Calculation of GHG
  • The emission factor used is based on the Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Reporting System.
  • The emission factor associated with the use of electricity is the emission factor for each site in Japan. However, overseas sites use 0.000375t-CO2 / kWh in or before FY2017 while emission factor associated with the use of electricity for each site is used in FY2018.
  • CO2 emissions reduction value based on Tradable Green Certificates is not included.
