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 Values reflect our workforce as of December 31 of that year and do not include information from Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft that is majority-owned by Accenture.
4 Values for “Women in Workforce” and “Women New Hires” prior to 2015 reflect our workforce as of August 31.
5 “Women Executives” comprises our women managers, senior managers, managing directors, senior managing directors and members of our Global Management Committee.
6 “Women Managing Directors” comprises our women managing directors, senior managing directors and members of our Global Management Committee.
7 "Accenture Foundations" refers to independent charitable organizations that bear the Accenture name.
8 “Accenture-sponsored ‘Time & Skills’ Programs” comprise Accenture Development Partnerships, pro bono consulting and paid volunteering projects.
9 Detailed methodology for carbon emissions and energy usage calculations is available in Accenture’s CDP Climate Change response; 100% of Accenture’s fiscal 2017 Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, as well as a small subset of Scope 3 emissions received a positive statement for a limited assurance review by an independent third party.
10 CO2 emissions related to Scope 2 Office Electricity reflect a market-based accounting approach as defined by the GHG Protocol Scope 2 guidance. In line with the guidance, market-based emissions for Office Electricity in fiscal 2017 include renewable Electricity impacts as well as 3,365 tons of residual nonrenewable emissions in Europe. Also in line with the guidance, we report CO2 emissions using a location-based approach which for fiscal 2017 would be 300,233 tons for Office Electricity and 303,998 tons for Scope 2.
11 Starting in fiscal 2014, we classified Natural Gas usage as Scope 2 emissions from the Scope 1 emissions they had been classified previously.
12 Electronic Waste (e-waste) is the most significant environmental aspect in our waste stream and includes laptops and workstations with disposal method tracked in Accenture’s global asset management system. Other waste streams result primarily from our office-based activities, many of which include recycling services that are both inside and outside our operational control, and overall are not considered to have a significant environmental impact.
13 Fiscal 2017 Total Water Consumption is derived from 65% measured data and estimating the remainder based on average per-workstation consumption from measured locations.
14 “Other Type Business” consists of the following subcategories: Service-Disabled Veteran, Veteran, Historically Underutilized Business Zone, and LGBT.
