  1. *1See Boundaries for Reporting of ESH Data for scope of calculations.
  2. *2Energy is calculated by per-unit calorific values according to the Act on the Rational Use of Energy. Although we deducted the amount of CO2 emissions equivalent to the amount of energy sold to other companies from the data for fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019, this amount has not been deducted from the data for fiscal 2020.
  3. *3Includes CO2, methane and nitrous oxide.
  4. *4Corrected to data calculated based on the GHG Protocol.
  5. *5Calculated as the amount of avoided CO2 emissions that the Company's products have contributed to in the supply chain downstream
  6. *6Data for fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019 was calculated based on the Law Concerning the Promotion of the Measures to Cope with Global Warming, while data for fiscal 2020 was calculated based on the GHG Protocol. Although we deducted the amount of CO2 emissions equivalent to the amount of energy sold to other companies from the data for fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019, this amount has not been deducted from the data for fiscal 2020. In addition, the scope of calculation for fiscal 2020 includes non-energy-derived CO2 emissions from carbon fiber production, calculated based on the chemical reaction balance. With regard to coefficients for fuel, we use emissions coefficients based on the Law Concerning the Promotion of the Measures to Cope with Global Warming for all of the data from fiscal 2018 to fiscal 2020. As for emissions coefficients for electricity, we use adjusted emissions coefficients of individual electric power companies for power purchased in Japan. For power purchased overseas, we use power company-specific coefficients, in principle. However, in cases where the power company-specific coefficient is unknown, we apply the latest available IEA country-specific emissions coefficient.
  7. *7Scope 3 emissions are calculated for Category (C)1 (Purchased goods and services), C2 (Capital goods), C3 (Fuel- and energy- related activities (not included in scope1 and scope 2), C4 (Upstream transportation and distribution), C5 (Waste generated in operations), C6 (Business travel), and C7 (Employee commuting). (The description was corrected on January 31, 2022)
  8. *8The calculation criteria for Category 1 are as follows:
    Category 1 emissions are calculated by multiplying the purchased weight or purchased value of purchased goods and services by the emissions intensity in units of weight or value. Products procured through the Teijin Group's trading businesses are also included in the Category 1 calculation. Also, emissions intensity data for monetary units is from the Ministry of the Environment's Emissions Unit Values for Accounting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, etc., by Organizations Throughout the Supply Chain (Ver. 3.1) (March 2021) (Emissions Unit Values Database V. 3.1). Emissions intensity data for weight units is based on the intensity data of the Ecoinvent Database (operated by Ecoinvent Association) or the GaBi Database (operated by Sphera).
  9. *9The amount of freshwater intake is the total of industrial water, groundwater and tap water.
  10. *10Among the Class 1 designated chemical substances under the Act on Confirmation, etc. of Release Amounts of Specific Chemical Substances in the Environment and Promotion of Improvements to the Management Thereof and chemical substances indicated by the Japan Chemical Industry Association, chemical substances harmful to aquatic environments and the ozone layer are subject to the calculation of atmospheric, water, and soil emissions.
  11. *11For emissions of Class 1 chemical substances listed in the Chemical Substances Management Law and chemical substances designated by the Japan Chemical Industry Association, the figures shown are the total of emissions into the atmosphere, soil and water, and landfill amounts within business sites.
  12. *12Applies to wastewater discharged into rivers, oceans and lakes.
  13. *13Waste with no effective use refers to waste incinerated without heat recovery and waste for landfill.
  14. *14Total CO2 emissions are calculated for Scope 1, Scope 2, and Category (C)1 (Purchased goods and services), C2 (Capital goods), C3 (Fuel- and energy- related activities (not included in scope1 and scope 2), C4 (Upstream transportation and distribution), C5 (Waste generated in operations), C6 (Business travel), C7 (Employee commuting) in Scope 3.
