The scope 1, 2, and 3 classifications follow The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol):http://www.ghgprotocol.org/

The coverage by region is as follows (coverage is equivalent to 96% of the FTE). However, data on air transportation in scope 3 are compiled based on corporate data.

Japan: Group companies located in Japan (http://www.nomuraholdings.com/company/group/)
Europe: Offices in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich, Madrid, Milan, Luxembourg, and Cape Town
Americas: Offices in New York and Instinet offices
Asia-Pacific: Offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Dalian, and Bangkok

1 The Bangkok office was included in the scope for Asia from FY2014/15. The Cape Town office was included in the scope for Europe from FY2017/18.

2 Data based on airline and long-distance railway travel in Japan and overseas purchased from specified travel agencies. Data for Japan, Europe, and the India, Hong Kong and Bangkok offices of Asia include emissions from regularly used automobiles.

3 Assurance-verified data for Asia totaled 11,002 t-CO2 in FY2017/18. (Offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, India and Bangkok.)

4 Data for FY2012/13 was comprised of Japan and the Frankfurt and Zurich offices for Europe. Additions to the scope for Europe were the Milan office from FY2013/14, the London office from FY2014/15, and the Luxembourg and Paris offices from FY2015/16.

5 Data for FY2012/13 and FY2013/14 were compiled based on paper purchased from specified suppliers by Nomura Securities for Japan, paper consumed by the London office for Europe, and paper consumed by the India and Hong Kong offices for Asia. From FY2014/15, the scope was expanded to include the Bangkok office for Asia, and from A4 paper to all copy paper purchased by Nomura Securities for Japan.

6 Data for FY2012/13 was compiled based on the Nihonbashi Head Office building and Dai-ni Edobashi Building in Tokyo, the Osaka Branch, and the Nagoya Branch for Japan, the London, Paris, Frankfurt, and Zurich offices for Europe, and the India office for Asia. Additions to the scope were the Urbannet Otemachi Building in Tokyo, the Kyoto Branch, and the Okayama Branch for Japan, and the Hong Kong office for Asia from FY2013/14, the Luxembourg office for Europe from FY2014/15, and the Nomura Asset Management Head Office building in Tokyo for Japan from FY2015/16.
