Environmental Stewardship at SAIC
Although SAIC’s environmental footprint is modest, we are committed to assessing, reducing, and mitigating our environmental impact. By acting as responsible environmental citizens, we are generating results that are good for our planet now and in the future.
Our practices and environmental targets are helping ensure a more sustainable world for our employees, families, and communities.
SAIC implements ISO 14001 environmental management standards where required, promotes initiatives to reduce our direct environmental impact, and tracks and reports key performance metrics, such as greenhouse gas emissions, energy conservation, and recycling.
We focus our efforts to make a difference. For additional details, see our ISO 14001 Standards Fact Sheet. We focus our environmental efforts in three areas, on which we also report our performance through the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) KPI Content Index.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
SAIC has set an emissions reduction goal of 15% below 2014 base year emissions, by 2025.
We have made significant progress in our emissions reduction performance over the most recent fouryear period. Collective efforts across our company have resulted in a total greenhouse gas emissions reduction of more than 36%, or 9% per year, which we measure in terms of emissions by metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (MTCO2e) at facilities operationally controlled by SAIC.
These results, which include Scope I and Scope II emissions, were determined following the method outlined in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard.
