Note: These are approximate figures. We are developing our methodology for obtaining these figures and this has changed from 2014 to what we think is a more robust methodology now:

  • In 2014 we obtained figures from purchase orders and did not include in-house expertise (employees and 'other workers'/long-term office-based consultants).
  • From 2015 onwards we obtained figures from records of invoices booked in the reporting year (UK, Senegal and Greenland). An estimate for in-house expertise was included. Some expenditure may have been omitted as it is not always easily recognisable in the invoice records as environmental-related.
