An overall picture of the amount of resource (energy, resources, etc.) inputs for business activities in fiscal 2021 and their resulting environmental impacts (greenhouse gases, waste, etc.) are shown below.
Scope: Hitachi Global Life Solutions Group sites. However, for inputs of raw materials and chemical, and emissions/transfers of chemicals, the scope is manufacturing sites of Hitachi Global Life Solutions.
*1 The total may vary from sums of items due to rounding.
*2 Amounts of raw material inputs are the amounts of raw materials and materials purchased from external suppliers. Parts, semi-finished products and finished products are not included.
*3 “Plastics” includes recycled plastics and packaging materials. “Other materials” includes containers and packaging materials.
*4 For sites unable to determine amounts of water resource inputs and valuable waste generated, estimates are based on data from sites able to determine them.
*5 Total of Scope 1 and Scope 2. No emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O, PFC, SF6, or NF3 of a non-energy origin, based on the Law Concerning the Promotion of the Measures to Cope with Global Warming.
*6 CO2 emission equivalent
*7 Gas and fuel conversion factors are based on the “Table of Calculation Methods and Emissions Factors in the Calculation, Reporting and Publication System,” compiled by the Ministry of the Environment.
*8 CO2 emissions are the sum of Scope 1 and Scope 2 resulting from the use of energy. Emissions from renewable energies are assumed to be zero.
*9 CO2emissions from electricity use are calculated based on market standards. Electricity CO2 emissions coefficients are based on the adjusted emission coefficient for each electric power utility, as per the Law Concerning the Promotion of the Measures to Cope with Global Warming.
*10 For sites where wastewater discharge cannot be determined, the amount of water input is used as the wastewater discharge.
