not included in Scope 1 or 2
t-CO2 Kyocera Group 163,575 161,453 181,407 130,086 141,631
The calculation is made by multiplying the amount of fuel and energy used by the basic guidelines for calculating greenhouse gas emissions through the supply chain.
Category 4: Upstream transportation and distribution t-CO2 Kyocera Group 48,376 45,927 127,943 97,756 145,082
Calculated in accordance with the Joint Guidelines for Calculating CO2 Emissions in the Logistics Sector (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism). In addition, upstream emissions of transportation fuels are additionally calculated from FY2019.
Category 5: Waste generated in operations t-CO2 Kyocera Group 11,345 17,423 7,403 5,891 19,132
The calculation is based on the emissions per unit of waste disposal method by waste type and emissions from waste transportation in the "Basic Guidelines for Calculating Greenhouse Gas Emissions through the Supply Chain".
Category 6: Business travel t-CO2 Kyocera Group 9,120 9,993 9,946 1,010 1,020

Starting with FY 2020 figures, the scenario settings have been changed and recalculated using the transport ton-kilometer method. In addition, upstream emissions of transportation fuels are additionally calculated from FY2020.
Category 10: Processing of sold products t-CO2 Kyocera Group Printers, cell phones, and power tools are finished products and are not processed. Electronic components are installed in the final product at the customer's company, but there is no significant processing of the electronic components themselves.
Category 11: Use of sold products t-CO2 Kyocera Group 583,503 609,252 633,867 420,751 175,791
Calculated based on power consumption, product life, and unit sales of consumer products. The calculation is not performed because it is difficult to make a reasonable calculation due to the wide variety of electronic components, as well as differences in products, sizes, product life, etc., that use electronic components.
Category 12: End-of-life treatment of sold products t-CO2 Kyocera Group 10,312 9,174 12,259 10,284 19,134
The amount of emissions from consumer products and packaging materials is calculated based on the "Basic Guidelines for Calculating Greenhouse Gas Emissions through the Supply Chain," using emissions per unit of waste by type and treatment method, as well as emissions from waste transportation. The calculation is not performed for electronic components, as they are diverse in size and difficult to calculate rationally. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Category 13: Downstream leased assets t-CO2 Kyocera Group GHG emissions from tenants renting from affiliated companies are recorded in Scope 1 and 2.
Category 14: Franchising t-CO2 Kyocera Group Not included in the table as Kyocera does not have any franchise locations.
Category 15: Investments t-CO2 Kyocera Group 423,183 283,177 282,774
From FY2020, GHG emissions of companies whose shares are acquired are accounted for as a percentage of the GHG emissions of the acquired companies.
