The conversion factors of the Austrian Federal Environment Agency and the UK Department for Environment, Food & Regulatory Affairs (DEFRA) 2018 & 2019 were used to calculate the CO2 equivalents.
1) Evaluation excl. KTM Innovation GmbH, Avocodo GmbH and Pexco GmbH.
2) Site KTM Sportcar GmbH.
3) Greenhouse emissions are calculated on the basis of homologated laboratory values data. The motorcycles are homologated in a mechanically and electronically throttled condition. However, the motorcycles are often used in unthrottled condition at amateur and professional racing events, at the customer’s own risk. This results in significantly higher consumption and greenhouse emissions. Vehicles sold in the B2C (retail) business and X-Bow were used to calculate the useful life. Number of vehicles used in the calculation 143,165 (previous year: 134,164). Motorcycle models not eligible for registration (e.g. motocross, cross country, sport minicycles) were not considered due to an insufficient database (missing consumption and mileage data). Furthermore, KTM models sold directly by Baja Auto Ltd. were not considered either. In 2019 a total of 280,099 vehicles were sold (previous year: 261,454) (incl. direct sales by Baja Auto Ltd.).

1)Changed definition of managers, therefore not comparable with previous year. All figures rounded. Presentation excl. members of the Executive Board Pierer Mobility AG, incl. temporary employees. In 2019 incl. employees of Avocodo GmbH and Pexco GmbH. Managers include board members (excl. board members of Pierer Mobility AG), general managers, division managers, subdivision managers, heads of department and team leaders. 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, diplomats/master’s degree holders, etc., and employees in probationary period (first 6 months of service). Number of temporary employees as of 31.12.2019: 178, i.e. 4.1% of the total workforce.

1) In 2019 the method of calculation was adjusted. Values for 2018 include notifiable occupational accidents (including commuting accidents), while values from 2019 onwards include all documented occupational accidents (excluding commuting accidents). Accident figures for employees of external companies are not available. Injury rate based on injuries per 1 million working hours. In accordance with GRI standards, the injury rate is calculated on the basis of productive working hours: Number of hours worked in 2019: 5.209.176 (previous years: 5.074.350)

2)Changed definition of managers, therefore not comparable with previous year. Managers include board members, general managers, division members and subdivision managers. Since 2019 department managers and team leaders are also included. Not included in the evaluation are the members of the Executive Board of KTM AG.
Not included in the evaluation are KTM Technologies GmbH, Avocodo GmbH and Pexco GmbH.
In the reporting year, KTM Technologies GmbH’s further training hours also included the hours spent at trade fairs and congresses. From 2020 onwards, further training hours will be collected separately and a breakdown by gender, employee and manager will be sought.
