The boundary for GHG emissions covers Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions.
Scope 1/Direct emissions include the use of fossil fuels, refrigerants and fleet vehicle transport based on available data.
The Scope 2 emissions boundary represents indirect energy consumption/electrical power purchased for use at approximately 100 percent of Lexmark owned and leased locations using the operational control approach. Data prior to the 2015 base year will not be recalculated.
Scope 1 and 2 GHG emission intensity is calculated per Lexmark square footage. 2015 square footage: 5,680,257 and 2016 square footage: 5,734,639.
Lexmark publicly reports GHG emissions that are related to the use of direct and indirect energy through the Carbon Disclosure Project. Using the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and World Resource Institute (WRI) Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) methodology, we track greenhouse gas emissions, as well as our use of natural gas, fuel oil, diesel, gasoline and electricity.
Scope 1 emissions data is received from site inputs such as onsite refrigerant tracking, natural gas utility bills and maintenance records.
Scope 2 emissions are calculated based on energy usage for all owned and operated sites. Data is calculated from utility bills or landlord billings where available. For leased sites where metered data is available through utility bills and other invoices, the data is compared to the average intensity for the region and increased for HVAC energy support if higher or left the same as a region otherwise. For leased sites where no metered data is available, current International Energy Agency (IEA) data for the country is used to estimate usage, and all energy use (direct office use and HVAC support) is assumed to be electrically derived.
|Category 1||Purchased Goods and Services||Lexmark conducts Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) of our imaging equipment in accordance to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. The LCAs cover the emissions of our products from raw material extraction and processing through manufacturing and distribution through use and end-of-life. will be used to report estimated emissions for Purchased Goods and Services, as well as other Scope 3 categories. Assumptions and methodology behind our LCAs may be found in our EPDs, which are published according to ISO 14045 and third party verified for completeness and accuracy. A small amount of dot matrix printers and older laser models are not included. 2016 reporting does not include full cartridge impacts; but will be a goal of future reporting.|
|Category 2||Capital Goods||Assessed using average-spend based method and emission factors from Embodied Energy and Emission Intensity Data (3E1D) published by the National Institute for Environmental Studies Center for Global Environmental Research.|
|Category 3||Fuel and energy related activities not accounted for in Scope 1 and 2||Not applicable to Lexmark at this time.|
|Category 4||Upstream Transport||Emissions calculated using the distance-based method for inbound, outbound and LCCP product logistics impacts in EMEA. Assumptions for transport within the U.S. are calculated as part of the imaging equipment LCAs and reported through Category 11, Use of sold products|
|Category 5||Waste in Operations||Emissions resulting from non-hazardous and hazardous waste disposal at Lexmark reporting locations (see Waste Management section/Waste Dashboard for locations) assessed using the waste-type-specific method. Tools used for calculation include the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waste Reduction Model (WARM), Version 14 and Waste Sector GHG Protocol Calculation Tool, Version 5, October 2013. Avoided emissions are not included.|
|Category 6||Business Travel||Covers business travel worldwide based on availability of data. 2016 reporting covers data as reported for U.S. (rentals and fleet vehicles), Canada (rentals and fleet vehicles), Kolkata, Cebu, Shenzhen, Juarez, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Budapest. Air travel is currently reported for locations worldwide using our primary corporate travel agencies. We estimate that the data not currently reported is minimal. Leased vehicle reports are provided by rental agencies. Travel agency partners provide reports for business travel via air.|
|Category 7||Employee Commuting||Estimated using the average data method. When available, average annual working days data was sourced for representative geographies. Vehicle types and average commute distances were primarily based on a U.S. transportation survey, with inputs from geographies where data existed. The World Resources Institute (2015). GHG Protocol tool for mobile combustion, Version 2.6 was used for calculation.|
|Category 8||Upstream Leased Assets||Not applicable at this time.|
|Category 9||Downstream Transport||Not applicable at this time.|
|Category 10||Processing of Sold Products||Not assessed at this time.|
|Category 11||Use of Sold Products||Calculated as part of the imaging equipment LCAs.|
|Category 12||End of Life Treatment of Sold Products||Calculated as part of the imaging equipment LCAs. Emissions from processing cartridges returned to Lexmark through LCCP are captured in Scopes 1 and 2 for Lexmark-owned return facilities.|
|Category 13||Downstream Leased Assets||Data included for Lexmark owned space leased to tenants for which the tenant has operational control.|
|Category 14||Franchises||Not applicable to Lexmark at this time.|

Regulated air emissions are reported for our primary research and development and manufacturing locations, with the exception of Cebu City, Philippines.
Lexmark monitors regulated air emissions and submits the necessary reports to agencies requesting this information. Meeting our goals to reduce or eliminate toxic release inventory (TRI) chemicals on site, Lexmark works to maintain minimal emissions
An error was identified in the program that calculates Volatile Organic Compounds (non-methane), CO2 and Hazardous Air Pollutant at the Boulder location. The 2016 data reflects the program change; prior years have not been recalculated.
