Looking at the composition of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with our group’s operations, emissions arising
from the consumption of our products (Scope 3) far exceed emissions from our refineries, complexes, and plants
(Scope 1) and emissions mainly attributable to purchased energy (Scope 2). Scope 3 emissions constitute the overwhelming
majority of our emissions. This is why we prioritize reducing GHG emissions across value chains. Accordingly,
our reduction efforts not only aim to curb Scope 1 and 2 emissions, but also target Scope 3 emissions. In doing so, we
are placing the utmost priority on reducing CO₂ emissions, which account for more than 90% of Japan’s GHG emissions.
Value chains related to Idemitsu Group operations are diverse. Therefore, we are better placed to help reduce CO₂
emissions from the value chain in a range of areas. Looking ahead, we will strengthen our efforts in these areas and
contribute to a reduction in CO₂ emissions.
