Activities for Grasping and Managing the Supply Chain

In recent years, companies are required to further disclose information related to climate change and resource issues, toward creating a sustainable society. In calculating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that have significant effects on climate change, in addition to Scope 1 (direct emissions) and Scope 2 (energy-originated indirect emission), more and more companies are calculating and reporting GHG emissions for the overall corporate activities (Scope 3) such as resource procurement, production, logistics, sales, and disposal, as well as capital goods, business travel, and commuting. Marubeni is voluntarily disclosing a part of the data by categorizing its supply chain activities and calculating the GHG emissions in each category in line with the GHG Protocol guidelines. The Scope 3 data is also submitted to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) climate change questionnaire.
