Climate and energy performance (305-1, 305-2, 305-3, 305-4)
We achieved a 5% reduction in global GHG emissions (Scope 3) per $billion revenue between 2017 and 2018
We achieved a 26% reduction in global GHG emissions (Scope 1 & 2) per $billion revenue between 2017 and 2018
We support global efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change and strive to maintain the lowest possible levels of energy consumption and resulting greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in our offices and activities. We generate direct emissions (Scope 1) through stationary and mobile fuel combustion and indirect emissions (Scope 2) through purchased electricity at our office facilities. In the past four years, while our global footprint has grown as we have expanded our business internationally, we have significantly improved our energy and emissions efficiency through ongoing improvements in energy controls, installation of energy-efficient appliances, and employee education and behavioral change.
Additionally, we generate GHG emissions through employee business travel and certain distribution losses in fuel- and energy-related activities (Scope 3). Continued efforts to reduce business travel through use of virtual meeting platforms and deployment of local teams in our international markets yielded further improvements in our Scope 3 emissions performance.
