Notes: Note 1: This symbol ◊ before an indicator denotes an environmental commitment through Goldman Sachs’ 2015 EPF; reductions are from a 2013 baseline. Note 2: 2014 commercial air travel emissions were adjusted from originally reported to reflect materially significant methodology change to emission factors. Note 3: This includes charter air, rail/bus, ferry and car. Note 4: The total for LEED square footage is based on RSF where Goldman Sachs has certified as the project owner, inclusive of subleased RSF. The total for ISO 14001 square footage is based on RSF where Goldman Sachs maintains operational control, and is exclusive of subleased space. Note 5: Some historical values have been adjusted to reflect new accounting procedures. Note 6: An adjustment has been made to historically reported 2015 Global Business Waste and associated breakdown to correct a double-counting error. Note 7: CDP made an adjustment to climate change scoring methodology and leadership designations starting in 2016.
