Third-party verification

In order to ensure the reliability of its environmental data reporting, in fiscal 2011 Casio began requesting third-party verification.

Casio commissioned SGS Japan Co., Ltd. to conduct the audit in fiscal 2018. The audit covered greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1, 2 and Categories 1, 4 and 11 of Scope 3), water intake, waste and emissions of atmospheric pollutants.

Of the sites covered, on-site surveys were conducted at the Casio (Thailand) Co., Ltd., and the Casio Electronic Technology (Zhongshan) Co., Ltd.

Leased-office sites are not included in the scope of calculation because water usage and waste was difficult to ascertain.

Calculation Standards

  1. Overall
  2. Inputs
  3. Outputs
  4. Scope 3 calculation methods
    Category 1 Purchased goods and services Amount of activity: Amount of purchased consumables, raw materials, and packaging materials, salaries of temporary staff, purchased tap water, industrial water, and advertising expenses.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying each item by the emissions unit of the purchased amount and adding together the total.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment and CFP COMMUNICATION PROGRAM DB version 1.01.
    Category 2 Capital goods Amount of activity: Amount of capital investment by all consolidated subsidiaries.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying the emissions unit corresponding to the amount of capital investment.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
    Category 3 Fuel-and-energy-related activities (not included in Scope 1 or 2) Amount of activity: Amount of purchased electricity and fuels.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying the emissions unit of each type and adding together the total.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment and CFP COMMUNICATION PROGRAM DB version1.01.
    Category 4 Upstream transportation and distribution Amount of activity: Amount of domestic and overseas shipment.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying the weight and transportation distance by the emissions unit of each transportation type and adding together the total.
    (Trucks: Specific fuel consumption using the improved ton/kilo method. Trains, ships and airplanes: CO2 emissions output level using the conventional ton/kilo method)
    Category 5 Waste generated in operations Amount of activity: Emissions of each type of waste.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying the emissions unit of each type and adding together the total.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
    Category 6 Business travel Amount of activity: Number of domestic and overseas employees.
    Unit: Emissions unit per employee.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
    Category 7 Employee commuting Amount of activity: Transportation expenses paid to employees.
    Unit: Calculated by estimating the train/car ratio from employee commuting style, multiplied by the emissions unit of the amount of transportation expenses for each style and adding together the total.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
    Category 8 Upstream leased assets Amount of activity: Domestic G-SHOCK stores, sales area for digital paintings and other and number of business days.
    Unit: Calculated by determining the total sales area, and multiplying the emissions unit of the sales area. The number of business days is calculated on a pro-rate basis.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
    Category 9 Downstream transportation and distribution Transportation to retailers from the distribution hubs of regular sales companies is outside the scope of Casio's expense payment. Since this is difficult to ascertain and the CO2 emissions are deemed to be fairly small compared to Category 4 upstream transportation and distribution, it is not included in calculations.
    Category 10 Processing of sold products Although one of our group companies provides name printing and other services, emissions of CO2 and other substances from this business activity is included in Scopes 1 and 2.
    Category 11 Use of sold products Amount of activity: Number of products by category.
    Unit: Use of products is calculated by multiplying the emissions unit of each product for the supported period (five years; seven years for timepieces).
    Regarding the use period, relevant industrial standards are followed. In cases when such an industrial standard does not exist, Casio defines the use period. Regarding electricity, CO2 emissions were calculated by applying the GHG Protocol, which is the international standard. (Factors were used for Japan, Europe, Asia, the UK, and North America.) Regarding products that require battery replacement, CO2 emissions related to manufacture of the battery are also included in the calculation. (The purchased cost for the manufacturer of each battery is used in the calculation.)

    Category 12 End of life treatment of sold products Amount of activity: Emissions from the product itself and container packaging materials.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying the emissions unit of each type and adding together the total.
    Emission factor database for calculating organizational GHG emissions throughout the supply chain version 2.5 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
    Category 13 Downstream leased assets Due to the disposal of relevant buildings, it is not subject to calculation from fiscal 2016.
    Category 14 Franchises The franchise formula is not used.
    Category 15 Investments Amount of activity: Emissions from equity method affiliates and companies which hold specific annual stocks and constructive stocks.
    Unit: Calculated by multiplying the emissions from investment destinations by the equity method ratio or the share holding ratio.
