1) Establishment and Use of an Environmental Management System
<2> Establishment of Environmental Management System (EMS)
Nissan requests suppliers to acquire an external certificate of environmental management system
(EMS) such as ISO14001 or any system equivalent to ISO14001, as well as to establish their own
EMS.

<3> Designation of an Environmental Responsible Person
Nissan requests suppliers to designate an environmental responsible person (*).
Nissan will communicate through such person about the environmental activities in
order to promote the environmental activities with the partners.

*Input “999999999", If you don't have data.
5.Glossary: SCOPE1・SCOPE2 CO2 emission
• SCOPE1 CO2 emission (direct emission)
– Emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the reporting organization. For
example, direct emissions related to combustion would arise from burning fuel for energy
within the reporting organization’s operational boundaries.
– Mainly CO2 produced by burning gasoline, city gas and coal inside of each site.
• SCOPE2 CO2 emission (indirect emission)
– Emissions that result from the activities of the reporting organization but are generated at
sources owned or controlled by another organization. In the context of this Indicator,
indirect emissions refer to greenhouse gas emissions from the generation of electricity, heat,
or steam that is imported and consumed by the reporting organization.
– Mainly CO2 produced when purchased/used electricity was generated outside of the site.
• Compilation
– Direct measurement (continuous on-line automatic analyzer, etc.)
– Calculation based on default data (e.g. for gasoline, calculate by annual usage of gasoline
(kl) and CO2 emission factor (t-CO2/kl))
– Estimations. If estimations are used due to a lack of default figures, indicate which basis
figures were obtained
• Others
– Emissions from combustion processes and sources will correspond to the direct primary energy from non-
renewable and renewable sources defined in next slide. Note that the direct CO2 emissions from the
combustion of biomass shall not be included.
– Identify indirect emissions of greenhouse gases resulting from the generation of purchased electricity,
heat, or steam (relation with energy consumption reported in next slide). organizational
– travel is not included.
Reference: GRI Guideline G3, Indicator Protocole, Environment EN8
5.Glossary: Total energy consumption/renewable energy
Definition:
• Direct energy
– Forms of energy that enter the reporting organization’s operational boundaries. It can be
consumed either by the organization within its boundaries, or it can be exported to
another user. Direct energy can appear in either primary (e.g., natural gas for heating)
or intermediate (e.g., electricity for lighting) forms. It can be purchased, extracted (e.g.,
coal, natural gas, oil), harvested (e.g., biomass energy), collected (e.g., solar, wind), or
brought into the reporting organization’s boundaries by other means.
• Renewable energy
– Renewable energy is derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly.
This includes electricity and heat generated from solar, wind, ocean, hydropower,
biomass, geothermal resources, biofuels, and hydrogen derived from renewable
resources.
Coal 26.0GJ/t
Crude oil 6.22GJ/barrel
44.8GJ/t
Gasoline 0.125GJ/gallon
44.8GJ/t
Light oil 0.138GJ/gallon
43.33GJ/t
Natural gas 39.01GJ/1000m3
Electric power 0.0036GJ/KWh
Compilation:
– Calculate total energy consumption in gigajoules (one billion
joules) using primary energy source consumption on the left.
– When you use own figures or figures from other reference for
conversion to GJ, the figures shall be scientifically proven and
continuously useable.
Document:
– Information can be obtained from invoices, measured (or
calculated) heat/fuel accounting, estimations, defaults, etc.
Amounts of joules can be taken directly or converted from
invoices or delivery notes.
Table to convert volumes of
primary sources to GJ:
Reference: GRI Guideline G3, Indicator Protocole, Environment EN8
5.Glossary: Total water withdrawal
Definition:
• Total water withdraw
– The sum of all water drawn into the boundaries of the reporting organization from all
sources (including surface water, ground water, rainwater, and municipal water
supply) for any use over the course of the reporting period.

Compilation:
• Identify the total volume of water withdrawn from any water source that was either
withdrawn directly by the reporting organization or through intermediaries such as water
utilities. This includes the abstraction of cooling water.
• Report the total volume of water withdrawn in cubic meters per year (m3/year) by the
following sources:
– Surface water, including water from wetlands,
– rivers, lakes, and oceans;
– Ground water;
– Rainwater collected directly and stored by the reporting organization;
– Waste water from another organization; and
– Municipal water supplies or other water utilities.

Document:
– Information on organizational water withdrawal can be drawn from water meters,
water bills, calculations derived from other available water data or (if neither water
meters nor bills or reference data exist) the organization’s own estimates.
Reference: GRI Guideline G3, Indicator Protocole, Environment EN8
5.Glossary: Total water discharge
Definition:
• Total water discharge
– The sum of water effluents discharged over the course of the reporting period to
subsurface waters, surface waters, sewers that lead to rivers, oceans, lakes, wetlands,
treatment facilities, and ground water.

Compilation:
• Identify planned and unplanned water discharges (excluding collected rainwater and
domestic sewage) by destination and indicate how it is treated. If the reporting
organization does not have a meter to measure water discharges, this figure needs to be
estimated by subtracting the approximate volume consumed on-site from the volume
withdrawn as reported in EN8.
• Report the total volume of planned and unplanned water discharges in cubic meters per
year (m3/year). Main sources of water discharge would be;
•A defined discharge point (point source discharge);
•Over land in a dispersed or undefined manner (non-point source discharge); or
•Wastewater removed from the reporting organization via truck. Discharge of
collected rainwater and domestic sewage is not regarded as water discharge.

Document:
• Information sources about the volume of water discharged by the reporting organization
include flow meters (point-source discharges or when discharges are released through a
pipe) and regulatory permits.
Reference: GRI Guideline G3, Indicator Protocole, Environment EN21
5.Glossary: Total weight of waste
Definition:
• Total weight of waste
– Amount of waste created by the organization’s operations.
– Marketable goods=disposed of by the organization but purchased by an external
party are excluded.
Compilation::
• Identify the amount of waste created by the organization’s operations.
• If no weight data are available, estimate the weight using available information on waste
density and volume collected, mass balances, or similar information.
• Report the total amount of waste in tones by type as identified above for each of the
following disposal methods:
– Composting, reuse, recycling, recovery, incineration (or use as fuel), landfill, deep
well injection, on-site storage, and other (to be specified by the reporting
organization).

Document:
• Potential information sources include external waste audits by providers of disposal
services or waste balance sheets from these providers, as well as internal billing and
accounting systems, and the procurement or supply management department.
