We are working to reduce our CO2 emissions in line with the “Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)*1” framework and contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society through our business activities. Our long-term reduction targets for CO2 emissions from business activities (Scope 1*2+Scope 2*3) and from the use of sold products (Scope 3 Category 11) have been recognized as Science Based Targets (SBT), and our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions include those emissions produced within the supply chain as well.

● Scope 1 and Scope 2 Target
  Reduce CO2 emissions from business activities by 30% by 2030
  compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019
  Target: 35.4 thousand metric tons CO2e (Results for the fiscal year
  ended March 31, 2022:44.7 thousand metric tons CO2e;reduction of
  12% compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019)
● Scope 3 Target
  Reduce CO2 emissions from the use of sold products by 20% by 2030
  compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019
  Target: 2,082 thousand metric tons CO2e (Results for the fiscal year
  ended March 31, 2022:2,586 thousand metric tons CO2e; reduction of
  1% compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019)

Towards Achievement of SBT

Science Based Targets

We are working towards achievement of our SBT for Scope 1 and Scope 2 by improving the energy efficiency of the infrastructure at our business operating sites and by promoting the use of renewable energy; while, for Scope 3, we are improving the energy efficiency of our products by developing products which are “super-green.”

*1 An international initiative to prevent global warming by setting CO2 reduction targets that are based on scientifically sound principles.
*2 Direct greenhouse gas emissions from sources owned or controlled by the reporting company (fuel combustion, industrial processes, etc.)
*3 Indirect greenhouse gas emissions from consumption of electricity, heat, or steam purchased from other companies.

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 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.

Reducing CO2 Emissions through Shared Delivery of Procured Parts

In order to reduce CO2 emissions associated with the manufacturing process, SPE is introducing shared delivery service*4 and production unit service*5 to enhance logistical efficiency. Results for CO2 reductions for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 show that, compared with the traditional, independent delivery system, the shared delivery service reduced CO2 emissions by approximately 45 metric tons (a 17% reduction), while the production unit service reduced emissions by approximately 177 metric tons (a reduction of 40%), achieving a combined total of 222 metric tons of CO2 reduction.

Before improvement After improvement (current)

*4 Shared delivery of components from multiple suppliers in the same industry
*5 SCREEN managed trucks are used to perform delivery of large units which had previously been delivered separately by each company’s own trucks or vehicles

Verification of CO2 emissions

We undergo third-party verification of facility CO2 emissions (Scope 1+2) and third-party verification of CO2 emissions from the use of our sold products (Scope 3 Category 11).
