Question

Has the brand (owner) disclosed the annual absolute climate footprint of its 'own operations', and has it accomplished an overall absolute climate footprint reduction compared to the result of the previous reporting year?

NL: Heeft het merk (bedrijf) de jaarlijkse absolute ‘klimaatvoetafdruk' van zijn eigen operaties gepubliceerd en is het bedrijf erin geslaagd deze algehele klimaatvoetafdruk te verminderen ten opzichte van het voorafgaande verslagjaar?

Reference

This question relates to Disclosure 305-1, 305-2, and 305-5 of the Global Reporting Initiative. A climate footprint is 'the total set of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by an organization, event, product or person.' For this question, the climate footprint should include all greenhouse emissions (which are typically reported in terms of CO2 equivalent).

Please refer to Climate Protection Question 1 for a definition of what is included in the Scopes 1 and 2/'Own Operations' climate footprint.

Ranking Guidelines

A ‘Yes’ is applicable when either:

  • Companies publish a climate footprint of no more than two years old (e.g., data of emissions in 2016 qualify up to and including 2018) as well as the results from the previous reporting year that give a clear breakdown of the inputs that contribute to this footprint (e.g. Scopes 1 and 2)
  • Or, companies indicate that they have reported their climate footprint on a publicly available website (e.g., the Carbon Disclosure Project), and the ranker has independently verified that it meets our criteria (see hints/reminders in section below).

AND:

  • Based on this information, the company has achieved an absolute reduction in its climate footprint compared to the previous reporting year, or reports that its operations are climate neutral.


A ‘No’ is applicable when:

  • The brand (company) has clearly not published the absolute climate footprint for its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The brand (company) has not reduced its climate footprint for its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions compared to the previous year.


A ‘?’ is applicable when:

  • Companies publish their climate footprint only relative to e.g. turnover, number of products sold, number of employees etc. The climate footprint should always be presented in absolute terms.
  • The published climate footprint is incomplete: e.g. some part of the company operations for Scopes 1 and 2 are excluded.
  • The published climate footprint does not indicate which scopes are included.
  • The published climate footprint is more than two years old, or no climate footprint for the previous reporting year is available.


Answering Guidelines

Answer Yes:

  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] publishes the climate footprint of its own operations for [previous reporting year] and [current reporting year], and has reduced its absolute climate footprint from [Amount] tons of CO2e to [Amount] tons of CO2e.


Answer No:

  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] does not publish the climate footprint of own operations, from [current reporting year] to [previous reporting year].
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] published the climate footprint of own operations, from [current reporting year] to [previous reporting year]; however, the [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] reports [an increase, no reduction] in its absolute climate footprint.
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] increased its own operations climate footprint from [..Amount] tons of CO2 in [..YR] to [..Amount] tons of CO2 in [..YR], which represents an increase of around [..%].
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] publicly reports its own operations climate footprint on the CDP website. In [..YR], it had a total footprint of [..] metric tons of CO2eq/yr, compared to [..] metric tons of CO2eq/yr in [..YR]. This represents an increase of around [..]%.


Answer ?:

  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of] publishes the climate footprint of own operations, from [year] to [previous year], see [reference including page number], but only relative to [sales / employees / items sold] and not the absolute figures.
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of brand] publishes the climate footprint of its own operations from [year] to [previous year], see [reference including page number]. However, the climate footprint is clearly incomplete, missing [operations in country / activities/reference to which scopes are included].
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of] publishes the climate footprint of its own operations, but [the reported footprint is more than two years old / it is not clear whether a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions has been achieved because no footprint for the previous reporting year has been provided].
  • [Brand] claims it has reduced its climate footprint by [..] from [..YR] to [..YR]. However, [Brand] does not publicly provide the details of this climate footprint (or where to find it).
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of] does not publish the annual climate footprint of last years. It is therefore not clear if the implemented measures actually helped to reduce the total annual greenhouse gas emissions.
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of] does not publish an up to date (not older than 2 years) annual climate footprint of last years. It is therefore not clear if the total annual greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced.
  • [Brand / Company, brand owner of] publicly reports its own operations climate footprint. In [..YR], it had a total footprint of [..] metric tons of CO2eq/yr. However, a climate footprint of previous years is not made public.
  • Neither [Brand / Company, brand owner of] nor [...] (brand owner) communicate a carbon footprint policy.
