  • Our Green Book indicates electricity spend has risen by 12.7%, due to higher consumption of electricity and higher costs in some affiliates
  • Thanks to our carbon neutrality policy (see Carbon Neutrality) our absolute CO2 emissions have decreased by 8.1% against 2015 to 186,851 metric tons, with greenhouse gas intensity as a proportion of revenue reducing 13.3% (to 31.2 metric tons per CHF million) and greenhouse gas intensity as a proportion of headcount decreasing by 11.7% to 2.08 metric tons per full-time equivalent (FTE). This is against a backdrop of our FTE growing by 3.9%, and our revenue growing 6% in the same period.
