Only about 1% of the employees have a fixed-term contract, so no separate subdivision into permanent / fixed-term employment relationships is made in this list. Excluded from this are interns, diploma/master’s students etc. as well as employees in their probationary period (first 6 months of service). Number of temporary workers (incl. foundation apprentices) as of Dec. 31, 2021: 486, which is 9.3% of the total workforce.

1) Presentation excludes temporary workers, external contractors and DealerCenter Digital GmbH. Managers include Board members (excl. members of the Executive Board of PIERER Mobility AG), general managers, division managers, subdivision managers, heads of department and team leaders. Anti-corruption information and anti-corruption training activities for employees have only been systematically recorded at Group level since 2020 and have been continuously expanded. In 2019, training courses were only held at KTM AG. Since September 1, 2021, the Code of Conduct has been sent to the contractual partners (suppliers/subcontractors) as an annex to the non-disclosure agreement as standard when new contractual relationships are concluded by the KTM AG Group and the PIERER E-Bikes Group.

2) In 2020, the training of the members of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board took place during the Supervisory Board meeting of KTM AG. Accordingly, all members of the Executive Board as well as one member of the Supervisory Board of PIERER Mobility AG received training.

For the calculation of CO2 equivalents for Scope 1-2, the conversion factors of the Austria Federal Environment Agency and the UK Department for Environment, Food & Regulatory Affairs (DEFRA) for 2016, 2019, 2020 & 2021 were used.
The base year of the calculation is 2018, the calculation of CO2 equivalents for Scope 1-3 was published for the first time in the Sustainability Report 2019.
In principle, the data of the main company and production sites in Austria are included in the evaluation: In addition to PIERER Mobility AG, this comprises KTM AG, Pierer Innovation GmbH, KTM Technologies GmbH and KTM Sportcar GmbH.

1) Evaluation excluding Pierer Innovation GmbH, Avocodo GmbH, PIERER E-Bikes GmbH, DC Digital GmbH.

2) In 2019, calculation with “location-based” emissions. Emissions from district heating at the KTM Sportcar GmbH site. Since 2020, emissions have also been calculated using a “market based” method. However, for better traceability, the calculation of the emission shares in % in the reporting year was waived here and “location based” was used for the CO2 emissions per vehicle sold (the difference between “market and location based” is very small and therefore negligible). In the case of KTM Sportcar GmbH, the emission factor from the Federal Environment Agency was used for the calculation for district heating, because no information on the emission data is available from the supplier. The low share of indirect greenhouse gas emissions is due to the supply mix of the 2021 supply year. The majority of the kWh of electricity purchased comes from hydropower. The district heating and electricity consumption of KTM Sportcar GmbH in 2019 and 2020 was adjusted retroactively.

3) Evaluation including Pierer Innovation GmbH.

4) Calculation based on EU homologation data on fuel consumption according to WMTC and taking into account average annual mileage and average service life. The Enduro Competition models are homologated in a mechanically and electronically throttled condition. However, the motorcycles are often used in an unthrottled condition at amateur and professional racing events, at the customer’s own risk. This results in significantly higher consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The KTM models sold directly by Bajaj Auto are also included in the calculation.

5) Calculated from the total carbon footprint (market based Scope 1+2 and Scope 1-3) divided by the number of vehicles sold (PTW and X-BOW).

6) Calculated from electricity, district heating and natural gas consumption divided by the total number of vehicles sold (PTW and X-BOW). In 2021 and 2020, “market based” was used to calculate electricity and district heating purchases; in 2019, “location based” was used (difference is very small and therefore negligible).

Motorcycles sold in the B2C (retail) business were used for the calculation of the usage phase, as well as X-Bow and, from 2021, e-bicycles in the B2B (wholesale) business: Number of vehicles used for the calculation 324,476 (previous year: 229,536 excl. e-bicycles). Motorcycle models that are not eligible for registration (e.g. motocross, cross country, sport minicycles) were not considered due to an insufficient database (missing consumption and mileage data). A total of 332,881 motorcycles and 76,916 e-bicycles were sold in 2021 (previous year: 270,407 motorcycles, 56,064 e-bicycles).

The values included in the evaluation are based on EU homologation data for the respective models. In 2021, there were several homologation amendments to the MY21 Street and MY22 Enduro models due to changes in catalytic converter compositions. This had a subsequent impact on fleet emissions and consumption in the past two reporting years.

According to the Kyoto Protocol, there are seven main greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change: Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3). CO2-e is the universal unit of measurement used to indicate the global warming potential (GWP) of each of the seven greenhouse gases, expressed as the GWP of one unit of carbon dioxide. It is used to assess the release (or avoidance of release) of various greenhouse gases on a common basis.

For reasons of materiality, the table only contains values from the KTM Group’s manufacturing sites in Mattighofen and Munderfing.

Description of waste types / metals: including various scrap metals, cable scrap, mixed chips, prototypes. Aluminum: including castings, smelting, chips; waste for recycling: including waste wood (untreated, material), waste wood pallets, waste-paper, various cardboard boxes; hazardous waste: waste oil, drilling emulsion, various solvents, cleaners, railroad sleepers; other waste: including plasterboard, used tires, industrial waste.

1) Packaging materials disposed of exclusively include waste generated at KTM AG (Mattighofen and Munderfing sites) for recycling excluding green waste and waste glass (waste paper, cardboard packaging, waste wood, waste wood pallets, polypropylene pallets, mixed plastics, sorted polystyrene, plastic packaging/EPS-TPU). The share of packaging materials in the metal waste could not be evaluated separately in the reporting year, as these are disposed of with all other metal waste generated by KTM AG at the Mattighofen and Munderfing sites. However, this quantity does not represent a significant proportion.

The Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) has been recorded since the 2021 reporting year. The LTIFR describes the number of accidents involving lost time of at least one day per 1 million hours worked. Underlying formula: LTIFR=accidents/hours worked*1,000,000.

1) The method of calculation was adjusted in 2019.  Values from 2019 include all documented occupational accidents (excluding commuting accidents). Data for employees of external companies are available. Injury rate based on injuries per 1 million hours worked. In accordance with GRI standards, the injury rate is calculated on the basis of productive working hours: Number of hours worked in 2021: 5,564,141 (2020: 4,368,239), productive hours incl. temporary workers 6,131,249. From 2020, work-related injuries of temporary workers are shown separately. For 2020, no productive hours of KTM Technologies GmbH as well as Pierer E-Bikes GmbH could be evaluated from the time recording; evaluation has been possible since 2021 (excl. Dealer Center Digital GmbH).

In the 2021 financial year, as in 2019, there was no work-related fatality at KTM AG. There was one work-related fatality in 2020.

2) Training and development hours in Australia in 2020: 120 h. No training took place here in 2021 due to the lockdowns imposed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Training and development hours for DealerCenter Digital GmbH in 2021: 7 h. Training and development hours in other areas are not currently available.
