Footnotes
1 Some detail numbers may not sum exactly to total number due to rounding.
2 Net revenues excludes reimbursements (for example, travel and out-of-pocket expenses and third-party costs, such as the cost of hardware and software resales).
3 Summarized data is consistent with financial reporting.
4 For the People Equipped with Skills to Get a Job or Build a Business, we updated figures from fiscal 2011 through fiscal 2014 to include a small number of initiatives not previously reported.
Accenture Foundations refers to independent charitable organizations that bear the Accenture name.
"Accenture-sponsored 'Time & Skills' Programs" comprise Accenture Development Partnerships, pro bono consulting and paid volunteering projects.
Detailed methodology for carbon emissions and energy usage calculations is available in Accenture's response to CDP.
8 Since fiscal 2013, improved data on leased cars allows us to segregate some Scope 1 emissions from the Scope 3 car emissions they had been classified as previously. Starting in fiscal 2014, we classified Natural Gas usage as Scope 2 emissions from the Scope 1 emissions they had been classified as previously.
Fiscal 2015 CO2 emissions classified as "Office electricity" and "Scope 2" reflect a market-based carbon accounting approach. Adjusting our fiscal 2015 CO2 emissions to use a location-based approach would be 290,634 tons for Office electricity and 294,920 for Scope 2.
10 Electronic waste includes laptops and workstations with disposal method tracked in Accenture's global asset management system.
11 Fiscal 2015 total water consumption is derived from 55% measured data and estimating the remainder based on average per-workstation consumption from measured locations.
12 Does not include information from Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft that is majority-owned by Accenture.
13 All "Women Executives" values and 2015 "Women in Workforce" and "Women New Hires" values reflect our workforce as of December 31. "Women Executives" comprises our women managers, senior managers, managing directors, senior managing directors and members of our Global Management Committee.
