Performance Data

MC is working to reduce its environmental burden in its office workplaces.

In addition to reducing the amount of paper and electricity used, we are also promoting the recycling of waste materials.

The following is MC's environmental performance (as of March 31, 2018), which represents the results of those activities.

MC's Policy for Reducing GHG Emissions

MC adopted a policy which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per total assets by over 25% compared to year ended March 2017 levels by 2030.

Direct CO2 emissions from fuel consumption and emissions of GHGs from business activities other than CO2 from energy sources (Scope 1) and indirect CO2 emissions from electricity consumption etc. (Scope 2) on a consolidated basis during the fiscal year ended March 2018 totaled approximately 8.14 million tons*1 of CO2 equivalent.

*1 Scope 1 and 2 emissions are subject to MC's long-term GHG emissions reduction target. Emissions from projects with high communality, including power generation and heat generation (utility business), as well as joint operations (jointly managed projects) are included in the calculations for Scope 1 and 2. Furthermore, while emissions from franchises are generally not included in Scope 1 and 2 emissions, such emissions have been incorporated into Scope 1 and 2 in order to include them in the scope for GHG emissions reduction. The following metrics were adopted as the basis for calculating GHG emissions.

Direct CO2 emissions from fuel consumption
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol)
“Emission-Factors-from-Cross-Sector-Tools (Mar 2017)” (WRI/WBCSD)
Emissions of greenhouse gases from business activities other than CO2 from energy sources
GHG Emissions from fiscal year 2016: Greenhouse Gas Emission Calculation and Reporting Manual (Version 4.2) (July 2016, Ministry of the Environment and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry)
GHG Emissions before fiscal year 2015: Greenhouse Gas Emission Calculation and Reporting Manual (Version 3.4) (May 2013, Ministry of the Environment and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry)
Indirect CO2 emissions from electricity consumption, etc.
GHG Emissions from fiscal year 2016: IEA CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion (2016 edition), CO2 emissions per kWh from electricity generation of fiscal year 2014 GHG Emissions before fiscal year 2015: The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol)
