The value added statement indicates the degree to which we
contribute to the continuing economic development of the
company and our stakeholders using our financial resources.
Further information on the dialog with our stakeholders is
summarized in the chapter “In dialog with our stakeholders”
(p. 45 ff.).
We define value added as our cash-relevant business performance
in the past financial year less cash-relevant expenses.
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 24.1% (previous year restated: 22.0%).
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 all stakeholder
groups, the retained cash flow is available to the company
for future investments without the need to raise additional
debt (p. 72).

The provisions for pensions and similar obligations held by
EnBW AG to the amount of €5,800.4 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 paid by the subsidiaries concerned in each case. The increase in the provisions for pensions and similar obligations of €514.6 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 €3,844.1 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 €22,687.3 million are offset by long-term debt of €16,233.0 million.

We spent €70.6 million (previous year: €54.4 million) on research, development and innovation in the 2020 financial
year. The increase was primarily due to higher expenditure for the grids and the growth in innovation management. Sales in the area of innovation management increased to €13.4 million (previous year: €11.1 million). We received government research grants of €1.0 million (previous year: €0.9 million). There were 93 employees (previous year: 81) in the areas of research, development and innovation in 2020. 185 employees (previous year: 236 employees) were involved in research and development projects as part of their operational work. A further 248 employees (previous year: 130) were involved in innovation projects.

Using the EnBW 2025 strategy, we aim to transform our company into a sustainable and innovative infrastructure partner for our customers and other stakeholders

EnBW is planning to invest around €12 billion in total between 2021 and 2025. The main focus of this investment will be the expansion of the grids, especially the central SuedLink and ULTRANET projects of our grid subsidiary TransnetBW for the future energy supply in Germany, the expansion of renewable energies, such as the planned realization of the EnBW He Dreiht offshore wind farm, and the further development of smart infrastructure for customers, for example, in the areas of broadband,
telecommunications and electromobility. In accordance with the EnBW 2025 growth strategy, 80% of our overall investment will be accounted for by growth projects. We will use sustainability criteria as the benchmark for our future decisions and investments even more resolutely than before and align our growth accordingly.

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 and data protection. In 2020, they were carried out at those companies directly and closely integrated into the CMS. Such risks are also systematically analyzed and identified in the indirectly integrated companies and the ITOs.
The non-financial declaration describes, among other things, the fundamental opportunities and risks connected with the EnBW business model and the activities based upon it that could have a possible impact on one of the individual issues.
Material individual risks with a very high probability of a serious negative impact in relation to any of the following issues do not exist at EnBW.

It was still possible to hold in-person training courses up to March 2020. We continued to offer training courses in sensitive areas in an online format for the rest of the year. New employees at EnBW are obligated to complete an e-learning course on corruption prevention and data protection. All of the indirectly integrated companies held training courses
to increase awareness among employees. The companies used either in-person or online training courses.
EnBW holds a compliance day every year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event was held for the first time in virtual form on 7 October 2020. We were still able to offer the 167 participants
a varied program online including motivational talks and workshops. In line with the motto of “#eskommtaufDichan” (it’s up to YOU), we emphasized the role played by every individual
employee in compliance at the company and held lively discussions. The event was also covered via the company’s internal communication platforms, giving all employees the opportunity to participate in the discussions.

EnBW AG and the directly integrated companies have established reporting channels via which internal, and also external, whistleblowers can report suspected cases while remaining
anonymous. Alongside EnBW AG, the companies ED, PRE, SWD and TransnetBW have also established a whistleblower system. In the reporting year, there were three breaches at directly integrated companies, of which one was a material breach where allegations of corruption were confirmed. There was one compliance breach each at SWD and PRE in the reporting year. No

302-1 Energy consumption within the organization
Reference
"Energy consumption": IAR 2020, p.84
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. Due to the lower level of own generation overall, total final energy consumption fell by around 4.4% in comparison to the previous year from 2,929 GWh to 2,799 GWh. The proportion of renewable energies in final energy consumption increased from 53.2% in 2019 to 54.6% in 2020. This was primarily due to an increase in electricity generation from renewable energies with a corresponding increase in the proportion of renewable energies used for the company’s own consumption requirements and the operating consumption of the power plants.
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 9,905 kWh in 2019 to 5,885 kWh in 2020. This considerable decrease was primarily attributable to the much greater number of employees working from home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

EnBW Network Energy Efficiency and Climate Protection:
The expansion of renewable energies, the reduction of greenhouse gases and the most efficient possible use of energy are the mainstays 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.

Direct CO₂ emissions are determined mainly by the deployment of power plants. In particular, the decrease in electricity generation from coal in combination with a significant increase in electricity generation from renewable sources led to a corresponding reduction in direct CO₂ emissions from 10.8 to 9.6 million t CO₂eq.
Lower indirect CO2 emissions from grid losses led to a fall in Scope 2 CO₂ emissions from 0.9 to 0.8 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. Due to a change in the classification of business activities, there
was a shift between the Generation and Trading and Sales segments. The figures for the previous year have been restated accordingly. For this reason, and also as a result of the purchase of Gas-Union by VNG, gas sales and thus the Scope 3 emissions rose significantly in the 2020 financial year in comparison to the
previous year. Primarily as a result of the increased generation from renewable energy sources, CO₂ emissions avoided rose from 7.9 to 8.9 million t CO₂eq.

"Definition of the key performance indicators" (CO2 intensity): IAR 2020, p.39-40
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 in the coming years (p. 83
and 99 f.).

CO₂ intensity / climate protection: IAR 2020, p.83
The CO₂ intensity of our own electricity generation fell by 11.4% in comparison to the previous year to 372 g / kWh. We had forecast an increase of between 16% and 23% despite higher generation from renewable energies in comparison to 2019, especially due to the EnBW Hohe See and EnBW Albatros offshore wind farms. Electricity generation at our fossil fuel-fired power plants was significantly lower than expected due to market-driven
developments. The unforeseeable effects of the coronavirus pandemic also played a role.

As of 31 December 2020, the EnBW Group had 24,655 employees, which was 1,362 more than at the end of 2019. This increase was primarily due to taking on new employees in strategic growth
fields. The number of employees in the Renewable Energies segment thus increased due to the expanded activities in the areas of biogas and onshore wind power. In the Grids segment, the
increase in the number of employees was due to the importance of the regulated business. However, this increase was offset to some extent by restructuring within the Group. The
expansion of the broadband business, increased demand for energy and storage solutions and restructuring measures within the Group led to an increase in the number of employees in the Sales segment. Digitalization and transformation processes increased the number of employees in “Other,” although these effects were also offset to some extent by restructuring measures within the Group. The employee turnover ratio stood at 5.9% in 2020 and was thus 0.4 percentage points lower than the figure in the previous year.

of modern leadership in depth in 36 digital workshops. In the “Next Level Leadership” format, around 1,200 EnBW employees and managers also took part in virtual training courses to promote
their personal development in 2020. The main focus was the theme of resilience in order to support employees with the huge changes to their working conditions as a result of the coronaviruspandemic. A qualification program has also been createdthat is specifically designed to provide support to employeeswho are taking on new, agile leadership roles.

The talent development program “SP4RK for Pioneers,” which was launched in 2019, combines the development of talent with the development of innovative business models. In the first phase of the program, talent from across the entire company worked for several months in cross-functional teams on projects with a start-up character in order to identify strategically
relevant business models. Furthermore, we have developed the digital learning and development platform “LernWerk” (Learning Factory) that allows EnBW employees to independently
shape their own development. The first version of the platform was tested at the beginning of 2021, and it will be gradually rolled out.

406-1 Incidents of discrimination and corrective actions taken
Reference
There were no cases of discrimination in the reporting period. All investments are made in Europe and therefore in OECD countries. In addition, EnBW has initial business activities in Taiwan and the USA.

Raw materials are procured from non-OECD countries, and in these cases all relevant human rights aspects are addressed. In addition, we expect our suppliers to ensure safe working conditions for their own employees, for the temporary and contract workers employed by them, and for the subcontractors working for them; these are checked via prequalification questions.

Among other things, the UN Global Compact principles must be complied with, including the ILO core labor standards. These include:
-the prohibition of child labor,
-the prohibition of slavery, forced labor and human trafficking,
-the prohibition of direct or indirect discrimination in the workplace,
-freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.
