Data criteria
  • All sums are rounded off to the nearest 1,000 yen.
  • All costs (excluding R&D) that are prorated as environmental activities out of all labor expenditures at environment-dedicated divisions and labor expenditures at other divisions are aggregated into management activities costs. Labor costs that may also be applicable to the following costs are also included.
    1. Pollution control costs
    2. Recycling costs
    3. Communal activities costs
  •      R&D costs are posted as total amounts without prorating the portion related to environmental activities.

Note:      Only amounts that can be clearly computed are included in the cost reductions for the economic effects resulting from environmental protection measures.
