5.1 THE ENVIRONMENT
OTHER INDIRECT EMISSIONS (SCOPE 3) 54% OF TOTAL 2017 EMISSIONS
Other Indirect Emissions are
defined as emissions resulting
from an organisation’s activities,
which arise from sources owned or
controlled by third parties.
We have identified our material
“Other Indirect Emissions” sources
as emissions from:
1. Tenant energy consumption
(electricity, steam, heating and
cooling, and natural gas);
2. Mixed waste generated in
operations;
3. Employee air travel; and
4. Employee commute to and
from work.
This category of emissions is the
largest component of our emissions
profile and comprised 54% of our
total GHG emissions in 2017. A
full breakdown of our Scope 3
emissions is provided in section 7.2
in the Appendices to this Report.
Overall, our Scope 3 emissions
increased by approximately 97%
in 2017. This increase is largely
due to increased tenant steam
consumption at Westfield World
Trade Center in 2017. The centre
was only operational five months in
2016, while it operated the full year
in 2017. Excluding Westfield World
Trade Center’s substantial increase
in tenant steam consumption,
Scope 3 emissions decreased by
approximately 11%.
