a We are restating the impacts for all years from the baseline year 2012 annually to enable comparisons to be made. Reporting period from 1 October 2011 to 30 September 2017.

b We report Scope 1 and 2 emissions as defined by the GHG protocol as follows:

Scope 1 (Direct emissions): combustion of fuel and operation of facilities; and
Scope 2 (Indirect emissions): electricity, heat, steam and cooling purchased for own use.
