*We are continuing to improve the quantity and quality of the environment data reported by hotels using the IHG Green Engage system; enabling us to improve the accuracy of our data. Each year our estate changes and the number of hotels reporting data increases, enabling our sampling to become more representative. Consequently, 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 2015 to 30 September 2016. We calculate our environmental performance up to 15 decimal places. We have rounded to 2 decimal places in this report.

**We calculate water performance to 15 decimal places. Using full decimal place calculation results in a 7.9% reduction.

***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.
