Note: F2013 electricity consumption and emissions figures may differ slightly from those published in the F2013 IAR because Scope 1 and 2 emissions were provisionally calculated at the time. These emissions have subsequently been reviewed and externally verified and have been accurately disclosed in our CDP submission in May 2014.
