- Calculations conform to the Environmental Accounting Guidelines (2005 edition) published by the Ministry of the Environment.
- Depreciation of investments is included in cost.
- For costs spanning more than one category, only the costs related to environmental protection were included.
- In cases where environmental protection costs cannot be clearly separated, a proportional calculation was made using the “environmental ratio” considering the degree of reference to the environmental protection efforts.
- R&D costs include the costs of efforts to develop eco-friendly products and use alternative materials.
- Personnel expenses were calculated by man-hours and average wages.
Economic effects of environmental protection measures
The economic effects of environmental protection measures amounted to 256 million yen, mainly from cogeneration, fuel switch, energy-saving activities and profits from recycling and the sale of waste.
(Unit: million yen)
|Ⅰ. Cost reduction through energy saving||Cogeneration||207||177|
|Ⅱ. Profits from recycling and sale of waste||Recycling and sale of waste materials||15||11|
