The NH Foods Group has undertaken ongoing initiatives to safeguard the environment since formulating its Environmental Charter in 1998. We endeavor to disclose information regarding these efforts on our website and in our social and environmental reports.
To ensure that this data is appropriate, in fiscal 2018 we commissioned SGS Japan Inc. to conduct third-party verifications of the methodology used to calculate and the suitability of the calculation scope about greenhouse gas emissions and water consumptions.

(Metric tons CO2 equivalent)
|Light Oil||28,096 L||73|
|Heavy fuel oil A||21,785,881 L||59,032|
|Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)||8,267,647 kg||24,794|
