Adjusted net Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions:
Performance year Baseline year
Adjusted net GHG emissions 6,446 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent 10,009 Metric Tons of CO2 Equivalent

Start and end dates of the performance year and baseline year (or three-year periods):
Performance year Baseline year
Start date June 1, 2019 June 1, 2006
End date May 31, 2020 May 31, 2007

A brief description of when and why the GHG emissions baseline was adopted:

Past HWS President Mark Gearan signed the ACUPCC in September of 2007. Thus, FY 2007 serves as the baseline year for all sustainability indicators for which data is available.
