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. The CO2 equivalent conversion of energy source is based on the numerical measures adopted in-house for the management of progress toward target attainment, namely adjusted emissions coefficients indicated in “Emission Factors by Power Suppliers (for the calculation of GHG emissions by specified emitters) (FY 2008 results),” published by the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of the Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan.

To the Nanjing Plant, the coefficients indicated below are applied:

Up to FY 2017: Ministerial Guidelines for GHG Emissions Accounting and Reporting (Climate Change Agency of the Chinese National Development and Reform Committee)(2005 results)

Since FY 2018: International Energy Agency (IEA) Emissions Factors (2016 results)

Reporting guidelines

The Environmental Reporting Guidelines of the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (edition 2018) are used as a reference.
