Eco-Efficiency

Calculation formula for Eco-Efficiency : Eco-Efficiency = Sales / Environmental impact(Environmental index)

・Greenhouse gas index = Total greenhouse gas emissions from sites + Total CO2 emissions from product use + Total CO2 emissions from logistics - Greenhouse gas emissions offset by greenhouse gas reduction activities(CO2 offset by contribution of renewable energy)

・Resource index = Waste landfilled from sites + Product resource input - Volume of reused / recycled materials - Volume of resources recovered from end-of-life products
