As an energy company, Tokyo Gas Group recognizes its duty to prioritize action to prevent global warming. We have therefore established Guidelines for Global Warming Countermeasures that set concrete numerical targets, and are working as a group to put them into practice. As CO2 emissions from LNG value chains are highest at the city gas consumption stage, i.e., customers' sites, we place a strong focus on curbing emissions at this point and are pursuing a variety of strategies to achieve this, including the development and adoption of low-carbon systems. In the electric power segment of our business activities (see diagram below) we are taking active steps to generate power using highefficiency thermal power plants, and generate and procure more power produced using renewable energy. We are also monitoring the impact on global warming of our raw material procurement activities, and are working with group companies to deploy high-efficiency LNG carriers to reduce emissions from transportation by sea.
Looking ahead, we will contribute further to the fight against global warming by rolling out our CO2 emission reduction technologies to other countries and other means in order to meet social needs and expectations in the wake of COP21.
- ✽1, 2Calculated based on emission intensity analyzed following the LCA (life-cycle assessment)
Standards for calculation and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions:
Scope 1: Business's own direct emissions of greenhouse gases.
Scope 2: Indirect emissions from consumption of electricity, heat, and steam supplied by others.
Scope 3: Indirect emissions other than covered in Scope 1 and 2 (emissions by other parties involved with business's activities).
