Percentage (%)

Gross global Scope 1 emissions: 2.81 million tons-CO21

Percentage subject to emissions limits : 72%2

Notes:

  1. 1 CO2-equivalent emissions for six gases (CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs, SF6) are calculated according to conversion factors for each gas. There are no NF3 emissions. Data is compiled for Toray Industries, Inc. and its group companies in and outside Japan. Only CO2 emissions are calculated for group companies outside Japan. See the following page for a breakdown of figures for each category.

Environmental Impact Overview

  1. 2 The numerator is the sum of the Group’s emissions in the regions listed in the World Bank’s Carbon Pricing Dashboard as having a carbon tax and/or emissions trading scheme (ETS) in place as of 2020; specifically, Japan, the Republic of Korea, European countries, Mexico, U.S. (California, Rhode Island, and Virginia) and China (Guangdong Province, Beijing, and Shanghai).

Percentage (%)
  1. (1) Total water withdrawn: 214,174 thousand tons
    Of which, percentage of water withdrawn in regions with High Baseline Water Stress: 0.6%
    Of which, percentage of water withdrawn in regions with Extremely High Baseline Water Stress: 0.7%
  2. (2) Total water consumed: 32,224 thousand tons
    Of which, percentage of water consumed in regions with High or Extremely High Baseline Water Stress: 0.3%
    Of which, percentage of water consumed in regions with Extremely High Baseline Water Stress: 2.9%

Note: Total water consumed is calculated by subtracting water discharged from water withdrawn.

Water stress is surveyed for each Toray Group business site based on the World Resources Institute’s Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas. The amount of water withdrawn and the amount of water consumed by business sites located in regions with High or Extremely High Baseline Water Stress are summed up, respectively, yielding the percentages shown above.

  1. 1 PSIC is defined as the total annual count of all incidents that meet the definition of a Tier 1 Process Safety Incidents (PSI) per ANSI/API RP 754.
  2. 2 PSTIR is calculated as the total number of PSI multiplied by 200,000 and divided by the total annual hours worked by employees, contractors, and subcontractors.
  3. 3 PSISR is calculated as the Total Severity Score for all Process Safety Incidents multiplied by 200,000 and divided by the total annual hours worked by employees, contractors, and subcontractors.
