11 Better Future 11 Better FutureNet Good Ensuring robustness BT asked the Carbon Trust and Camanoe Associates (researchers from MIT) to endorse both the methodology and BT’s assumptions Ensuring robustness BT asked the Carbon Trust and Camanoe Associates (researchers from MIT) to endorse both the methodology and BT’s assumptions Endorsement Carbon Trust and Camanoe Associates reviewed the Scope 1,2 & 3 measurement approach and the approach to measuring carbon abatement on a product by product basis, evaluating 15 products and services in total Endorsement Carbon Trust and Camanoe Associates reviewed the Scope 1,2 & 3 measurement approach and the approach to measuring carbon abatement on a product by product basis, evaluating 15 products and services in total After establishing a firm understanding of the product or service, Carbon Trust and Camanoe Associates looked at the carbon footprint model including the approach and assumptions; the carbon factor, their values and the data sources used in the calculations The 3:1 methodology: External endorsement © British Telecommunications plc

13 Better Future 13 Better FutureNet Good As an extension of our open sourced approach we’ll be inviting further comment/ critique at an online forum on 2 July. The Better Future Forum will be an opportunity for BT to share its experience so far and learn from others through open discussions, independently moderated. We have made the methodology available via our website & we’ll be inviting suggestions for further improvements. Online Forum The 3:1 methodology: Engaging stakeholders to evolve our approach © British Telecommunications plc Following the review BT worked with The Climate Group and The Carbon Trust on a stakeholder consultation to gather further feedback from industry experts. Consultation The feedback from the consultation and today’s launch event organized by The Climate Group will be used to further evolve the methodology. Feedback
