4 Global Warming Potential



1 We believe that sales excluding precious metals is a better measure of the growth of the group than revenue. Total revenue can be heavily distorted by year on year fluctuations in the market prices of precious metals. In addition, in many cases, the value of precious metals is passed directly on to our customers.

2 Before amortisation of acquired intangibles, major impairment and restructuring charges, profit or loss on disposal of businesses, significant tax rate changes and, where relevant, related tax effects.

3 Per 200,000 working hours in a rolling year.

4 Restated to include energy derived from the combustion of bottled gases at a small number of sites.

5 Restated to include Scope 1 manufacturing process derived emissions and emissions due to the combustion of bottled gases.
