SG 14.4a CC: We interpreted this as a chart for our firm. As a small firm, we have not measured our own carbon footprint, however in moving to new offices (Q42016), we took a number of initiatives to be more sustainable and reduce electricity consumption. We deployed LED lighting and used recycled materials for carpeting (fishing nets). The office design used other sustainable and energy-saving materials, maximized daylight and limited plastics and vinyls.
For our investment strategies, we use carbon metrics from CDP and Trucost for our investable universe of companies. Other vendors also have carbon metrics incorporated in their scores. For example, we use Total Carbon Emissions (tCO1e) and Total Footprint (tCO2e/$M). We do the same for water, where we look at Total Water Usage and Water Footprinting. These include Direct, Purchased and Supply Chain contributions. (Please see 14.10 as well).
