(*1) ESCO
ESCO is an acronym for Energy Service Company (a business which uses energy reduction as collateral). The energy conservation by introducing natural gas into its boilers at the Konami Sports Club is endorsed by the ESCO business enterprise.
(*2) Calculated on the assumption that one 50-year-old cedar tree absorbs approx. 14 kg of CO2 per year (according to "Sink Measures to Prevent Global Warming" by the Ministry of the Environment and the Forestry Agency). (*3) Figures through FY2020 to FY2022 reflect impact of temporary closures and reduced hours placed as countermeasure for COVID-19 pandemic in some areas.
