Environmental Accounting

 

Since FY2002, Kurabo has been disclosing the environmental accounting as a part of its environmentally-friendly business activities. Our environmental accounting report has been prepared in reference of "Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005" published by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). We will continuously work on disclosing the environmental accounting that is both accurate and comprehensible. 

Method of Aggregation

   ・ Scope of aggregation: Kurabo, nonconsolidated
   ・ 
Period covered: April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018
   ・ 
Expenses also include personnel costs and depreciation expenses
   ・ In the purchase prices of facilities, we calculated the price for the function to contribute to environment
          and added it up for investment amount.

   ・ 
Economic effects of environmental conservation measures are counted only when a financial effect is
     obtained.

* Major environmental investments were equioment with low environmental impact such as gas boiler, and other energy-saving equipment such as high voltage transformer substation.

Economic benefit associated with environmental conservation activities

Unit: million yen

Description of benefitPreceding FYCurrent FY
Revenue Sale of waste 12 26
Expense saving Energy conservation and recirculation of resources 360 334
Total 372 360

* Major economic effects are brought about by the profit on sale of fibers waste such as cotton waste and the cost reduction due to recovery and recycling of raw materials such as caustic soda and ammonia.
