Ingredient Safety and Toxicity G4-PR1 and PR2 Customer Health and Safety Covers all products except bobble. Greenhouse Gas Emissions (replacing Waste in the top materiality category) G4-EN18 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Intensity G4-EN19 Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions While energy scored higher than Greenhouse Gas emissions, the Corporate Consciousness team overrode this to replace energy with GHG emission reporting. We have been tracking GHG emissions for years and do not have accessible data for energy. Also, tracking GHG emissions is more meaningful for us as it is a more direct marker of impact. We have yet to fully tackle the GHG emissions that occur during consumer use of our laundry products but have engaged consumers around this (e.g., through our “Get Out of Hot Water” campaign) and are beginning to work with our industry on this. Emissions during consumer use are outside the boundary of this 2013 report. See Greenhouse Gas Emissions for an explanation of what we track. Waste/Recycled Materials G4-EN2 Percentage of materials used that are recycled input materials Seventh Generation’s focus in the area of waste is on ensuring that our products and packaging are recyclable or biodegradable and that they provide directions about their responsible disposition through How2Recycle Labels. Also see Advocacy. Recycled materials for all products and packaging excluding bobble are included. Employee Wellbeing G4-LA2, 11, 13 Labor Practices and Decent Work All company employees (including those for bobble) are covered. We have not reported on employee issues at our manufacturing partners or their suppliers.
