* Calculations are based on the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures.
CO2 emissions factors for domestic energy use are calculated according to base emissions factors until 2018, and according to adjusted emissions factors from 2019 onward.
CO2 emissions from overseas energy use are calculated according to the International Energy Agencyʼs CO2 emissions intensity data.
Figures for CO2 emissions show totals emitted by:
Nine companies in 2013‒2014; 11 companies in 2015‒2017; 12 companies in 2018; and 11 companies in 2019.
Revenues are for the entire Sapporo Group.

* The Sapporo Group is working toward its goal of reducing Group-wide CO2 emissions by 20% by 2030 compared to 2013 levels.
The eight major companies of the Sapporo Group as of 2013 are included in the scope, and reductions are managed based on the actual results of the same year.
