Reducing Our Environmental Impacts through Core Business

Environmental Accounting: Reducing CO2 and Achieving Economic Effects through LoansBTMU

Financing making use of the Japanese government's interest rate subsidy program targets a diverse range of items, such as the installation of generating equipment powered by solar, wind and other types of renewable energy; air conditioning equipment at factories and office buildings; lighting and other energy-saving equipment and materials; energy-conscious construction; and a variety of waste disposal and treatment facilities, including industrial waste recycling facilities, melting furnaces and final-treatment plants. Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ provides support for customers' environmentally conscious businesses and contributes indirectly to reducing their environmental impact.

  • Note:¥7,000/ton was used as the highest cost of measures necessary to meet Kyoto Protocol targets until FY 2010. The average cost of Excess Reductions is detailed in the "Results of the assessment of trading prices," a Tokyo Metropolitan Government survey on total reduction obligations and the emissions trading structure in the metropolitan area. From FY 2011 onwards, this was used as a measure that could be equated with a reduction cost within Japan.

Reducing Our Environmental Impacts of Business Activities

Reductions in CO2 Emissions from Business Activities and Employee Travel

[Method of calculation for FY 2015]

  • Period covered: April 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016
  • Scope of Reporting: Includes five companies: Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking, Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities, and Mitsubishi UFJ NICOS. Data for Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities includes data for Mitsubishi UFJ Securities Holdings, with the exception company automobiles (gasoline).
  • CO2 Emissions Calculation Method: (1) City gas, LPG, kerosene, light oil, heavy oil, steam/hot water, cold water, and gasoline are calculated according to factors based on the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures; (2) Electricity is calculated according to the most recent raw/unadjusted emissions factors by electricity producers for FY 2014 based on the Act on the Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures;
    (3) Overseas travel (international routes) is calculated according to a factor specified in the General Guidelines on Supply Chain GHG Emission Accounting (Ministry of the Environment / Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry).

Environmental Accounting Information for Our Offices

MUFG introduced and began announcing the results of environmental accounting from FY 2009, as part of environmentally conscious business activities, for the quantitative management of environmental efforts. Table 1 (Costs for Environmental Measures) presents the aggregate results for the costs for group environmental measures. MUFG measures and reports environmental impact data and greenhouse gas emissions quantities for all core group companies. Table 2 (Benefits of Environmental Measures) presents data regarding the benefits of these environmental measures, including the consumption of fuel, electricity and heat, and other factors, as well as CO2 emissions.

Investments in cost for environmental measures in FY 2015 increased by ¥8.549 billion compared to the previous year, to ¥11.349 billion, while the expense increased by ¥1.869 billion, to ¥7.255 billion.

The largest share of investments in cost for environmental measures was for global environmental protection, mainly for installation of energy-efficient air conditioning and lighting equipment.

Electricity consumption, our main environmental performance indicator for investments into global environmental protection measures, was from the previous year to 399.73 million kWh in FY 2015.

We aim to further enhance the group's environmental measures and build upon the benefits, as demonstrated through this environmental accounting, of the environmental actions taken by the group's core companies.

[Method of calculation for FY 2015]

  • Period covered: April 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016
  • Companies included: Core group companies (Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking, Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities and Mitsubishi UFJ NICOS).
  • Accounting method: Based on Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005, published by Japanese Ministry of the Environment.
  • As for the method of calculation, the depreciation expenses on investment amounts are included in expenses using the straight line method for a service life of five years (with no residual value). The service life is set at five years as the period during which repairs and improvements are required following the introduction of environmental equipment.
  • As for standards for the posting of compound costs, items related to environmental preservation are calculated following Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005, published by Japanese Ministry of the Environment.
