The Sanyo Group's major environmental performance indexes are as follows.
In fiscal 2011, the total energy input for the worldwide manufacturing facilities was about 18.2 billion megajoules, with a ratio of 8:5 for manufacturing facilities in and outside Japan. The corresponding greenhouse gas emissions were about 0.95 million tons, including other types of greenhouse gases.
In fiscal 2011, the amount of waste generation, final disposal and NOx release significantly decreased, in particular at overseas manufacturing facilities partly due to a reduction in the number of facilities subject to data collection as a result of business transfer.

*1 This includes carbon dioxide (CO2) and five specified gases (methane, dinitrogen monoxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride).
*2 0.410 kg-CO2/kWh was used as the CO2 emission factor for purchased electricity. This figure is the FY2006 result released by the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan.
*3 The data cover 32 Japanese manufacturing facilities for FY2010 and 29 for FY2011.
*4 The CO2 emission factor used for purchased electricity is based on the CO2 emission factors in 2002 that were specified by country in the GHG Protocol (2005).
*5 The data cover 49 facilities for FY2010 and 40 for FY2011.
