[Data calculation standards]

  • *1The scope of data collection is the same as the scope for energy consumption data. Figures were calculated using the emissions factors specified in "Ministerial Order Concerning Greenhouse Gas Emissions Accompanying the Business Activities of Specified Emitters" (Final revision as of May 27, 2016; Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry/Ministry of the Environment Ordinance No. 5). Please note that with regard to the volume of direct and indirect energy consumption, past data has been reviewed because of changes in the applicable locations due to relocation of offices, etc., and, therefore, some data may differ from information made public previously.
  • *2CO2 emissions are being calculated based on the actual and adjusted emissions factors of individual electric power companies.
  • *3Calculated based on "CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion" announced by the International Energy Agency publication.
  • *4"Basic Guidelines Ver. 2.1 Concerning the Calculation of Greenhouse Gas Emission Volume throughout Supply Chains" (Ministry of the Environment and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, March 2014).)
  • *5Calculated based on Guidelines for Calculating Greenhouse Gas Emissions Other than Energy–Related CO2 under the Tokyo Cap–and–Trade Program (Published by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's Bureau of Environment in March 2012).

[Third–party audits]

With regard to direct energy consumption and indirect energy consumption, in fiscal 2013 and subsequent years, about 30% of performance data was subjected to third–party audits based on "The Tokyo Cap–and–Trade Program."
