Fuels and energy
The Budimex Group’s demand for fuel and energy results primarily from:
- production of bituminous mixtures,
- operation of construction machinery, transport of materials, raw materials,
- the use of official vehicles.
The current energy consumption of works, and thus the emission factor, is closely related to the stage of implementation of a given investment and results, among other things, from the level of demand for transport, machine operation and bituminous mass production. Relatively long cycle of execution of contracts, because it lasts over a year, makes the comparison of energy demand and energy intensity on an annual basis not very reliable. Positive or negative changes in results may result from the current status of the contract portfolio, and not from changes in the operating model. Such changes occur, however, as the Budimex Group undertakes operational activities aimed at permanent reduction of energy consumption and emissions (e.g. through successive replacement of equipment) and educational activities addressed to employees, which translate into lower consumption of electricity and fuels.
|Light fuel oil||MWh||4,899.92||6,759.92||38%|
|Mains natural gas||MWh||2,714.07||1,774.53||-34.6%|
|Electricity from renewable sources||MWh||4,418.15||7,069.59||60%|
Since 2019, Budimex Group has been transforming its fleet in line with the principles of green electromobility. The percentage of electric and hybrid vehicles is successively increased. Extensive activities in this respect constitute one of the important areas of strategic action.
