Environmental Impact Results in Fiscal 2017
Environmental Targets and Results in Fiscal 2017
During the fiscal year of 2017, Shiseido achieved our targeted reduction of CO2 emissions in all sections.
Our corporate efforts at our facilities in Japan included the consolidation and closure of offices and energy-saving activities, resulting in the successful reduction of CO2 emissions that compensated for the CO2 emissions generated by the electricity purchased.
Targets were achieved at our production facilities outside of Japan through the utilization of renewable energy, such as solar energy generated by power facilities in the U.S.
We continuously promote the use of Aqua Premium, a hydroelectric generation system provided by TEPCO Energy Partner, Incorporated, at our factories in Japan, while encouraging the use of renewable energy at sites outside Japan as we aim to meet our 2020 target.
CO2 Emission Reduction Targets in Fiscal 2017
|Scope||Fiscal 2017 Target||Fiscal 2017 Results|
|Japan||Production facilities||18% reduction compared to Fiscal 2009 (Absolute amount)||Reduced CO2 by 19% (Achieved)|
|Non-Production facilities||10% reduction compared to Fiscal 2009 (Absolute amount)||Reduced CO2 by 28% (Achieved)|
|Overseas||Production facilities||22% reduction compared to BAU *1||Reduced CO2 by 39% (Achieved)|
|Non-Production facilities||8% reduction compared to Fiscal 2009 (Absolute amount) *2||Reduced CO2 by 14% (Achieved)|
Environmental Impacts Throughout the Value Chain in Fiscal 2017
In order to effectively reduce CO2, Shiseido measured the environmental impact throughout the value chain and reduced CO2 emissions throughout the value chain based on the "GHG Protocol Scope 3 Standard".
In terms of the emission reduction effect through refill product lineup and other initiatives in 2017, we were able to reduce a total of approximately 44,000 tons of CO2 emissions, including approximately 6,400 tons in raw material procurement, approximately 33,000 tons in product usage and approximately 4,500 tons in the product disposal phase.
Among the CO2 emission categories of Scope 3, Shiseido is certified by SGS Japan Inc., a third-party certification provider, for the most relevant categories 1, 4, 5, 11, and 12 to secure the transparency and adequacy of our evaluation. We will disclose the 2017 result as soon as the verification is completed, by posting a copy of our SGS Verification Statement on this website.
