LIST OF ENTITIES INCLUDED IN CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

We report on our subsidiaries and affiliates where we have direct operational control, unless otherwise noted. Significant year-over-year changes are noted. Where possible, we also use consistent reporting measures, such as per square foot rather than per building or per site. The environmental data for 2015 is reported for 16 locations. These 16 locations meet the reporting criteria of ISO 14001 certified (or certified sometime during the year) or EHSMS at any time during the year or sites greater than 140,000 square feet.

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES FROM PREVIOUS REPORTING PERIODS IN THE SCOPE AND ASPECT BOUNDARIES

Agilent completed the spinoff of its former electronic measurement business, Keysight Technologies, on November 1, 2014. As a result, Corporate Citizenship data for financial year 2015 (1 November 2014 - 30 Oct 2015) only contains information about Agilent.

As a result of the spin-off, company's list of sites in scope for this report have reduced, and criteria for selection of sites has also been modified.

New criteria for including particular site performance in Corporate Citizenship Report was also modified. As per the new reporting criteria, a site needs to be either ISO:14001 certified (at any point during the year) or have EHSMS at any time during the year or the site should be greater than 140,000 square feet.
