CO2 Emissions Reduction from Precious Metals Recycling

The CO2 emissions reduction benefit from precious metals recycling by the Group is calculated as the emissions from its precious metals recycling deducted from the emissions that would have been produced by refining the same amount of precious metals from mined raw material. By expanding our precious metals recycling, we will also be indirectly contributing to CO2 emissions reduction.
(The CO2 emissions reduction figure does not indicate the level of emissions directly reduced by the Group.)

CO2 Emissions Reduction from Precious Metals Recycling

Environmental benefit of precious metals recycling

When CO2 savings are expressed as the amount of greenhouse gases absorbed by forests, it is equal to 22,617 hectares of forest (an area about one third the size of Lake Biwa)

22,617 hectares of forest
(an area about one third the size of Lake Biwa)

Note: Calculation was based on the assumption that one cedar tree absorbs 14 kg of CO2 annually (Source: Forestry Agency of Japan), and 1,700 cedar trees are planted in an area of one ha.
