6 Since fiscal 2013, improved data on leased cars allows us to segregate some Scope 1 emissions from the Scope 3 car emissions where they had been classified previously.

7 CO2 emissions related to Scope 2 Office Electricity reflect a market-based accounting approach as defined by the updated GHG Protocol Scope 2 guidance. In line with the guidance, fiscal 2016 office electricity market-based emissions factor renewable electricity impacts as well as 3,829 tons of residual non-renewable emissions in Europe. Also in line with the guidance, we report CO2 emissions using a location-based approach which for fiscal 2016 would be 309,631 tons for Office electricity and 313,141 tons for Scope 2 (fiscal 2015 values are 290,634 tons and 294,920 respectively).
