Promoting conservation and sustainability.
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are an important gauge in overall environmental impact. SAIC recognizes the risks climate change poses to our environment, and we are committed to reducing our environmental footprint. As part of this commitment, SAIC measures, monitors, and tracks our GHG emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2) at those facilities over which we have operational control and publicly discloses those emissions.
In 2014, SAIC set a goal of reducing emissions (Scopes 1 and 2) by 15% by 2025 and exceeded that goal with a reduction of 25% in 2016. To further encourage cuts to our carbon footprint, we use 2019 as a new baseline and have established a new interim goal of an additional 15% by 2025 for Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions to ensure we continue to make significant progress in reducing emissions. SAIC chose 2019 as the new base year due to significant changes in our real estate portfolio associated with the acquisition of Engility in January 2019.
In calendar year 2021, Scope 1 — direct emissions from owned or controlled sources — were 3% higher than our baseline year of 2019. Scope 2 — indirect emissions from purchased electricity — were 14% below 2020 levels and nearly 33% below the 2019 baseline. The modest increase in Scope 1 emissions is attributed to a more severe winter. These GHG emissions figures were measured in terms of emissions by metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (MTCO2e). Additionally, between 2019 and 2021, we lowered our emissions by square foot of property from 0.006 to 0.0047 (measured in MTCO2e/sf).
Emissions at facilities operationally controlled by SAIC measured in MTCO2e:
- 2021 – 10,433
- 2020 – 11,720
- 2019 – 15,037 (increase was due primarily to additional facilities obtained through the acquisition of Engility)
- 2018 – 9,971
- 2017 - 10,092
- 2016 - 11,749
- 2015 - 15,388
- 2014 - 15,790 (adjusted from previously reported 11,952 to include Scitor Corp., which was acquired by SAIC in May 2015)
These results, which include Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, were determined following the method outlined in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard.
