Environmental Preservation Activities throughout the Supply Chain
Reducing CO2 Emissions throughout the Supply Chain

LAWSON uses energy and various other resources in its store operations, impacting the environment

Our environmental impact is due not only to our own, direct operations, but to all stages in the supply chain, from raw material procurement to product manufacturing, logistics, sales, disposal, and recycling. We strive to understand our environmental impact at each stage, review steps needed for reduction, and take action to reduce energy consumption, resource use, and waste.

Going forward, we will continue to monitor CO2 emissions throughout the supply chain, reviewing changes over time and the results of mitigation measures in order to identify issues and further reduce emissions.

Direct CO2 emissions from sources such as fuels used by the company.
(For Lawson, this applies to the gasoline usage of company vehicles.)
CO2 emissions from the use of purchased electricity (CO2 emissions from electricity used by offices and directly-managed stores fall into this category, but those from franchise stores fall under Scope 3.)
CO2 emissions arising from company operations other than scopes 1 and 2.
