillary costs bill. The wastewater volume relates to the rentable and communal areas. Only the volume per delivery point can be registered. It is not possible to present rentable and communal areas separately.

The volume in m3 has been calculated on the basis of regional average prices per m3. For this purpose, the average figures of the three largest utilities in each region were determined.

The waste volume, which is for 357,117 apartments (2015) and 333,381 apartments (2016), is based on estimated figures. The estimate is based on weekly average figures per rented unit and type of waste. These average figures are based on the waste containers provided and their volume, not the actual quantity filled. These figures are only available by volume, not on the basis of weight, as is common practice in Germany. The metric ton figures are therefore based on conversion factors for each type of waste (residual waste: 0.1 kg/l, waste paper: 0.17 kg/l, Green Dot: 0.03; organic waste: 0.25).

These figures do not represent households’ actual waste volumes, since not all of the rented units’ waste is disposed of via the containers provided by Vonovia; waste paper is also disposed of via public recycling containers, recycled waste is also disposed of in yellow bags, and tenants can also use their organic waste for composting.

A like-for-like calculation has been omitted. The figures for 2015 and 2016 are both based on estimates, and the basis for estimates in terms of like-for-like calculations are identical to the absolute figures.
