The value added statement indicates the degree to which we contribute to the continuing economic development of the company and our stakeholders using our fnancial resources. Further information on the dialog with our stakeholders is summarized in the chapter “In dialog with our stakeholders". We define value added as our cash-relevant business performance in the past financial year less cash-relevant expenses (suppliers and service providers). The value added is derived from the cash flow statement and corrected based on the use of funds. In the reporting year, we generated value added of 16.8% (previous year restated: 24.2%). This decrease was mainly attributable to the change in the cash-relevant business performance and in cash-relevant expenses. As well as being used in the form of wages, salaries and pension payments for active and former employees, a further share is dedicated to payments to the state in the form of income taxes and electricity and energy taxes. After consideration of other stakeholder groups, the retained cash flow is available to the company for future investments without the need to raise additional debt (p. 87).

The provisions for pensions and similar obligations held by EnBW AG to the amount of €6,348.6 million combine obligations from the company pension scheme and other company agreements made by major subsidiaries and EnBW AG. The resulting annual expenses for retirement benefits are reimbursed by the subsidiaries concerned in each case. The increase in the provisions for pensions and similar obligations of €548.2 million was mainly due to the effect of the further decrease in the discount rate as in the previous year. In addition, provisions relating to nuclear power of €3,630.7 million are disclosed, which are formed to fulfill public law obligations and requirements in the operating licenses.

The aim is to cover the non-current pension and nuclear provisions with appropriate financial assets within an economically feasible time period. Overall, financial assets of €23,802.6 million are offset by long-term debt of €17,174.5 million.

"Research and development: Expenditure and personnel": IAR 2021, p. 60

In the 2021 financial year, we spent €38.6 million (previous year: €70.6 million) on research and development. EnBW innovation management was no longer included in the figures in 2021 because the gradual growth in revenues and the funds deployed for this purpose are distorting the presentation of expenditure on research and development. Adjusted for this change, expenditure on research and development increased in 2021 by 15.2% (previous year restated: €33.5 million). As in the previous year, we received government research grants of €1.0 million.

Our EnBW 2025 strategy is increasingly placing the company’s focus onto the infrastructure aspects of existing energy-related business fields and utilizing our core expertise to exploit new growth opportunities above and beyond the energy sector. Our core expertise – what we do well and do better than many others – lies in the safe and reliable construction, operation and management of critical infrastructure in the energy sector, such as the generation of energy or the distribution of energy by our grid subsidiaries. This can also be transferred to other business fields related to infrastructure. One example of this type of business field is our broadband business in which we have already made significant progress. We are also involved in the expansion of urban infrastructure. As we understand it, urban infrastructure concerns, for example, the smart networking of the energy and heating supplies, telecommunications and mobility. Another new business field is the development of passive mobile phone infrastructure (such as radio towers), whereby we are actively working to improve mobile phone coverage in Baden-Württemberg with, for example, 5G technology.

- The annual compliance risk assessments at EnBW investigate the corruption, antitrust, fraud and data protection risks and form the basis for all work relating to compliance. In 2021, they were carried out using a risk-based selection process at those companies directly integrated into the CMS.
- The observance of relevant legal regulations and internal company rules forms the basis of our business activities. Managing compliance risks at EnBW (with a main focus on corruption, antitrust and data protection risks) is the task of the compliance management system, which comprises regular risk assessments of this type. Risks related to fighting corruption and bribery are addressed on p. 49 ff. in a cross-segment manner.

The reporting year was still characterized by the coronavirus pandemic, which meant that most employees were working from home. The preventative activities related to compliance were largely held in online formats. In 2021, we held training in sensitive areas in accordance with our plans for the year. Training courses for employees in purchasing were the main focus across the Group. New employees at EnBW are obligated to complete an e-learning course on corruption prevention. All of the indirectly integrated companies held training courses to increase awareness among employees. The companies used either the available in-person or online training courses. The number of participants fell in comparison to the previous year by 13.9%.

Reference
"Energy consumption": IAR 2021, p. 101

- Total final energy consumption includes the consumption of final energy for our business activities. It does not include conversion losses during energy generation or grid losses. Total final energy consumption is mostly influenced by pump energy as well as the company’s own consumption requirements and the operating consumption of the power plants. As a result of the lower use of pump energy and the reduction in the company’s own consumption at the thermal power plants, total final energy consumption fell by around 2.1% in comparison to the previous year from 2,799GWh to 2,741GWh.
- The proportion of renewable energies in final energy consumption increased from 54.6% in 2020 to 60.5% in 2021. This was primarily due to the increase in pump energy at the pumped storage power plants operated by the subsidiary Vorarlberger Illwerke, which uses electricity generated by renewable sources for this purpose.
- The energy consumption of our buildings covers the energy required for heating rooms, providing hot water and electricity. The energy consumption of buildings per employee decreased from 5,859 kWh in 2020 to 4,854 kWh in 2021, which was mainly attributable to the fact that employees were continuing to work from home.

Further information on EnBW Network Energy Efficiency and Climate Protection (www.enbw.com/contracting/geschaeftskunden/produkte/netzwerke):

The expansion of renewable energies, the reduction of greenhouse gases and the most efficient possible use of energy are the main pillars of the energy transition. Back in 2014, the German government reached an agreement with associations and organizations from industry, the skilled trades, commerce and trade to contribute to increasing energy efficiency. The energy efficiency networks created under this associations' agreement have proven to be a successful approach to saving energy and thus emissions. In 2020, the stakeholders extended this agreement by five years and placed a stronger focus on the aspect of climate protection - which is also reflected in the name: The "new" Energy Efficiency and Climate Protection Networks initiative. By the end of 2025, a further 300 to 350 networks are to be created and continue to work on the goals of saving energy, reducing CO₂ emissions and sustainably lowering energy costs.

EnBW has been writing a success story here as a pioneer with its know-how and energy management expertise for 15 years now with the EnBW energy efficiency and climate protection networks, which we offer as a service to industrial customers. Around 90 companies from all over Germany are taking part in EnBW's seven current networks, some of which have been running for many years.

"Carbon footprint of EnBW": IAR 2021, p. 100-101

Direct CO₂ emissions are determined mainly by the deployment of power plants. In 2021, lower wind yields and market-driven developments, especially in the gas sector, primarily led to higher electricity generation at our fossil fuel-fired power plants and thus to an increase in direct CO₂ emissions from 9.5 million t CO₂eq in 2020 to 16.3 million t CO₂eq in 2021. Netze BW acquired certificates of origin for sufficient quantities of green electricity in 2021 to cover its procurement of electricity to compensate for grid losses and thus permanently withdrew these certificates from the market. As a result, the Scope 2 emissions of Netze BW related to the procurement of electricity to compensate for grid losses fell to zero. This resulted in a fall in the Scope 2 CO₂ emissions at EnBW from 0.77 million t CO₂eq to 0.44 million t CO₂eq. Scope 3 CO₂ emissions are mainly influenced by the gas consumption of our customers and thus by gas sales in the B2C and B2B sectors. The Scope 3 emissions increased in the 2021 financial year in comparison to the previous year. This was primarily due to higher gas sales compared to 2020. Due to updated avoidance factors from the German Environment Agency and an increase in biogas activities, CO₂ emissions avoided rose from 8.9 million t CO₂eq to 9.8 million t CO₂eq.

305-4 GHG emissions intensity
Reference
"Definition of the key performance indicators" (CO₂ intensity): IAR 2021, p. 45-47

The emissions of CO₂ from own generation of electricity for the Group, as well as the volume of electricity generated by the Group without the contribution made by the nuclear power plants, form the basis for the calculation of the key performance indicator CO₂ intensity. This performance indicator is calculated as the ratio between the emissions and the generated volume of electricity and thus specifically describes the amount of CO₂ released per kilowatt hour. By discounting the electricity generated by nuclear power plants, the performance indicator will not be influenced by the phasing out of nuclear energy (p. 99 and 127 f.).

"CO2 intensity / climate protection": IAR 2021, p. 99

The CO₂ intensity of our own electricity generation increased in comparison to the previous year to 478g/kWh. With respect to our target of reducing the CO₂ intensity of our own electricity generation, 2020 was an exceptional year that was subject to extraordinary effects. Electricity generation at our fossil fuel-fired power plants was thus significantly lower than expected due to market-driven developments. In the Integrated Annual Report 2020, we thus forecast a CO₂ intensity for 2021 at the same level as in 2020 in the best-case scenario, and an increase of 15% in the worst-case scenario. In the 2021 financial year, economic activities recovered as we had previously forecast and this resulted in a catch-up effect with high demand for energy and raw materials. Furthermore, the 2021 financial year was characterized by below-average wind conditions and, in particular, market driven developments, especially in the gas sector. Significantly higher volumes of electricity were generated using fossil fuel-fired power plants as a result, which is why the forecasted range for CO₂ intensity in 2021 in comparison to the exceptional year 2020 was exceeded. Nevertheless, CO₂ intensity in 2021 was 12.7% lower than in 2018 and thus still at the lower end of our target corridor for reducing our CO₂ intensity by 2025 by between -15% and -30% in comparison to the reference year of 2018.

As of 31 December 2021, the EnBW Group had 26,064 employees, which was 1,409 more than at the end of 2020. This increase was primarily due to taking on new employees in strategic growth fields.
The increase in the number of employees in the Smart Infrastructure for Customers segment was primarily due to the first-time consolidation of investments, as well as the recruitment of additional personnel due to the expansion of broadband and increased demand for energy and storage solutions. In the System Critical Infrastructure segment, the increase in the number of employees was due to the importance of the regulated business and also the first-time consolidation of an
investment. The digitalization and transformation processes as well as restructuring within the Group increased the number of employees in Other. The employee turnover ratio stood at 6.2% in 2021 and was thus 0.3 percentage points higher than the figure in the previous year.

The growth of our company is closely linked to the personal development of every individual and the collective development of the management team. Under the name “EnBW Guides,” we have developed a new competency model in a cross-functional team comprising members of the works council, representatives from the business areas and HR personnel. This new competency model defines the eight overarching skills that will be required in the future. The eight key skills and what they stand for are presented in a series of videos.
Furthermore, we have developed the digital learning and development platform “LernWerk” (Learning Factory) that helps our employees to independently shape their own development. A prototype of the platform was tested at the end of the year, initially by around 80 internal specialists and subject matter experts. We will start to rollout “LernWerk” to the employees in the functional units at EnBW AG in the first quarter of 2022.

- Our purchasing department views itself as a partner for generating added value within the Group. Its goal is to ensure the supply of materials and services at the best possible quality/cost ratio and thus strengthen the competitiveness of the company. We place great emphasis on the efficient design of our procurement processes for achieving cost-effective purchasing results, as well as on sustainable procurement taking into account the requirements of national laws, EU law and the Group’s internal guidelines. In order to manage the procurement processes, a system using various different performance indicators is used. It continually delivers a realistic picture of the current situation in purchasing and enables a comparison of the target and actual situation, as well as the prompt implementation of control measures.

- A large number of suppliers and service providers play an important role in our efforts to achieve a leading position on the energy market. Supplier management promotes successful cooperation with our suppliers because it makes the performance of the suppliers transparent and also makes continuous optimization in partnership possible. The careful selection of our business partners is a part of our risk management system and supports the observance of legal regulations and internally defined quality standards. Especially with regard to the selective internationalization of the business, central purchasing at EnBW AG is also developing an integrated supply chain management system in close cooperation with the business and functional units.
Sustainable procurement begins with the careful selection of business partners. Central purchasing at EnBW AG uses a standardized prequalification process for this purpose. Suppliers are required to provide a self-assessment via our supplier portal on whether they have sustainable measures in place in the areas of environmental management, occupational health and safety, the respect for
human rights, the fight against corruption, data protection and quality management. This self-assessment was completed by around 85% of our suppliers by the end of 2021 (measured by procurement volume).

- Respecting human rights and protecting the environment are key pillars of our corporate culture. In cooperation with our business partners, we aim to improve the situation with respect to sustainability across the entire supply chain. We are thus planning to make our procurement process even more sustainable in the future – especially with consideration to social and ecological aspects. As part of a sustainable procurement project, which is one of the measures in the EnBW sustainability program (p. 41), a Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC) was developed in 2020. It was introduced in 2021 as a shared set of values and an important criterion for the selection and development of our suppliers..

We follow political initiatives and legislative processes, report back to the Group and contribute the Group's position to the political debate. We actively participate in the political decision-making process and provide impetus on all key issues of the energy transition (for example, promotion of renewables, market design and grids). We seek dialog with parliament, government, interest groups and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and advise on legal and economic framework conditions. This is done through position papers, our own specialist events, background discussions and the participation of our stakeholders in events. The aim is to promote professional exchange, show willingness to talk and maintain dialog.
