The NVIDIA 2014 Global Citizenship Report covers NVIDIA Corporation's economic, social and environmental performance for our fiscal year 2014, which ended January 26, 2014. We report our performance annually via our website. Environmental metrics are reported for the calendar year 2013.
Previous global citizenship reports:
The report includes consolidated economic, environmental and social information for our global operations. The environmental information contained in this report covers energy and greenhouse gas usage for our global operations, and water and waste usage for our Santa Clara, Calif., headquarters. We report on those entities over which we exercise operational control, including subsidiaries and leased facilities (except for shared space).
No significant changes have occurred during the reporting period with regard to the scope, boundary or measurement methods applied in this report. In 2014, we updated the scope of our operational boundary for the purposes of greenhouse gas tracking. We now calculate emissions on global offices with greater than 50,000 square feet of office space (which equal 90% of our total greenhouse gas footprint) and estimate emissions for offices that comprise the remaining 10% of our footprint.
We determined the content for this report based on conversations among management and engagement with customers, suppliers and employees. We have applied the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines (GRI G4), including the Guidance on Defining Report Content, at the “Core In Accordance” level. In 2013, we reported to the GRI G3 Guidelines at the B+ Application Level, and our report received an application level check by the GRI.
The GRI index, which contains standard disclosures, can be found here. We have engaged Trucost to provide limited assurance on our 2013 global Scope 1 and 2 Greenhouse Gas emissions under the AA1000 assurance standards. The assurance report is available in the Environment section.
