    (Compares annual emissions during the usage stage and cumulates emissions for half the product life.)
  • *2 Compared with CO2 emissions (rate to net production output) for average thermal power of the same fuel type; for nuclear power and renewable energy, compared with CO2 emissions (rate to net production output) for average thermal power of all types.

  • *4 [Amount of recyclable plastics] / [amount of plastics used for products] × 100
  • *5 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most common plastics and is used in a wide range of products. However, there is concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal, as well as the toxicity of certain plasticizers (e.g., phthalate esters) added to PVCs. Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are used for plastics to make them noncombustible. Some BFRs are raising health concerns while others persist in the environment or are bioaccumulative. There is also concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal.
  • *6 Special uses are excluded.
