Lexmark calculates water data for all owned and operated sites and includes a portion of leased spaces as data is available. The 2016 water data represents approximately 75 percent of Lexmark’s 2016 estimated square footage of Lexmark occupied space. Lexmark’s acquisitions have accounted for increased total leased space worldwide. Reported data covers the 2016 calendar year.
Slight changes may occur in the reporting boundary for location changes. The lease in Shawnee, Kansas, ended in 2015; therefore, water withdrawal is not reported for this location in 2016 and this data, as well as historic data for other sites that are no longer under Lexmark control, have been moved to “Other.” Water was sourced from local municipal water suppliers, unless reused from another process on site.
Water risks have been assessed using the Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas.
Metered readings and utility bills were used to calculate and/or estimate water withdrawal and water reuse. Water data was recalculated at the Boulder location between 2013 and 2016 as a new calculation methodology allowed for a better estimate of actual water withdrawal at this location, resulting in updated data for this individual location and total water reported. New meters were also installed at the facility in Boulder, allowing for greater accuracy in reporting. The 2005 Total Water Withdrawal was not recalculated and represents the reporting boundary and calculation methodology used during that year.
Wastewater from Lexmark operations is primarily discharged to local utility systems (sanitary sewer) for treatment, but is not metered at many of our reporting locations; discharge to the local utility is assumed to be equivalent to withdrawal. Prior to 2016 reporting, Lexmark conservatively reported 100 percent discharge of wastewater to the local utility for Juarez and Boulder due to lack of metered wastewater data. Data was available in Boulder to allow for the delineation of wastewater discharge details. Data was unavailable for previous years in Juarez and will be reported for 2016 and moving forward.
Meters are in place in Boulder, Lexington and Juarez for certain water use and/or discharge activities.
