Supporting Data

ENVIRONMENT

Data presented here support the Environment section of this report. Data from ERM’s acquisition of JSC is excluded.

GHG emissions intensity

GHG emissions intensity FY15 - FY17 (tCO2e/FTE)

 

  • Notes:
    Total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions normalized by average full-time equivalent (FTE) employees.

    FY16 GHG emissions data (used to calculate emissions intensity) reported in the FY16 Sustainability Report was overstated by 5.1% (1,110 tCO2e). This was due to data errors in the calculation methods and incorrect data entries in the North America business. FY16 data presented in this report has been restated to correct for these errors.

Data has been calculated using a market-based approach, unless otherwise stated. For further information on market-based methods, please refer to http://www.ghgprotocol.org.


The FY16 data for total GHG emissions reported in the FY16 Sustainability Report was overstated by 5.1% (1,110 tCO2e).This was due to data errors in the calculation methods and incorrect data entries in the North America business. FY16 data presented in this report has been restated to correct for these errors.

Notes
Scope 1 includes direct emissions from operations we own or control. 

Scope 1 is expressed as CO2e and includes all Kyoto gases and refrigerants.

Scope 1 emissions from Global Businesses and Group are included in the data for the ERM region in which employees home offices are located. 

FY16 Scope 1 GHG emissions data reported in the FY16 Sustainability Report was overstated by 0.4% (4 tCO2e). This was due to errors in the calculation methods and incorrect data entries in the North America business. FY16 data presented in this report has been restated to correct for these errors.

Notes
Scope 2 includes indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, heating, cooling and steam that we consume or use. 

Scope 2 is expressed as CO2e and includes all Kyoto gases. 

Scope 2 emissions from Specialty Global Businesses and Group are included in the data for the ERM region in which employees home offices are located. However from FY16, due to an office opening, there are Scope 1 emissions for Specialty Global Businesses. 

For further information on Scope 2 location and market-based methods, please refer to http://www.ghgprotocol.org. 

FY16 Scope 2 data reported in the FY16 Sustainability Report was overstated by 3.3% (317 tCO2e). This was due to data entry errors in the North America business. FY16 data presented in this report has been restated to correct for these errors.

Notes
Scope 3 includes other indirect emissions that occur outside ERM (e.g., business travel).

Scope 3 is expressed as CO2e and includes all Kyoto gases and refrigerants.

FY16 Scope 3 GHG data reported in the FY16 Sustainability Report was overstated by 6.8% (789 tCO2e). This was due to data calculation errors in the North America business. FY16 data presented in this report has been restated to correct for these errors.

Employees from Global Businesses and Group are included in the data for the ERM region in which their home offices are located.

The portion of shared resources for which ERM is responsible in multiple-occupant buildings, where this amount is not already reported or included in office billings.

RECs are Renewable Energy Certificates, i.e., the tradable part of generated electricity from renewable resources representing attributes such as GHG emissions. 

FY16 office energy use data reported in the FY16 Sustainability Report was overstated by 5.0% (1113 MWh). This was due to data entry errors in the North America business. FY16 data presented in this report has been restated to correct for these errors.
