Percentage (%)
  1. (1) Total water withdrawn: 227,052 thousand tons
    Of which, percentage of water withdrawn in regions with High Baseline Water Stress: 1.5%
    Of which, percentage of water withdrawn in regions with Extremely High Baseline Water Stress: 2.0%
  2. (2) Total water consumed: 32,669 thousand tons
    Of which, percentage of water consumed in regions with High or Extremely High Baseline Water Stress: 1.3%
    Of which, percentage of water consumed in regions with Extremely High Baseline Water Stress: 6.8%

Note: Total water consumed is calculated by subtracting water discharged from water withdrawn.

Water stress is surveyed for Toray Group’s each 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 The amount of water withdrawn and the amount of water consumed by business sites located in regions with High or Extremely High Baseline Water Stress are summed up, respectively, yielding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.
