Data is for January to December. Amounts are rounded. As a result, the sum and breakdown of data may not equal the totals.
*2
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.
*3
Data have been calculated on the basis of revenue. FY2016 and FY2017 data have been calculated besed on the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
*4
Data has been revised as a change of scope and a result of data review.
*5
We have disclosed Category5 data since FY2016.
*6
FY2015 data include emission from waste transport.
*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.
