  1. 1 Toray greenhouse gas emissions have obtained a third-party guarantee from Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance Limited (LRQA).
  2. 2 CO2-equivalent emissions are calculated from the conversion factor for each gas.
  3. 3 CO2 is aggregated for group companies outside Japan.
  4. 4 Data corresponding to “industrial waste subject to special control,” as defined in Japan’s Waste Disposal and Public Cleansing Act, is recorded as hazardous waste generated.
