Environmental Aspects (Environmental Burden)

Environmental Aspects

When it comes to our business activities, these involve inputs such as energy and resources and the creation of products, which is accompanied by outputs such as CO2, waste, and so on. These inputs and outputs are regarded as environmental aspects within ISO14001.

An overview of this is shown in the figure below (covers all domestic plants + overseas manufacturing subsidiaries). The basis of our environmental improvement activities lies in reducing the amount of inputs and outputs, and we work to address such activities by determining each of these items for every area in a detailed manner.

Numerical period subject to above-mentioned INPUT/OUTPUT: April 2015 - March 2016

  1. *1:The priority controlled chemical substances refer to 36 substances selected as being subject to priority control efforts.
  2. *2:The CO2 emissions coefficient from electricity in Japan is 0.476 t- CO2/MWh (receiving-end CO2 emissions basic unit for FY2011 announced by the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan). The other conversion factors are from the Act on the Rational Use of Energy and the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures. Local emissions coefficients for China, Taiwan, and the Philippines were used for the CO2 emissions coefficients from electricity in other countries.
  3. *3:Among substances covered in the Act on Promotion of Global Warming Countermeasures, we use the term
    "greenhouse gases" to refer to these seven substances: PFC (CF4, c-C4F8), HFC (CHF3, C2HF5), SF6, NF3, N2O. We use AR4 for the emission coefficient.
  4. *4:Within Japan, this refers only to emissions of the 36 priority controlled chemical substances designated by JDI, and overseas it refers only to emissions of VOC.
