Reducing CO2and Other Greenhouse Gas Emissions Throughout the Entire Value Chain
COP21(※) was held in 2015. In response to measures required to combat global warming and climate change on a global scale, the ROHM Group is increasing its transparency of equipment power usage and office energy consumption to reduce excess energy use while actively striving to cut down emissions of CO2 and of PFC gases that have an even more severe greenhouse effect.
To reduce the level of CO2 emissions from all business activities, ROHM expanded the range of its estimates to cover Scopes 1 and 2 as well as Scope 3, calculating CO2 emissions for the entire value chain.
