Environmental Burden

Environmental Burden

Our business activities consist of inputting energy and resources for product production, which are accompanied by outputs such as CO2, wastes, and so on. An overview of this is shown in the figure below (covering all domestic plants + overseas manufacturing subsidiaries in FY2019). 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.

Environmental Aspects
*1:
The priority controlled chemical substances refer to 38 substances selected as being subject to priority control efforts.
*2:
The CO2 emissions coefficient for electricity in Japan is 0.476 t-CO2/MWh (the receiving-end CO2 emissions basic unit for FY2011 released 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:
Among substance 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 and N2O. Emission factors of AR4 are used.
*4:
Within Japan, this refers only to emissions of the 38 priority controlled chemical substances designated by JDI, and for overseas it refers only to emissions of VOC.
