Fiscal 2017 Goals and Results and Fiscal 2018 Environmental Activity Plan

We achieved our goals in mitigating global warming, reducing the volume of construction by-products, and pursuing environmentally friendly design in fiscal 2018. However, we did not achieve our goals in protecting biodiversity.

Notes:The boundary up to FY2017 was domestic only, and it was changed to consolidated domestic and overseas from FY2018.
Notes:Since the boundary was changed in FY2018, the “Result” column was changed to “N.A.”. In addition, regarding “own office + warehouse / factory”, only the company office was counted up to the target value for FY2018, and the actual value for FY2018 was added to the scope of calculation.

Notes:The scope of aggregation has been changed to domestic non-consolidated until FY2017 and consolidated domestic and overseas from FY2018. Domestic and overseas consolidated refers to non-consolidated and consolidated subsidiaries. Domestic parentheses in parentheses include domestic non-consolidated and domestic consolidated subsidiaries.
Notes:Since the boundary was changed in FY2018, the “Result” column was changed to “N.A.”. Construction waste is managed by reducing the basic unit (amount generated from construction work / total floor area) and the final disposal rate (ratio of waste not reused), not the amount generated.
