Calculation Standards

1.Overall

(1) Items with no input, usage, handling or discharge performance have been left blank.
(2) Figures are rounded off to the second decimal point, in the specified units (figures shown as “0.0” are less than “0.05”).
(3) When total Casio Group values for VOC inputs/emissions and PRTR are 1 ton or more, data is shown separately for the individual site.

2. Inputs

(1) Energy input amount

  • All fossil fuels and power used in business activities are totaled for sites indicated in the Scope of Data.
  • Includes fuel usage by company vehicles, but does not include energy used for contracted logistics services, commuting, and business trips.
  • Crude oil equivalent is calculated in accordance with Japan’s Act on the Rational Use of Energy.

(2) Water resource input amount

  • Usage amounts of tap water, industrial water and groundwater are combined.
  • Sites for which it is difficult to monitor water usage due, for example, to an office lease agreement, are not included in the scope of calculation.

(3) Paper usage amount

  • Managed and tabulated based on the purchased amounts of paper used in printers, fax machines, and copy machines each year.
  • The weight of one sheet is determined for each paper size, and weights are calculated based on the amounts purchased.

(4) PRTR substance input amount

  • Calculated for chemical substances subject to Japan's PRTR Act whose annual amount handled per substance is 0.05 tons or more at each site.
  • Calculated for VOC inputs subject to a follow-up survey of achievements related to the four electrical and electronic industry associations’ control of VOC emissions whose annual amount handled is 0.05 tons or more at each site.

3. Outputs

(1) CO₂ emissions

  • To calculate CO₂ emissions from the use of fuel, coefficients were used based on unit calorific values by fuel type and emission factors related to the use of fuel, as stipulated by Japan’s Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures.
  • CO₂ conversion coefficients for electricity were applied as follows.

*2 Emission factors after adjustment for each electric power company as stipulated by Japan’s Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures

 

(2) Wastewater

  • Calculated from amounts at sites that measure wastewater amounts. Sites that do not measure wastewater amounts but can ascertain tap water use treat the amount of tap water used as their wastewater amount.
  • At sites with special facilities that fall under the Water Pollution Prevention Act and/or the Sewer Act, water quality surveys are conducted based on applicable laws, and confirmation is made that emissions are below regulatory limits. Since fiscal 2014, the applicable facilities have not been operating.
  • In the case of discharge into public sewer systems, figures are shown if voluntary measurements are taken.

(3) Air pollutants

  • Calculated at sites that have smoke generating facilities based on the concentration measurements and gas emissions at each facility.
  • Yamagata Casio, Hamura R&D Center, Casio (Thailand) Co., Ltd., and Casio Electronics (Shaoguan) are included in tabulation of results.
  • Concentrations of dust emissions, NOx, and SOx, which must be managed by law, are measured at target sites, to confirm that they are below regulation levels.
  • The following substances are not used at any Casio site: dichloromethane, trichlorethylene, tetrachlorethylene, chloroform, vinyl chloride monomer, 1,3-butadiene, benzene, acrylonitrile, 1,2-dichloroethane, formaldehyde, trinickel disulfide, nickel nitrate, and acetaldehyde.

(4) PRTR

  • Release and transfer quantities are calculated for each chemical substance subject to Japan's PRTR Act whose annual usage is 0.05 tons or more at each site.
  • Calculated for VOC outputs to air subject to a follow-up survey of achievements related to the four electrical and electronic industry associations’ control of VOC emissions whose annual amount handled is 0.05 tons or more at each site.

(5) Waste

  • Waste is tabulated as the total amount of industrial waste generated when product is transferred from a Casio site to the processor, general waste derived from sites, and the quantity of valuables.
  • Sites for which it is difficult to monitor waste generation due, for example, to an office lease agreement, are not included in the scope of calculation.

(6) Base year figures

  • For the evaluation of greenhouse gases and energy conservation, emissions and usage of divested businesses are excluded from data in and after the base year in accordance with the GHG Protocol.
  • For sites that were included in the scope in and after the base year due to acquisition, etc., historical data on emissions and use is only added to historical data for fiscal years in and after the base year when it is available in accordance with the GHG Protocol, which is the international standard.

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 3.1 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment and LCI database IDEA version 2.1.3.
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 3.1 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.

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: Electricity used by those products that produce electricity consumption, out of products sold by Casio Computer Co., Ltd. in that year.
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 country-specific IEA emission factors, the international standard. (In the case of countries for which factors are not available, the global average factor was used.)
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 3.1 issued by Japan’s Ministry of Environment.
