CO2 Emissions Throughout the Entire Value Chain

CO2 Emissions Throughout the Entire Value Chain

Casio has identified and calculated greenhouse gas emissions produced by its own business activities (Scope 1 and Scope 2) and emissions located upstream and downstream in the overall value chain (Scope 3). Casio has calculated CO2 emissions for 11 out of 15 categories of Scope 3 CO2 emissions, excluding four categories with little impact, with reference to the GHG Protocol, which is the international standard. Scope 3 emissions accounted for approximately 95% of all emissions in fiscal 2019, which is similar to the previous fiscal year. Within Scope 3, purchased goods and services accounted for the greatest share, about 60%.

Going forward, Casio will promote efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the entire value chain with a particular focus on encouraging major suppliers to set targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions with regard to CO2 emissions related to purchased goods and services.

  • Scope 2
    Location-based CO2 emissions were calculated using the CO2 emission factor given in the Calculation Standards. Market-based CO2 emissions, on the other hand, were calculated using the CO2 emission factor for each electric utility in the List of Emission Factors by Electric Utility under Japan’s Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures, in the case of emissions in Japan, and the same CO2 emission factor as location-based calculations for other countries.
