1 Beginning in 2021, the Company reports adjusted earnings per diluted share excluding amortization expense relating to intangible assets from completed acquisitions. Adjusted earnings per diluted share for 2020 has been recast to exclude acquisition-related amortization expense. For detailed information regarding these adjustments, see the Regulation G Reconciliation in Item 7 of our 2021 Form 10-K.

2 Environmental data changes from prior reporting reflect adjustments for acquired and divested locations from the 2017 baseline onward. Energy data also include adjustments for closed locations.

3 Volunteer hours for 2016 through 2018 are for our COLORFUL COMMUNITIES® program only. Data for 2019 and 2020 is for the Colorful Communities program and Charity Partner program in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
