  2. 2. The Environmental Statement is made in accordance with Annex IV of Regulation (EC) No. 1221/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council of 25 November 2009, which allows organizations to voluntarily adhere to a community management and environmental auditing system (EMAS). This information is updated and validated annually by an accredited inspector. The Environmental Statement is updated and validated annually by an accredited inspector. The objective of the Environmental Statement (ES) is the announcement to the public and other interested parties of the constant improvements of the impact and environmental behaviour of the organization. The ES informs the relevant parties (public, local communities, users, etc.) about the activities that the organization considers relevant (selection and evaluation of environmental aspects). All the data is taken from the year 2017 and the evolution from the years 2015 and 2016 has been noted. The environmental system EMAS implemented in ADASA has other information from other sources than the ES, as it is required in the Regulation (CE) Nº 1221/2009. In 2017 it has been adapted to the new considerations of the New Regulation (UE) 2017/1505 even though many of them had already been adopted with the standard UNE-EN ISO 14001:2015. ADASA’s Management is grateful to all the staff for their collaboration and participation in the achievement of the environmental objectives planned and in the improvement of the Organization’s environmental behaviour.

To establish the requirements related to products and services according to international standards and specific requirements, in order to reach the clients’ satisfaction and guarantee the continuous improvement. To train all the team working on the importance of the integrated management, in order to guarantee the participation of all employees in every activity developed by Adasa. To give a management processes approach, identifying and considering work risks and environmental impacts. Try to eliminate and minimize those aspects that cannot be avoided, as well as prevent them in order to achieve continuous improvement and contamination prevention.
  6. 6. Adasa has a methodology 1 to identify environmental aspects associated with its activity, from a life cycle point of view, in those that it can control or influence. This method also quantifies which of those aspects can have a greater environmental impact, to proceed with a tracing to establish objectives and goals. With this system there are two main activity lines: 1. PROJECT/SERVICES MANAGEMENT 2. EQUIPMENT PRODUCTION Both have a similar life cycle, with the following phases: As a result of the identification and evaluation of the environmental aspects we reach this data, shown by branch: ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS EVALUATION Office –Laboratory RDi – Workshop (Barcelona Branch) ASPECTS OPERATING CONDITIONS SIGNIFICANT Direct (D) Indirect (I) Normal Abnormal Emergency WASTE Paper and Cardboard X D Batteries X D Cell Batteries X D Fluorescent lamps X D Toner X D Plastic containers X X D Urban waste X D Glass containers X X D Contaminated absorbent paper X X D Chemical reagents X X D WEEE Waste electrical and electronical equipment X X D CONSUMPTIONS

Environmental Aspects Evaluation – Madrid Branch 2016 (corresponds to the beginning of 2017) 1 To consult the methodology used for environmental aspects evaluation, contact the ES supervisor via the contact information listed on the last page. The evaluation is carried out separately by branch, and the overall result is shown in the ES, specifying the branch associated with the aspect if is significant. The evaluation of environmental aspects registered the waste derived from laboratory activity, the waste from electrical and electronic material and the consumption of paper as the relevant aspects.
  8. 8. Consequently an objective was established for the reduction of paper consumption for the next period (2017). See chapter 5. Regarding laboratory waste, they were identified as relevant, however there will be no actions implemented given that this activity will stop. The waste from electrical and electronic material is dependent on the movement and renovation of equipment for the organization and other clients (out of the organizations control). The rest of the aspects are shown in Table 3, with the actions planned for 2018. SIGNIFICANT ASPECTS ACTIVITY ACTIONS Atmospheric emissions Equipment and Machinery Control of the regulated revisions of the machinery and adequate maintenance Hazardous Waste generation Water Quality Stations Maintenance Control of the concentration of solutions poured (very diluted by the analizing equipment operation) Energy Supply Adequate management of the batteries through an authorized manager. Sale of the waste to valorize it Resources consumption (fuel) Travelling on business Communication of good practices (course in efficient driving) Table 3. Environmental aspects evaluation-Projects 2016 (corresponds to the beginning of the 2017) The objectives were set in accordance with the Environmental Policy, the applicable legal requirements and the environmental aspects evaluated at the beginning of the period (Chapter 4). DECREASE PAPER CONSUMPTION BY 15% The indicator for paper consumption shows a 25% global increase and a 92% relative consumption to worker. The objective has not been met due to the fact that in 2017 there has been a 58% increase in offers, relative to 2016 (257 offers in 2017, 163 offers in 2016). The increase is more accused in the relative to worker due to a significant reduction of the staff.
  9. 9. 6. ENVIRONMENTAL BEHAVIOUR In July 2016, the Headquarters were moved from Hospitalet (Barcelona) to El Prat (Barcelona). The data is shown for both places and should be considered while comparing with previous years. The 2017 environmental behavior will be compared with that of the years 2015 and 2014. Even though data is analyzed by branch it is presented as global given the weight of the branch in these parameters. If there are significant variations discovered in one branch they will be presented separately. The origin of this data are the invoices of the manager. In the case of Madrid’s branch which is inside a Corporative building, the global data will be analyzed and then prorated by person. During 2017 the total consumption of the organization was 160 MWh. The consumption for worker was 2,32 MWh. The global consumption has decreased in 30%, but there has been an increase in the consumption per worker of 10%. In the case of Barcelona’s branch, the consumption by worker has not changed significantly. In the case of Madrid’s branch there is more variability because the data comes from a corporate building. Graph 1. Electrical consumption per employee. Indicator – Electricity consumption per employee BRANCH 2015 2016 2017 GLOBAL 2,02 MWh/employee 2,13 MWh/ employee A= 160 MWh; B= 69 employees A/B= 2,32 MWh/employee Barcelona (El Prat) 2,22 MWh/employee 2,36 MWh/employee A= 145 MWh; B= 61 employees A/B= 2,38 MWh/employee Madrid 0,68 MWh/employee 0,38 MWh/employee o A= 15 MWh; B= 8 employees A/B= 1,89 MWh/employee Increase of 10% of consumption per worker with respect to 2016 It is also important to note that since 2017 the organization has changed the electric source and now buys green energy for its consumption.
  10. 10. The global consumption of petrol (cars) during 2017 was 64.631 l. This consumption is shown as 2394 l/vehicle and 937 l/employee. There has been an increase in consumption due to the increase in maintenance projects that require more trips. Graph 2. Fuel consumption per employee and per vehicle. Indicator – Fuel consumption per vehicle and per employee 2015 2016 2017 1578 l/vehicle 464 l/employee 2002 l/vehicle 397 l/employee A=64.631 l; B1= 27 vehicles A/B1= 2394 l/vehicles A= 64.631 l; B2= 69 employees A/B2= 937 l/employee 21% increase in consumption per vehicle and increase of 140% per worker with respect to 2016 Indicator – Energy Efficiency per employee 2015 2016 2017 6,6 MWh/employee 2 4,7 MWh/employee A1: Electrical consumption = 160 MWh A2: Fuel consumption = 635 MWh A1+A2=795 MWh; B= 69 employees A/B= 11,5 MWh/employee 1kg Gasoil =11,8 kWh (Source: IDAE). In the case of petrol consumption data is not segregated by branch due to insufficient data to do that analysis. The water consumption responds to the use of the worker for personal hygiene and drinking, and also for cleaning purposes.
  11. 11. The consumption in the Barcelona branch (El Prat) during 2017 was 650 m 3 and the consumption per worker was 10,7 m 3 . Graph 3. Water consumption per employee. Indicator – Water consumption per employee 2015 2016 2017 7,1 m 3 /employee 7,5 m 3 /employee A= 650 m 3 ; B= 69 employees A/B= 10,7 m3/employee Increase of 25% of water consumption per worker with respect to 2016 In the water consumption’s case the data is only for Barcelona’s branch because Madrid’s branch is renting the space and the data is not accessible for only their part of the building. Paper consumption is related to office work. During 2017 the global consumption was 0,935 t of paper. The global consumption per worker was 13,55 Kg, 92% more than 2016. Graph 4. Paper consumption per employee.
  12. 12. Indicator – Paper consumption per employee BRANCH 2015 2016 2017 GLOBAL 5.51 kg/employee 7,08 kg/employee A= 935 kg; B= 69 employees A/B= 13,55 kg/employee Barcelona (El Prat) 5.51 kg/employee 7,08 kg/employee A= 862,5 kg; B= 61 employees A/B= 14,14 kg/employee Madrid SD SD A= 72,5 kg; B= 8 employees A/B= 9,06 MWh/employee Increase of 92% in global consumption per worker with respect to 2016 Paper consumption is related to the needs of project that are being executed and the preparation of offers for clients, these are very variable. It must be stated that the increase of paper consumption is related to the increase in offers of 50% from 2016 to 2017 (257 offers in 2017, 163 offers in 2016). The increase is also greater due to the staff reduction in 2017. The paper used has an ecological certification (Der BlaueEngel) and 100% recycled. Adasa has a technical instruction, Green Practices at the Office in order to guarantee sustainability criteria in purchase process. The waste and consumption number in toner are considered equal. The greater consumption is given in the Barcelona branch due to the higher number of copy machines and printers. Graph 5. Toner consumption/waste per employee. In 2017 there was an increase of 147%, this increase has the same causes as the increase in paper consumption. The organization work in sensitization campaigns to reduce the number of printed documents, the use of draft styles in internal documents and the use of any mean that reduces ink consumption (ecofont).
  13. 13. Indicator – Toner consumption per employee SEDE 2015 2016 2017 GLOBAL 0,55 kg/employee 0,17 kg/employee A= 29,63 kg; B= 69 employees A/B= 0,43 kg/employee (0,00043 t/employees) Barcelona (El Prat) 0,55 kg/employee 0,12 kg/employee A= 19,50 kg; B= 61 employees A/B= 0,32 kg/employee Madrid 0,51 kg/employee 0,58 kg/employee A= 10,13 kg; B= 8 employees A/B= 1,27 kg/employee Increase of 147% in the global consumption of toner with respect to 2016 The toner consumption has increased in both branches due to the reasons previously explained. The data from Madrid’s branch is not a direct number but a number given by prorating Adasa’s worker inside the building. The biodiversity indicator is calculated by the occupation of the soil of the Adasa’s offices. Indicator – Biodiversity (Use of land) BRANCH 2015 2016 2017 GLOBAL 8,9 m 2 /employee 17,0 m 2 /employee A=2017m 2 ; B= 69 employees A/B=29,2 m2/employee Barcelona (El Prat) 9,1 m2 /employee 10,9 m2 /employee A= 1245 m2 ; B= 61 employees A/B= 20,4 m2 /employee Madrid 7,7 m2 /employee 64,3 m2 /employee A= 772 m2 ; B= 8 employees A/B= 96,5 m2 /employee Increase of 72% of the total occupancy per employee with respect to 2016 Significant increase due only to the reduction in the number of employees in the workforce, since they have maintained the same facilities as in the previous year in El Prat (Barcelona) and Madrid. NOISE The source of the noise pollution generated by ADASA is its motor vehicles and some specific work carried out at the workshop located at the Hospitalet (Barcelona) Office. At some sites (when the use of machinery by subcontracted companies is required) some noise pollution peaks may occur. Even so, no corrective action was required to be taken in 2011 relative to the noise levels that were produced directly and indirectly. DUST ADASA generates dust emissions in projects requiring civil outsource. In order to minimize the environmental impact, it’s necessary to carry out the following measures:  Irrigate the soil especially during the summer months.
  14. 14.  Place a tarp on top of the vehicle that generates dust.  Restrict traffic of machinery and vehicles.  Carry out the dustier activities when it affects less people. FUGITIVE EMISSIONS (Air Conditioning) During 2016, it has not been required maintenance actions in refrigeration system. In 2013, Adasa identified an approved substitute (R434A) for R-22. R434A is not harmful (Ozone Depletion Potential, ODP = 0) but with a higher Global Warming Potential (GWP = 2661) tan R-22. By keeping maintenance records, it is possible to control gas emitted to atmosphere. Finally, the associated impact (GWP -Global Warming Potential) is calculated. The fugitive emissions by air conditioning are included in total carbon calculation (CO2eq). GREENHOUSE GASES The activities that ADASA carries out that directly emit greenhouse gases are travelling by car, train and aircraft. Indirectly, CO2 is also emitted through the consumption of electrical power, which is in part obtained by burning fossil fuels. During 2017 it has not been required maintenance actions in refrigeration system. The Indicator recorded (5,0 t CO2 per employee) increased by 127% with respect to 2016. This increase, as discussed with the others the indicators, is affected by the significant reduction in the number of employees and the increase in fuel consumption associated to the augmentation in activity. Este aumento, tal y como se comenta con la mayoría de los indicadores se ve afectado por la reducción significativa del número de trabajadores y del aumento del consumo de combustible asociado al aumento de actividad.

Waste identification. NH: Non-Hazardous, H: Hazardous. In order to properly separate the waste, specific containers are available at the different office sites and waste areas are designated for storing each type of waste so that it can be subsequently collected by the authorized waste manager, which guarantees the assessment and specific treatment. TOTAL WASTE It has been recorded a decrease in total waste per employee (17%), due to the variability of the waste generated depending on the projects developed. Indicator – Total Waste1 2015 2016 2017 38,8 kg/employee 35,0 kg/employee A= 3074 kg; B= 69 employees A/B= 29,0 kg/employee (0,029 t/employee) Decrease by 17% respect to 2016 1 It doesn’t take into account non-segregated waste (urban waste). The waste that is not selectively collected is generated by Hospitalet (Barcelona) and is managed by an authorized waste manager. Due to the small amount of waste generated at Madrid, waste is managed using urban containers.
  16. 16. In 2017, the paper and cardboard waste has registered a value of 14 kg per employee, with a variation of 16% over the previous period. Awareness campaigns regarding the use of digital formats have been carried out in 2017 for stakeholders such as employees, suppliers and subcontracted personnel. Graph 8. Paper and cardboard waste per employee. There are specific waste containers located in the offices, managed periodically by the authorised waste manager, in order to valorise paper and cardboard. Packaging materials in good conditions like cardboard boxes are always reused and it helps the company reducing costs and also reduces environmental impact. Indicator – Paper and Cardboard waste per employee BRANCH 2015 2016 2017 GLOBAL 17,7 kg/employee 16,6 kg/employee A= 964 kg; B= 69 employees A/B= 14,0 kg/employee (0,014 t/employee) Barcelona (El Prat) 17,80 kg/employee 16,71 kg/employee A= 625 kg; B= 61 employees A/B= 10,2 kg/employee Madrid 16,59 kg/employee 15,53 kg/employee A= 336 kg; B= 8 employees A/B= 42,4 kg/employee Decrease of 16% consumptions per employee respect to 2016 Both globally and in Barcelona's branch, there is a significant decrease in paper and residual cardboard. The consumption of Madrid’s branch increases significantly, but it is not a reliable fact because it comes from the apportionment of the consumption of the whole plant according to the number of total workers and those of Adasa.
  17. 17. In 2017, a residual plastic value of 0,48 kg per employee has been registered, with a variation of 80% over the previous period. Plastic waste mainly originates from packaging and non-recycled containers. Plastic materials that are in good condition are reused like cardboard boxes. Graph 9. Plastic waste per employee. Indicator – Plastic waste per employee BRANCH 2015 2016 2017 GLOBAL 3,3 kg/employee 2,3 kg/employee A= 51,37 kg; B= 69 employees A/B=0,74 kg/employee (0,002t/employee) Barcelona (El Prat) 3,62 kg/employee 2,45 kg/employee A= 39,5 kg; B= 61 employees A/B= 0,65 kg/employee Madrid 16,59 kg/employee 15,53 kg/employee A= 11,87 kg; B= 8 employees A/B= 1,48 kg/employee Decrease of 80% plastic waste per employee respect to 2016. Both globally and in Barcelona's branch, a significant decrease in plastic residue is observed. The consumption of Madrid’s branch is maintained, although as in the cases of the consumption of electricity, toner and, waste of paper and paperboard the data come from the apportionment of the consumption of the complete plant according to the number of total workers and those of Adasa. Laboratory waste is generated through the preparation and replacement of reagents for water quality analysing equipment and waste reagents from R+D+i tests generated at Headquarters laboratory. Hazardous Waste has to be managed by law (legal requirements) and by the procedures included in Adasa’s Integrated Management System (certified by third party audit companies).

Laboratory and Workshop waste. Laboratory waste generation depends on R+D+i project needs therefore the indicator has been calculated respect to hours worked. It has been registered a significant decrease by almost 40% of Total hazardous waste, due to the cessation of activity in the laboratory during 2017 and although the hourly ratio is may, it is due to the same dismantling of the laboratory. The values of the indicator include laboratory waste caused by its dismantling and the collection of waste and discarded reagents derived therefrom. Graph 10. Total Hazardous waste.
  19. 19. A Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Action Plan is drafted for each project to identify and assess the specific environmental hazards and all the procedures and elements that must be taken into account to ensure correct environmental management; waste management preventive and corrective actions, good environmental practice data sheets, etc. The Action Plan is communicated to ADASA stakeholders involved on the project in order to guarantee its accomplishment. Due to ADASA’s activity, the generation of waste is variable and depends on project’s needs. 1 Waste Project site materials (batteries, cables,…) are not represented as a ratio of total value per employee (A/B) because this indicator has variable generation and low representativeness and is not significant according to the environmental analysis – Chapter 2.3.2.2 Commission Decision of 4 March (2013/131/UE).
