CO2 Emission Rates during the Product Life Cycle

Over 95% of CO2 emissions is generated by customer use of our products during the life cycle.

In Green Value 21 Phase IV, we are implementing wide range measures toward our long-term goal of reducing CO2 emission intensity (emissions per unit of sales) by 20% in total value chain (as Scope1+2+3) by fiscal 2026 compared with fiscal 2014.

Reducing CO2 Emissions from Business Activities

Total CO2 emissions of the SCREEN Group was 54,776 t-CO2 in the year ended March 2018. We have achieved our Green Value 21 Phase IV annual target of reducing emissions per unit weight of product shipment by 6% compared with the fiscal year ended March 2014.

Reducing CO2 Emissions from Logistics Operations

Nearly 80% of net sales is occupied by overseas sales and many products are assembled on the global customer sites. Accordingly, we are taking key steps to reduce CO2 emissions by transport. The SCREEN Group is also proactively working to achieve a modal shift during shipment, by changing from trucks to marine vessels. We have been authorized to use the Eco-ship Modal Shift mark since 2011.

Specialized transport operator, SCREEN Logistics Co., Ltd. provides highly efficient logistics services to SCREEN Group members. SCREEN Logistics Co., Ltd. is also contributing to address emerging management issues related to the global environment, including the reduction of environmental burden and costs.

Reducing CO2 Emissions from Customer Use

We have adopted 4 goals to deliver the products considering safety and the global environment. These include efforts to provide products that curb CO2 emissions, expand environmentally friendly products, train experts in product safety, and comply with product-related laws and regulations.

CO2 emissions from our products shipped in the year ended March 2018 are estimated at 2.31 million t-CO2 for 10 years, which is a 16% improvement in terms of emission intensity compared with the year ended March 2014. By replacing conventional products with “Green Products”, CO2 emissions decreased by an estimated 53,600 t-CO2.

Reducing CO2 Emissions from the Supply Chain

The SCREEN Group promotes various kinds of activities for reducing CO2 emissions to mitigate and adapt to climate change across the entire supply chain. For example, we hold the briefing meetings with our business partners to show the purchase policy and future direction periodically. We also collaborate with the partners to reduce emissions based on the SCREEN supplier code of conduct. These efforts have produced positive and encouraging results.
