The domestic plants and research laboratories of Kyowa Hakko Kirin, KyowaMedex, Kyowa Hakko Bio and Kyowa Pharma Chemical are covered. The overseas plants of Kyowa Hakko Kirin China Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., BioKyowa Inc. (U.S.A.), Shanghai Kyowa Amino Acid Co., Ltd., and Thai Kyowa Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. are also covered.

The domestic plants and research laboratories of Kyowa Hakko Kirin, KyowaMedex(excluding category1,4), Kyowa Hakko Bio and Kyowa Pharma Chemical are covered. The overseas plants of BioKyowa Inc. (U.S.A.)(excluding category9), Shanghai Kyowa Amino Acid Co., Ltd.(excluding category 4 in 2014 and 2015) are also covered. We have disclosed global data.
*4
We have disclosed Category5 data from FY2016.
*5
Data has been revised as a result of scope change or data review.
*6
FY2014 and FY2015 data include emission from waste transport . Data has been revised as a result of data review.
*7
In 2015, the target of zero emissions (the final disposal volume of up to 0.1 percent of waste emission volume) was not achieved, as the final disposal volume increased by about 170 tons because of the malfunction of the volume reduction facilities of the disposal contractor. We have reviewed the method of disposal and decreased final disposal volume from the following year.
