Environmental Performance Data Scope 3: Calculation results
(Fiscal Year 2014)
With the increasing severity of the global climate change problem, corporations have been asked to understand not only the quantity of their own greenhouse gas emissions but also the quantity of emissions along their entire supply chain. In response, DISCO started a plan to measure the amount of greenhouse gas emissions from all of the activities that DISCO is associated with.
In FY2014, in accordance with guidelines from the Ministry of the Environment*, we calculated the amount of greenhouse gas emissions for our supply chain (Scope 3) in addition to the emissions for DISCO’s corporate activities (Scope 1 & 2) for all bases of operation within Japan.
Our investigation found that DISCO’s entire supply chain generates roughly 1,077,000 tons of CO2 emissions (Scope 3). The largest proportion of our emissions comes from the “Use of sold goods”, which makes up approximately 73% of our total emissions. The next largest proportion comes from “Purchased goods and services”, which makes up approximately 19%.
In the future, we will look to using the results of this investigation to share information with related stakeholders and to promote the planning and development of the new energy saving products, in order to push towards a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions across our entire supply chain.
