ROADRUNNER DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
Financial Disclosure and Corporate Governance Statements - Pre-existing language
METHODOLOGY AND SOURCES
* Baseline Methodologies
RoadRunner uses the following volumetric conversion standards to determine material tonnages from container volumes and confirmed service frequencies when no other tonnage data is available from verified material
- EPA (2016), Volume to Weight Conversion Factors
- South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control US Volume to Weight
- EPA Solvents Conversion Factors
* Emissions Calculations
RoadRunner references the most recent EPA Waste Reduction Model and Emissions Factors Hub to determine which end of life material disposal categories qualify for scope inclusion, diversion credits, and carbon impact accounting; based on material types, outlet disposal process, manifest recorded waste streams, & generator location regulations. RoadRunner also references the IGES GHG Calculator for Mixed Waste as recommended by the NDC Partnership.
RoadRunner runs all volumetric conversion totals against a predetermined average container fullness percentage to account for real world tonnage impacts such as bulky materials, seasonal consumption, and missed services. Fullness percentage figure is generated through verified waste metering pilots with aligned service data. Additional customer data may be used to calibrate alternative container fullness percentages for their own unique accounts.

Statement on Enhanced Standardization of Climate Disclosures
“ Scope 3 emissions would be subject to a materiality qualifier, and would not be subject to any level of assurance. See Proposal at 159, 225. However, if a company identifies Scope 3 emissions as part of an emissions target or goal, then disclosure would be required. See Proposal at 489 (proposed Item 1504(c)).”
