*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. Scope 3 is the sum of categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, and 12. (Category 1 is counted from FY 2018, and 4, 11, and 12 are counted from FY 2019.)
In order to improve the reliability of the calculated emissions, we have undergone third-party verification by the Japan Quality Assurance Organization.
