Calculation conditions

  1. Business operations included in totals: ISO certified operations (Sanjo Works, Murasakino Works, Technology Research Laboratory, Hadano Works, Atsugi Works, Seta Works, branch office of Tokyo, Kansai, Tsukuba and Kyusyu.)
  2. Period covered: April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014
  3. Results: Results indicate the extent of environmental load reductions, and expenses saved through environmental conservation activities. Values are limited to items with a basis for calculation, and use the year prior to the start of preparations for ISO certification (Sanjo Works: 1995, Hadano Works: 1997, Technology Research Laboratory: 1998, Seta Works: 2000, Atsugi Works: 2002, Murasakino Works: 2008) as the basis for comparison. (Depending on the contract method used, energy conserved and power rates do not necessarily match.)
  4. Expenses related to education, conferences, and social activities: Calculated by multiplying the total number of man-hours expended by personnel involved in these activities by an hourly labor cost of 5,000 yen.
