  1. 8. Until 2019, the boundary of calculation was only transportation from distribution centers to wholesaler warehouses. Since the accounting procedures of category 4 have been established since 2020, the boundary of calculation has been extended to transportation from distribution centers to domestic airports and from domestic airports to overseas airports. As the result of this change, scope 3 category 4 emissions in 2020 increased 4,495 tons compared to the calculation value before the change.

(Fuel consumption per ton-kilometer of truck transport is calculated by using the average loading rate of 10-ton freight truck for commercial use.)
Until 2019, the boundary of calculation was only transportation from distribution centers to wholesaler warehouses. Since the accounting procedures of category 4 have been established since 2020, the boundary of calculation has been extended to transportation from distribution centers to domestic airports and from domestic airports to overseas airports. As the result of this change, scope 3 category 4 emissions in 2020 increased 4,495 tons compared to the calculation value before the change.

Industrial waste generation

Environmental performance indicator Unit Calculation method
Generated Tons Total industrial waste generation at sites and facilities
Disposed Tons Total industrial waste incinerated without recycling which was outsourced to external contractors for processing
Landfilled Tons Total waste landfilled after incineration
Recycled Tons Total industrial waste recycled which was outsourced to external contractors for processing
Hazardous Waste Tons Total discharges of specially controlled industrial waste as prescribed by the Waste Management and Public Cleansing Act of Japan.

Air pollutants emissions

<The boundary of calculation>
Domestic Research Laboratories: CHUGAI PHARMACEUTICAL CO., LTD. Ukima Research Laboratories (Ukima site), Fuji Gotemba Research Laboratories, Kamakura Research Laboratories
Domestic Plants: Chugai Pharma Manufacturing Co., Ltd.(CPMC) Ukima Plant(Ukima site),Fujieda Plant, Utsunomiya Plant

Environmental performance indicator Unit Calculation method
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions kg Covers facilities generating soot/smoke for which NOx concentrations in exhaust gasses are measured in accordance with laws and regulations, etc.
NOx emissions = concentration of NOx in exhaust gasses × annual exhaust gasses
Sulfur oxides (SOx) emissions kg Covers facilities generating soot/smoke for which SOx concentrations in exhaust gasses are measured in accordance with laws and regulations, etc.
SOx emissions = concentration of SOx in exhaust gasses × annual exhaust gasses
Dust emissions kg Covers facilities generating soot/smoke for which particulate matter concentrations in exhaust gasses are measured in accordance with laws and regulations, etc.
Dust emissions = concentration of particulate matter in exhaust gasses × annual exhaust gasses

Water Use/Wastewater

<The boundary of calculation>
Domestic Research Laboratories: CHUGAI PHARMACEUTICAL CO., LTD. Ukima Research Laboratories (Ukima site), Fuji Gotemba Research Laboratories, Kamakura Research Laboratories
Domestic Plants: Chugai Pharma Manufacturing Co., Ltd.(CPMC) Ukima Plant(Ukima site),Fujieda Plant, Utsunomiya Plant
Overseas Research Laboratories: Chugai Pharmabody Research Pte. Ltd.,(CPR)
Overseas Plant: Chugai Pharma Technology Taizhou Co. Ltd.(CPTT)

Environmental performance indicator Unit Calculation method
Total water use thousand tons Total water withdrawn for use at sites or facilities (city water, well water, industrial water)
Since FY2019, the use of well water has been confirmed at the Ukima site, so the amount of well water used has been newly added.
The effect is minor.
Wastewater thousand tons Total water discharged to sewer systems or to public water zones
In addition, because wastewater from the Ukima Site and overseas Group companies is not measured, the amount of wastewater is deemed to be equivalent to the amount of water withdrawn at these sites. In addition, until 2019, the Fuji Gotemba Research Institute considered the amount of water withdrawn as the amount of wastewater.
From 2020, in order to express the amount of wastewater more appropriately, the amount obtained by excluding the amount of water supplied to boilers and cooling towers from the amount of water withdrawn is regarded as the amount of wastewater.

Standards for Calculating Social Performance Indicators

<The boundary of calculation>
Chugai Group employees: Employees at all Group sites and facilities in Japan (including contract employees, part-time employees, temporary employees, employees on loan to our group)
Contractors: Employees of contractors (dealing with equipment and equipment maintenance contractors, etc.) who work together with Chugai Group employees at plants, research laboratories, and other business sites with hazardous operations.

<Change in calculation method>
Until 2019, Lost-worktime injury frequency rate and Occupational incidence severity were calculated only by Chugai group employees. Since the accounting procedures have been established since 2020, we have included contractor employees in the scope of aggregation in order to improve the comprehensiveness of aggregation and calculation.
As the result of this change, the rate of lost-worktime injury frequency rate in 2020 increased by 0.21 and Occupational incidence severity increased by 0.003 compared to the calculation method before the change.

<Calculation period>
January - December 2020

Lost-worktime Injury Frequency rate, Occupational incidence severity and Occupational Illness Frequency rate

Social performance indicator Calculation method
Lost-worktime injury frequency rate Number of people injured or killed in occupational accidents per 1 million work hours (resulting in at least one work day off, and an application for accident compensation insurance, but excluding accidents during commuting), showing the frequency of occurrence
Injury frequency rate = number of people injured or killed in occupational accidents / total number of actual working hours x 1,000,000
Occupational incidence severity Number of days of work lost to occupational accidents (excluding accidents during commuting) per 1,000 work hours, showing the severity of the accident
Occupational incidence severity = number of workdays lost / total number of actual working hours x 1,000
Occupational Illness Frequency rate Number of occupational diseases per 1 million work hours (calculated based on persons certified as occupational accidents) represents the frequency of occurrence of occupational diseases.
Occupational diseases are stipulated in Article 35 of the Ordinance for Enforcement of the Labor Standards Act in Japan.
Occupational Illness Frequency rate = number of occupational diseases / total number of actual working hours x 1,000,000
