Numerical data and graphs

The numerical data provided in the report are obtained by rounding off digits smaller than the units indicated. Accordingly, the actual sums of the individual figures in the graphs and charts do not necessarily correspond to the total figures in the same graphs and charts.

Environmental performance data related to energy and CO2

Although the emission factors specified in-house had been used for target progress management until the FY2019 results, the data has been calculated based on the following calculation methods for FY2020 results and afterwards. At the same time, the data for the previous years have been revised.
