RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION started the environmental account in 2002 for the purpose of promoting our activities of environmental protection efficiently and effectively. As a consequence, we understand the cost we spent against the economic effect of the environment protection as the specific amount.

Calculation Method and Idea
Our calculations of the environmental protection costs and the economic effects are basically made in keeping with the "Environmental Account Guidebook (2005)" of the Ministry of the Environment. However, the classification of costs is modified to our own standard. Also, expenses related to environmental protection costs do not include depreciation. The economic effects are based on income and cost decreases, both of which are considered to be actual effects (as they are calculated using actual figures), and not on presumed or estimated effects.
