Introduction of T-ReCS for effective environmental data management

In 2010, the Takasago Group introduced T-ReCS (Takasago Responsible Care System), an environmental management information system designed to gather together various environmental data from our business locations around the globe for central management.

The Takasago Group pursuing CO2 emission reduction coupled with the activities aimed at contributing to global warming prevention. In order to reduce the usage of the power generated with exhaustible energy resources, we actively promote the conversion to the power generated with renewable energy.

■Electricity consumption and CO2 emissions

Calculating Scope3

Calculation of Scope3 of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission in the supply chain was started in 2012 based on the "Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard."

In FY2016, Scope 3 GHG Emissions accounted for almost all of our GHG Emissions (95.0%). Further, most Scope 3 emissions resulted from Category 4: Upstream transportation and distribution (see table). Accordingly, we are now looking into alternative modes of transportation in order to reduce emissions.
