Overview of energy and environmental objectives in Telekom Slovenije92

Table: assessed achievement of energy and environmental objectives in 2014

COMMITMENT I: To reduce energy consumption and emissions into the environment
Framework objective A: To reduce electricity consumption by 7% by 31 December 2015 (in kWh; base year 2009). Supplemented during the year with a procedural key performance indicator for the Company – decrease of 2% relative to 2013 (achieved).
Operational objective Deadline Assessment and comment
A1. Energy management system and system for the targeted monitoring of energy consumption operable – at least 90% of consumption included. 30 October 2014 Basic requirements met; optimisation of effects still required.
A2. To install analysers at the time of the processing of electrical connections: 2014 objective – 20 locations (additional use of air conditioning units). Phased approach
(phase milestone: 31
December 2014)
Around 60 analysers included – multi-year task continues in 2015 in a reduced scope.
A3. To install air conditioning units with simple ventilation at locations less exposed to heat: objective for 2014 – 5 locations. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Around 50 minor air conditioning installations completed at base stations. Multi-year task continues in 2015 in a reduced scope.
A4. To replace defective air conditioning units with energy efficient systems. Phased approach
(phase milestone: 31
December 2014)
Around 100 units replaced in 2014; activities continue in 2015.
A5. To identify and eliminate/reduce the power used by technologically redundant equipment and delivery points – minimum of three locations a year. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Implemented primarily at locations where we are separated from Pošta Slovenije’s system; additional closure of premises and shut of TSmedia’s Stegne delivery point.
A6. To raise temperature limit values in key technological rooms. Phase 3 – control over implementation. 30 June 2014 Previous activities successfully completed; further control over implementation required.
A7. To accelerate the server virtualisation. Phase objective: 31 December 2014 Process continues – virtualisation rate of 67% exceeded.
Framework objective B: To improve the efficiency of fuel consumption in the car fleet by 5% by 31 December 2015 (in litres/100 km; base year 2009).
B1. To reduce the number of company vehicles by 2% relative to the situation as at 31 December 2011. 31 December 2014 The number of vehicles was reduced by 1% relative to 2013. The number of vehicles was down by 7% relative to 2011 (the figure in 2011 did not take into account the merger of Mobitel).
B2. To reduce the number of work-related kilometres travelled by 2% relative to 2011. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) The number of work-related kilometres travelled was up 2% relative to 2013. The aforementioned increase was the result of an increase in the scope of field sales and the elimination of the effects of extraordinary environmental conditions at the beginning of the year (ice storm).
B3. To improve the age structure of the car fleet; reduce the average vehicle age by three months relative to the situation as at 1 July 2011. 31 December 2014 Improvement in the age structure is slower than planned due to organisational changes in specific years and shorter vehicle replacement cycles.
B4. To define criteria for the purchase of vehicles under normal procurement procedures (max. 160 gCO2eq /km). 31 December 2014 Objective achieved.
B5. To optimise deliveries to common locations – phase 3. 31 December 2014 Achieved – rationalisation of deliveries to specific locations.
B6. To comprehensively analyse the effects and development of transport between locations by minibus. 1 September 2014 Analysis completed; transport supplemented with the Vojkova 58 and Litostrojska locations.
B7. To upgrade analytics and monitor the costs of the car fleet, and take immediate steps when major deviations are identified. 1 November 2014 The reporting system was upgraded for analytical purposes in 2014. Major deviations are now being monitored and measures implemented.
COMMITMENT II: To reduce the quantity of general waste and emissions
Framework objective C: To reduce the volume of mixed municipal waste by 10% by 31 December 2015 (base year 2009).
C1. To eliminate 10 additional locations, where there is no municipal waste, from the collection system. 31 December 2014 Objective 60% achieved; several municipalities have adopted ordinances that significantly hinder realisation.
C2. To secure/cross-link two ecological islands in 2014.. 31 December 2014 Objective carried forward to 2015 due to a lack of funds in 2014.
C3. To introduce fixed recyclable transportation packaging – phase 3. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Implemented; in final phase.
Framework objective D: To connect 100% of treated wastewater to public sewerage systems by 31 December 2015, and to control costs and water consumption.
D1. To draft an action plan addressing the public sewerage system and individual treatment facilities. 30 September 2014 Plan drafted (legally defined deadline: 2017).
D2. To update the records of locations that are not connected to the public sewerage network. 1 December 2014 Records established in SUN.
D3. To verify the availability of documentation on oil traps and whether that documentation is up to date. 1 November 2014 Partially implemented; some activities in progress.
Framework objective E: To ensure complete safety when handling hazardous materials (reduce risks of spills, etc.).
E1. To purchase and maintain functioning equipment for measures in the event of a spill of hazardous materials. Permanent task All know needs fulfilled.
E2. To replace standard batteries for the backup power supply with valve regulated systems – 1 location + regular maintenance of existing systems. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Objective achieved (Krško). No additional replacements are envisaged in 2015.
E3. To update documentation regarding tanks, oil traps, hydrants and sewerage systems.. 30 September 2014 Tanks – 17 locations; other areas to a lesser degree. Not yet completed at all locations.
E4. To replace air conditioning units that use Freon 22 with a more environmentally friendly refrigerant (regulatory requirement). 31 December 2014 In the final phase; units are being replaced when they malfunction. Activities continue in 2015.
Framework objective F: To reduce noise and emissions into the atmosphere by modernising technological devices.
F1. To upgrade generators – one new generator in 2014/2015. To reduce emissions and noise below levels required by environmental permits; elimination at two locations and control over additional locations. 30 December 2014 One new generator (Brežice); control over 10
additional generators. No generators were
eliminated, as even old ones proved useful during
the spring ice storm.
F2. To conduct energy audits (2014: technical inspections for four buildings – recording of situation and analysis; enhanced monitoring of the implementation of measures. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Several energy audits were performed as
planned (a total of 56 over three years).
F3. To draw up the required energy performance certificates for Telekom Slovenije facilities. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Not yet completed for all locations that are in the process of being sold or under long-term leases. Objective in 2015, as well.
F4. To identify and regulate locations where savings in heating are possible (turning off central heating without additional investment, completion of campaign with Pošta Slovenije). Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Carried out at two locations (Litija and Kidričeva in Nova Gorica), and in progress at locations in Šempeter and Velenje. Activities continue in 2015, as progress depends on investments by Pošta Slovenije.
F5. To record the situation with regard to external lighting. Phased approach (phase milestone: 31 December 2014) Situation report not yet completed – funds were secured for replacement prior to the extension of the legally prescribed deadline (Kranj and Dragomer completed; in progress in Celje Golovec, Koper at the Vojkova location).
Other energy and environmental objectives in 2014*
G0. To allocate energy costs by those responsible for such costs. 31 December 2014 A systematic solution is required; the objective is therefore carried forward to 2015 (implementation in progress).
G1. Fire safety: to conduct measurements and update documentation for lightning conductors and installations. Phase milestone: 31 December 2014 Intensive field work (Ljubljana and Maribor); additional activities required at major locations (measurements planned for 2015).
G2. To update the environmental communication plan and participate in at least three environmental campaigns with external service providers. 31 December 2014 Enhanced energy and environment communication: increased number of electronic publications.
G3. To conduct environmental training in the form of at least two internally organised seminars for 400 Group employees in 2014 at the “environmental primary school”. 31 December 2014 Annual meeting in the form of multipurpose seminars by sector and department. Environmental primary school in the scope of mandatory occupational and fire safety training.
