*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 2014 to 30 September 2015.
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 4.8% reduction.
