Data collection process

Data on energy consumption, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, waste, paper, and water consumption are consolidated in a global database that systematically analyses data covering the past eight years. Tools in the database enable analysis of environmental initiatives and performance, for example highlighting how renewable electricity has reduced carbon emissions. The system monitors and estimates key indicators based on present data and trends, so that annual carbon emissions can be forecast and offsets purchased at the appropriate level to meet our neutrality targets. Data covers all locations, presently with more than 70% of our energy use from actual metered or invoiced data. On the basis of these data, consumption is extrapolated for non-reporting sites to get our total energy consumption and GHG emissions. These data are quantified and reported in line with the international GHG standard ISO 14064. Waste, paper, and water data are also captured in this database. The data for waste comes from locations with ISO 14001 certification in Germany, London, and New York. The figures for consumption of copier paper are collected in eleven countries including Germany, Singapore, the UK, and the US, and cover 71% of employees. The water consumption data is extrapolated based on floor area and covers 66% of floor area across the globe. The GHG data collection, internal reporting processes, and Verified Emission Reduction (VER) purchases and retirement have been reviewed by ERM Certification and Verification Services (ERM CVS).
