Carbon Offsets from Success-Fee Emission Permits

Since 2001, Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities has been offering general consultation services provided regarding the Clean Development Mechanism set forth in the Kyoto Protocol for the purpose of balancing the development of emerging nations with efforts to prevent global warming.

As for the consulting fees, in the case where it is difficult for an emerging nation to make cash payment, the emission permits obtained from the consultation outcomes may be accepted as a success fee. These emission permits obtained from the consultation services will be used for carbon offsets in three buildings of our head office.

In March 2009, we implemented carbon offsets for a portion of the CO2 generated from power consumption at the head office buildings with the emission permits obtained from the rice husk power generation project in Thailand that was transferred to a retirement account of the Japanese government. We will continue to use the emission permits obtained as success fees to successively implement carbon offsets.
