We will comply with various environment-related requirements we have agreed to, in addition to laws and regulations related to the environment, including those related to waste disposal.
We will continuously promote the 3Rs (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle) in our business activities, centered on leasing and financial services, and strive to reduce the generation of waste and dispose waste appropriately, thereby contributing to the creation of a recycling-oriented society.
We will contribute to the achievement of a carbon-free society by promoting initiatives related to renewable energy and energy-saving/fuel-saving assets to reduce emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
We will set environmental targets, implement environmental protection activities, and provide feedback on the results to work on continuous review and improvement and prevention of pollution.
We will enhance awareness of environmental issues by thoroughly disseminating our environmental policy to all employees, widely supporting their individual voluntary efforts to improve the environment.
Our "Environmental Philosophy and Environmental Policy” are published both internally and externally.
BOT Lease Co., Ltd.
We aim to expand the supply of green energy through renewable energy power generation projects, mainly solar power generation facilities, and promote initiatives for energy- and fuel-efficient properties, as well as expand business opportunities in decarbonization and next-generation energy-related businesses.
We do not engage in credit transactions that have a significant adverse impact on the global environment. When extending credit to a business that may have a significant impact on the global environment, we will determine our response after confirming that the business is fulfilling its social responsibilities, such as giving appropriate consideration to environmental issues in accordance with laws, regulations, and practices generally accepted internationally or locally.
BOT Lease Co., Ltd. has been engaged in continuous activities with the aim to reduce environmental burdens and protect the environment. First of all, we have calculated GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions to visualize our own environmental impact.
ⅰ.GHG emissions Scope 1 and 2
Since last year, we have calculated and disclosed the amount of GHG emissions from vehicles used by our company (domestic headquarters and branches) (Scope 1) and the amount of GHG emissions from electricity used (Scope 2).
Results for FY2021 and FY2022
ⅱ.GHG emissions Scope 3
From this fiscal year, we started to calculate upstream and downstream emissions (Scope 3) in our value chains, going back to the previous fiscal year. To reduce emissions in the future, we plan to set reduction targets by understanding the emissions of the entire value chains.
BOT Lease Co., Ltd. and 76 consolidated subsidiaries (Note that the GHG emissions of consolidated subsidiaries are estimated from BOTL emissions by using such as the ratios of sales and number of employees between the subsidiaries and the headquarters.)
|Category||CO2 emissions (t-CO2)|
|1||Purchased products and services||123,103||134,875||11,772|
|3||Fuel and energy related activities not included in Scope 1 and 2||66||55||-11|
|4||Transport and distribution (upstream)||70||78||8|
|5||Waste from operations||297||121||-176|

|Scope 1, 2 and 3 Total||714,463||577,603||-136,859|
ⅲ.GHG emissions from our investments and loan portfolio
On top of that, we also calculate the GHG emissions generated by the assets in our major investments and loan portfolio.
Our portfolio of investments and loans related to Vessels, aircrafts, real estates, and rigs (offshore drilling rigs)
Results for fiscal 2021 and 2022
|Investments and Loan||CO2 emissions (t-CO2)|
We will curb waste emissions by increasing the re-lease transition rate of leased properties and promoting the 3Rs (sales of used products and materials). We will also dispose external waste appropriately in accordance with the laws.
We will develop a BCP for climate change disasters and address any issues detected.
We have been committed to continuous activities with the aim of reducing environmental impact and protecting the environment.
Electricity consumption at the headquarters in FY2022 was 286,489kw, approximately 27% decrease from FY2021.
In FY2022, OA paper consumption at the head office decreased by approximately 29% compared to that of FY2021 due to the promotion of paperless operations.
Our consumables purchases in FY2022 decreased by approximately 40% compared to that of FY2021 due to our promotion of the 3Rs among consumables expenses.
(FY2021 includes consumables purchase expenses related to the head office relocation.)
