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 2020, which is similar to the previous fiscal year. Within Scope 3, purchased goods and services accounted for the greatest share, about 63%.

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. To calculate the market-based CO2 emissions for sites in Japan, the adjusted CO2 emission factor for each electric utility was used. This is the emission factor for each electric power company as stipulated in Japan’s Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures. For calculation of emissions from sites outside Japan, please refer to the Calculation Standards.
