*1Numbers are rounded down to the nearest unit and the sum of the data of the Group Companies may not match the total (same as in the following tables). Data on Sagawa Express has undergone third-party validation by the Japan Management Association GHG Certification Center (JMACC).The validation report is shown on pages 26-27.

*2CO2 emissions by Sagawa Express in FY2019 were 369,433 tons (Scope 1+2). If carbon taxes in Japan are raised to the highest level in the world, a cost of 5,160 million yen (13,970 yen x 369,433 tons) will arise (Calculated based on the figures for Sweden which are the highest in the world at USD127 / t-CO2 and USD1=110 yen).

*4EXPOLANKA's FY2019 figures are provisional and the finalized figures will be disclosed at a later date.

*5Scope of "Other": For Scope1 and Scope2, domestic operating companies (excluding Sagawa Humony) are tallied from FY2015 to FY2016. SG Sagawa Ameroid was added to the total in 2017. Sagawa Humony was added to the total in 2018. Scope2 FY2019 includes SG Sagawa Vietnam (only 2 warehouses). Scope3 FY2019 includes four companies: World Supply, Sagawa Global Logistics, SG Reality and SG Motors.

Internal Carbon Price

Sagawa Express is implementing "environmental investment promotion measures" by utilizing the mechanism of internal carbon pricing, and is updating facilities to enable the reduction of greenhouse gases in Scope 2. (35,000 yen / ton-CO2 (FY2018 power charges / Scope 2 CO2 emissions)
