BNY MELLON ENTERPRISE ESG 100 APPENDIX 302-2 Energy consumption outside of the organization BNY Mellon follows The Corporate Standard Greenhouse Gas Protocol for calculating emissions and energy use. An Operational Control boundary is used. BNY Mellon considers energy consumed from purchased goods and services, capital goods, fuel-and-energy-related activities, upstream transportation and distribution, business travel, employee commuting, downstream leased assets, and investments relevant to our operations. For more detail on methodologies and assumptions used, please see CDP response 2020. Conversions for Fuel and Electricity were done with the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Energy Conversion Calculator. 302-3 Energy intensity a. Energy intensity ratio: 62.84 gigajoules per million dollars; 0.90 gigajoules per square foot. b. Denominators: 2021 revenue (15,931 million dollars); 2021 average rentable square feet of real estate portfolio (11,180,541 sq. ft.). c. Fuel, electricity and steam are included; BNY Mellon does not consume additional sources of heating or cooling. d. The ratio uses energy consumed within the organization within BNY Mellon’s operational control scope 1 and 2. 302-4 Reduction of energy consumption 625,309 gigajoules. Fuel, electricity and steam are included; BNY Mellon does not consume additional sources of heating and cooling. BNY Mellon’s base year is 2010 for energy tracking. 2010 was chosen as the base year because this was this first year we were able to effectively measure energy consumption. Energy consumption in 2010 was rebaselined due to increase in accuracy of activity data. BNY Mellon’s energy reduction was calculated by subtracting 2021 energy consumption from the base year’s energy consumption. This reduction is the result of ongoing real estate portfolio optimization initiatives and specific energy reduction projects. BNY Mellon sets its energy reduction targets in the form of emission reduction targets as these are a surrogate for energy targets. BNY Mellon calculates its total energy consumption in conjunction with calculating its greenhouse gas inventory. Therefore, The Greenhouse Gas Protocol: A Corporate Accounting and Reporting A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (Revised Edition) is the published methodology and standard used in energy and emission calculation.
