*For fuels, the data are based on “calorific values by fuel type” and “emission factors for fuel use” as specified in the Law Concerning the Promotion of Measures to Cope with Global Warming.
*For electricity, the data are based on “emission factors by electric utility” as specified in the Law Concerning the Promotion of Measures to Cope with Global Warming.
*For hot and cold water, the data are based on emission factors provided by suppliers.
*From FY 2020, tenants, stores, warehouses, company vehicles, etc. will be added to the scope of calculations.
*For stores, warehouses, etc., where the amount of electricity used cannot be specified, the amount has been estimated based on the floor area.
