SalesForce incorrect carbon data

The first thing to notice about this data is that it is over two months out-of-date. I took a screenshot of this page (www.salesforce.com/company/sustainability/impact.jsp) in Oct - when I took the screenshot it was just over two weeks out-of-date. Now, it is still displaying the same data a month and a half later!

 

The real crime though is that this is obfuscation. Salesforce are talking about how much carbon they are saving, not how much they are emitting. If their calculations on carbon savings in this graph are as inaccurate as their carbon savings in this image www.flickr.com/photos/traftery/8202873564/ then it should be taken with a large vat of salt - even when up-to-date.
