Reporting Period

As a general rule, this Report covers the activities of facilities in Japan from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018, and the activities of overseas facilities from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. (Certain sections of this Report contain details of activities and initiatives both prior to and after these identified reporting periods.)

 

Reporting Coverage

This report covers the following companies, including head office functions, plants, research functions, and sales affiliates. Moreover, the report also covers the activities of Astellas subsidiaries that are included in these companies.

 

Japan  ■ Astellas Pharma Inc.
 ■ Astellas Pharma Tech Co., Ltd.
Americas  ■ Astellas US LLC
 ■ Agensys, Inc.
 ■ Astellas Research Institute of America LLC

Methods for Calculating Energy Consumption and GHGs

Type

Conversion Coefficients
Calorific value COemissions
Electricity 9.97 GJ/MWh --※1 tons/MWh
Kerosene 36.7 GJ/kiloliter 2.49 tons/kiloliter
LPG 50.8 GJ/ton 3.00 tons/ton
LNG 54.6 GJ/ton 2.70 tons/ton
City gas 45.0 GJ/thousand m³N 2.24 tons/thousand m³N
Diesel oil 37.7 GJ/kiloliter 2.58 tons/kiloliter
Gasoline 34.6 GJ/kiloliter 2.32 tons/kiloliter
Purchased thermal energy 1.36 GJ/GJ 0.057 tons/GJ
Steam 2.8GJ /ton 0.091 ton/GJ

*1 To calculate the CO2 emissions resulting from electricity usage, Astellas uses CO2 emission coefficients provided by the electric power companies that supply each business facility. In the case of Japan, we use the most recent emission coefficient of each electric power company announced by the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. In other regions where individual coefficients cannot be obtained, we use the latest country-specific coefficients provided in the International Energy Agency (IEA).
*2 In converting the amount of power generated by renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics and wind into energy value in Joule, we have used a conversion rate of 3.6 MJ per 1 kWh.

Calculation Method for Scope 3 Emissions

Categories Basis for calculation and calculation method Emission source unit
1 Purchased goods and services

Based on: Purchase price (¥ million)

Purchase monetary amount of raw material x emission source unit of each raw material

Target: Production bases in Japan 
Emission source unit:
・Source: The Ministry of the Environment's database*[5]; emission source units based on the industry-related table
Emission source unit on monetary basis for each raw material (purchaser price basis)
2 Capital goods

Based on: Capital expenditures (¥ million)

Facility investment amount (consolidated) x emission source unit per price of capital goods

Target: Global
Emission sourced unit:
・Source: The Ministry of the Environment's database*[6]; emission source units per price of capital goods (Secretariat)
Pharmaceuticals 2.83 t-CO2 equivalent / million yen
3 Fuel and energy related activities (not included in Scope 1 and Scope 2)

Based on: Consumption of each type of energy (GJ)

Usage amount of purchased fuel, electricity, heat, etc. x emission source units per usage amount for each energy type

Target: Global
Emission source unit:
・Source: The Ministry of the Environment's database*[7]; emission source units per usage amount of electricity and heat (Secretariat)
