  1. Supplemental information for the calculation of GHG emissions (Scope 1+2) for the Kirin Group is as follows.
    • Calculation Method
      • Emissions resulting from the use of fuel and steam are calculated the unit calorific values and emission factors stipulated in Japan's "Law Concerning the Promotion of the Measures to Cope with Global Warming" and "Law Concerning the Rational Use of Energy". However, for Lion, the unit calorific values and emission factors specified by the Australian, New Zealand, and U.S. governments are used for calculations.
      • For electricity, the calculation is based on the amount of electricity purchased multiplied by the emission factor of each electric power company. In the case of Japan, adjusted emission factors for each electric utility are used. If emission factors for each electric utility are not available, national emission factors published by the IEA are used.
      • GHG emissions include emissions associated with the generation of electricity sold.
    • Boundary
      • The following companies are targeted.(The companies are classified based on the business segments in the corresponding financial reporting year.)
