    For Japan: Factors specified by the Act on the Rational Use of Energy and the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures.
    For overseas: Factors obtained from fuel suppliers or factors specified by the Act on the Rational Use of Energy and the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures.

    GHG from Electricity consumption:
    For Japan: The adjusted emission factors for each electric power company specified by the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures.
    For overseas: Factors obtained from individual power suppliers or IEA emission factors by country.

    GHG other than CO2:
    For 26 plants in Japan: Factors specified by the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures

  • *
    The total may not match the sum of each figure due to rounding.
  • *
    The above emissions do not take into account the emissions offset by purchasing carbon credits. If the offset emissions which are approximately 110 thousand tons, are taken into account, the total of Scope 1 and 2 emissions will be 764 thousand tons in 2020. (Carbon credits we purchased were generated from projects, such as a project facilitating reforestation for Guangxi watershed management in Pearl River Basin supported by the Bio Carbon Fund of the World Bank.)
