*1 In calculating CO2 emissions from electricity, the actual emission factor published by electric power companies was used until FY 2018, and adjusted emission factor was used in FY 2019 and after. Category 1 of Scope 3 is counted from FY 2018, categories 4, 11, and 12 are counted from FY 2019, and Category 9 is counted from FY2020. The remaining categories 8, 10, 13, 14 and 15 are not counted.
In order to improve the reliability of the calculated emissions, we have undergone third-party verification by the Japan Quality Assurance Organization.
