2 Excluding the rights to certificates of energy efficiency (“white certificates”)

3 As of 3 January 2018, following the implementation of MiFID 2, bonds of Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK) are considered Treasury bonds and EIB bonds are considered municipal bonds. As a result, the value of non-Treasury bond issues presented in previous communications are not directly comparable to the figures published in this report.

4 Certificates of origin of energy efficiency (“white certificates”) are issued, traded, and cleared in different metric units than other certificates on TGE (toe – tonne of oil equivalent; amount of energy equivalent to one metric tonne of crude oil with a calorific value of 10,000 kcal/kg).

5 ktoe = 1,000 toe, Mtoe = 1,000,000 toe
