Note 1: “Supplier Interaction” means that companies take concrete action to inform and discuss sustainability issues with suppliers when managing climate change to reduce potential risks in the future.

Note 2: Three categories of greenhouse gas emissions (volume 1-3):

  • Scope 1: direct emissions from sources owned or controlled by the organization (eg diesel, petrol, natural gas, etc.)
  • Scope 2: indirect emissions from electricity purchased by the organization
  • Scope 3: Other indirect emissions, including carbon emissions, that result from organizational activities upstream and downstream in the company’s value chain.
