・Report Scope:
The Bank’s business sites: The Norinchukin Bank’s domestic business sites
Group companies and overseas locations: The Bank’s consolidated subsidiaries and overseas business sites
・Method of measuring GHG emissions:
Used the coefficients according to the “Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Measurement and Reporting Manual” prepared by the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Government of Japan. For measurement at overseas business sites, the coefficients stipulated by the respective countries were used, in principle.
For Scope 3 (Business Travel), used the coefficients according to the “Basic Guidelines on Accounting for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Throughout the Supply Chain” prepared by the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Government of Japan.

*1 Fuel- and energy-related activities and business travel
*2 Amount of water consumption at the Bank’s head office building (DN Tower, Otemachi One Tower) and Akishima Center, as well as its Group companies and overseas business sites
*3 Amount of copy paper delivered to the Bank’s domestic business sites, Group companies and overseas business sites
*4 The amount of waste generated is the sum of the amount of general waste (recycled volume derived from used paper, etc., and waste burned) and that of industrial waste generated from the Bank’s head office building (DN Tower), Group companies and overseas business sites.
The final disposal volume is obtained by subtracting the recycled volume (amount of used paper and mixed paper waste at the Bank’s head office building (DN Tower)) from the amount of waste generated.
