[1] The intensity index is calculated without taking into account all of the Scope 3 emissions, but rather only those
generated from the Group’s projects (i.e. arising from the activities of subcontractors), thus excluding those
resulting from freight forwarding and staff travel.
[2] The normalization factor used for the intensity rates is represented by the revenues of the year.
[3] The calculation of the waste intensity rate does not include excavation waste, since it is closely related to the
design choices defined by the clients, and there is little scope for influencing it during construction.
