3.Reduce Our Own Environmental Impact

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

(t-CO2) 2021 2022 Increase/
Scope 1 33 44 11
Scope 2 201 129 -72
Total 234 173 -61
  • ・Scope 1 results increased from the previous year due to the addition of rental cars and car sharing to the Scope 1 from this fiscal year, as well as company-owned cars.
  • ・On the other hand, Scope 2 results decreased significantly due to the relocation of the head office and reduction in the number of floors used.

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.

【Calculation Targets】
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)
2021 2022 Increase/
1 Purchased products and services 123,103 134,875 11,772
2 Capital Goods 433 35 -398
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
6 Business travel 108 185 77

10 Processing of products sold Not Applicable
11 Use of products sold 12,502 5,956 -6,546
12 Disposal of products sold 16,976 20,792 3,816
13 Leased assets (downstream) 545,784 400,200 -145,584
14 Franchise Not Applicable
15 Investments 11,923 11,923 1
Total 714,229 577,430 -136,798
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.

【Calculation Target】
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)
FY2021 FY2022 Increase/
Vessels 677,220 665,965 -11,255
Aircrafts 101,313 86,890 -14,423
Real estates 4,712 10,360 5,648
Rigs 65,787 0 -65,787
Total 849,032 763,215 -85,817

4.Reduction of waste emissions and appropriate disposal through promotion of 3Rs among leased properties

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.

Related SDGs

5.Adaptation to climate change

We will develop a BCP for climate change disasters and address any issues detected.
