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 2018, which is similar to the previous fiscal year. Within Scope 3, purchased goods and services accounted for the greatest share, about 62%.。

Going forward, Casio will focus on the three themes below in relation to Scope 3 emissions.

  • Enhance accuracy in the calculation of each category
  • Draft and implement measures to reduce emissions in each Scope 3 category
  • Promote emissions reduction upstream and downstream in the value chain
