We consider our company to be exposed to regulatory risks. 
Preliminary Statement/Overview & answer 1 1 ADP’ s formal response Carbon Disclosure Project’ s annual questionnaire response glad provide details (5) important completed ongoing projects initiatives reduced continue help reduce ADP’ s GHG emissions positive impacts environment projects initiatives described ADP’ s (1) data center centralization/consolidation project (the “ DC/IT Project” ) (2) real estate consolidation project (the “ R E Consolidation” ) (3) Lighting Retrofit project (the “ Retrofit Initiative” ) (4) vehicle fleet conversion project (the “ VFC Project” ) (5) HVAC upgrade project (the “ HVAC Strategy” ) provide basic information “ green” developments activities underway planned future ADP time ADP does fully implemented company wide carbon management place gather
