This, the NVIDIA 2013 Global Citizenship Report, covers NVIDIA Corporation's economic, social, and environmental performance for our fiscal year 2013, which ended January 27, 2013. We report our performance annually via our website. Environmental metrics are reported for the calendar year 2012.
Previous global citizenship reports:
The report includes consolidated economic, financial, and social information for our global operations. The environmental information contained in this report covers global operations for energy, water and greenhouse gas, and our Santa Clara, Calif., headquarters for waste. In 2011 we implemented a carbon tracking and energy management system, which has enabled us to better analyze and report on energy and greenhouse gas data from our international operations. We report on those entities over which we exercise operational control, including subsidiaries and leased facilities (except for shared space).
There have been no significant changes during the reporting period with regard to the scope, boundary, or measurement methods applied in this report.
We determined the content for this report based on conversations among management and with customers, suppliers, and employees. We have applied the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (GRI G3), including the Guidance on Defining Report Content. We have received a GRI B+ Application Level Check from the Global Reporting Initiative.
The GRI index, which contains standard disclosures, can be found here. We have engaged Trucost to provide limited assurance on our 2012 global Scope 1 and 2 Greenhouse Gas emissions under the AA1000 assurance standards. The assurance report is available in the Environmental Management section.
