AIR indicator reflects the total greenhouse gas emission directly or indirectly associated with the company activities (GHG Inventory). Total emissions are divided into three categories: direct emissions generated from sources of ownership or under the control of the company (Scope 1-Direct emissions); indirect emissions due to the company's energy consumption (Scope 2-Energy indirect emissions); indirect emissions generated by sources not owned or controlled by the company not related to energy consumption (Scope 3-Other indirect emissions).
The result is graphically represented by the ring, where the total emissions are expressed in tons of CO2 equivalents (tCO2eq) and the colored segments represent the contribution of each Scope.

Scope 1 – Direct emissions
Scope 2 – Energy indirect emissions
Scope 3 – Other indirect emissions
