GRENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS (METRIC TONS)* GHG EMISSION SOURCES DROP IN TOTAL GHG INTENSITY 768.+151.+124. 705.+166.+127. 747.+169.+133. Materials, Ingredients, Packaging Our decrease in GHG emissions intensity is due to the combined effect of these initiatives: • The use of plant-based ingredients which generally have lower carbon footprints than petroleum-based choices (See USDA Biobased Certification) drops • A decentralized network of distribution centers that reduce shipping product transport distances • Packaging that maximizes recycled materials seventh generation 2013 corporate consciousness report  29 Product Transport Facilities, Commuting, Business Travel 780 700 620 Total GHG intensity 2011 2012 2013 11% ‘12 to ‘13   2011 2012 2013 2012–13 % CHA NGE Materials, Ingredients, Packaging 51,219 47,431 49,858 4.5% Product Transport 10,885 11,113 11,342 2.0% Facilities, Commuting, Business Travel** 831 849 887 4.0% Total Emissions 62,935 59,394 62,087 4.6% Total Emissions intensity (per metric ton of product and packaging) 1.56 1.40 1.24 11.0% * More information on GHG tracking methodology is contained in the GRI Content Index.
