Another important component of IBM's energy and climate protection programs is disclosure and transparency. IBM participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project at its inception in 2002 and has submitted data to all of the
CDP disclosure activities through 2012, providing disclosure of the company's energy and climate data. IBM's responses to the latest CDP questionnaire is attached below and also available on the
CDP website (link resides outside of ibm.com).

- U.S. Energy's Voluntary Greenhouse Gas Emissions (1605b) Reporting: IBM was one of three manufacturers to begin reporting its greenhouse gas emissions when it was initiated in 1995. IBM reported its global GHG
emissions to this program until it was suspended after the 2005 reporting year.
- Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX): IBM joined CCX in its first year (2002) and participated in the program through the 2010 reporting year, the final year of the program. During that period, IBM disclosed its energy use and
direct and indirect GHG emissions from its North American operations to the CCX registry and reduced its North American CO2e emissions by 19.9 percent exceeding its commitment under the program to reduce those emissions by
6 percent by 2010.
