*The tally is for Sagawa Express. The environmental conservation effect is calculated as the net change compared to FY2019.

*1Figures for natural gas and city gas were tallied using the figures written on invoices from suppliers without making temperature or pressure corrections. Biogas excluded.

*2The figures written on invoices from suppliers (m³) were converted into weight at 2.07kg/m³.

*3Including high octane

*4The effect believed to have contributed to the recycling of PET bottles by using uniforms made from recycled PET bottles is converted into the number of PET bottles. (Value for conversion: Total weight approx. 175g for short sleeves and approx. 240g for long sleeves) x number of uniforms x amount of polyester used (cotton material 65% / sweat absorption material 100%) x1 (100% recycling rate of polyester used) ÷ 30 (30g per 500 ml PET bottle)

Tallying method

  • Guideline used as a reference: Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005 Edition, Ministry of the Environment
  • Acquisitions of assets valued at 200,000 yen or more are recorded as investments.
  • Environmental facilities are depreciated over four years by the straight-line method.
  • Personnel expenses are calculated based on the number of hours of environmental activities x the average personnel expenses of Sagawa Express.
