  • Greenhouse gas emissions: Calculated based on Japanese law
  • Greenhouse gases include CO2 (carbon dioxide), CH4 (methane), N2O (nitrogen monoxide), HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons), PFCs (perfluorocarbons), SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride), NF3 (nitrogen trifluoride).
  • Greenhouse gas emissions intensity is calculated by dividing (Scope 1 + Scope 2) emissions (the numerator) by sales (the denominator).
  • Calculated by scope according to the following GHG Protocol Initiative classification
    Scope 1: Direct emissions of greenhouse gases generated from emission sources owned or controlled by businesses
    Scope 2: Indirect emissions of greenhouse gases from the use of electricity, steam, and heat
    Scope 3: Except for Scope 1 and Scope 2, other indirect emissions covering the upstream and downstream processes of the Company
  • All Scope 3 emissions since 2017 have been revised to reflect changes in Scope 3 Category 1 emission coefficients. For this reason, the total is not the same as the sum of each scope
