Note on data
The Group total carbon footprint has been calculated by extrapolating office energy and business flight data reported by our major companies. This extrapolation covers all WPP companies excluding associates (companies in which we have a minority shareholding). This represents the footprint of the average number of staff employed by the Group being 77,686 people.
