We offer a wide variety of sustainability services, making our overall contribution to sustainability challenging to quantify. We have conducted some work on this; in 2013 we carried out a study to estimate the carbon emission reductions associated with our provision of ISO 14064: GHG accounting and verification services to our customers, and in 2014, we conducted a preliminary study into our role in helping our customers to reduce their carbon intensity. We began by estimating the CO2 emissions of our customers in our Industrial and Agriculture business lines and, based on current studies, considered how much our customers had reduced their emissions. We then calculated the extent to which SGS, through our services, had contributed to this reduction in CO2. The study estimated that our customers emit annually 900 million tonnes CO2. We have estimated that through our services, we can help our customers reduce their CO2 emissions by 1.5%.
