In FY2014, the Group’s overall greenhouse gas emissions increased year-on-year by 27 kilotons-CO2e. This figure includes an increase from 183 kilotons-CO2e to 200 kilotons-CO2e at domestic sites and an increase from 275 kilotons-CO2e to 285 kilotons-CO2e at overseas sites compared with FY2013 (See G1).
Energy consumption for the Group overall increased by 12 thousand kiloliters from FY2013. This figure includes an increase from 81 thousand kiloliters to 89 thousand kiloliters at domestic sites and an increase from 117 thousand kiloliters to 121 thousand kiloliters at overseas sites compared with FY2013 (See G2).
The breakdown of energy consumption was 93% in SCOPE 2 and 7% in SCOPE 1 (See G3).
The average energy consumption per unit of the environmental medium-term target improved by 37.2% for FY2011-14 (See G4).
We continue to work on reviewing production processes, especially those for our major products, in order to further improve production efficiency and reduce total energy consumption.
Note: Changes in the conversion factor have a major impact on greenhouse gas calculations, so the medium-term environmental targets were set according to energy consumption (crude oil equivalent), a factor that has measureable results.
Note: Greenhouse gas emissions are calculated using GHG Protocol factors (electricity by country).
Note: There was a review and revision to the CO2 conversion factor of electricity in regards to domestic greenhouse gas emissions in FY2013. In FY2014, the FY2013 CO2 conversion factor was used.
