Scope2 CO2 calculation method
Up through fiscal 2018: Location-based (calculated using the average CO2 emission coefficient for the power network in that region)
From fiscal 2019: Market-based (calculated using the CO2 emission coefficient for each power purchase agreement)
The calculation method was changed because market-based calculation is more accurate and has become the mainstream method used in recent years.
Total energy consumption is the total amount of purchased power converted into primary energy. Totals will therefore differ from numbers in tables.
Chemical substances specified by Japanese law
Recycled volume: refers to everything other than landfill disposal.
Hazardous waste volume: “Waste as defined by the laws of each country.” In Japan, it refers to specially controlled industrial waste.
Final disposal volume: refers to landfill disposal (zero emissions achieved domestically).
Volume consumed: calculated by subtracting waste-water volume from water-intake volume.
Recycling rate: Calculated by dividing recycled volume by the sum of recycled volume and water intake volume.
