(In this page, we describe targets and outcomes of former Storage & Electronic Devices Solutions Company Group of Toshiba Corporation)
The status of Toshiba Storage & Electronic Devices Solutions Company Group's environmental impact in FY2015 is described below. We strive to improve environmental efficiency by analyzing its impact on the environment, utilizing the efficient environmental management information system.
As shown in the table below, we achieved all target items in FY2015. To meet reduction targets of greenhouse gases, we introduced inter-departmental energy conservation activity measures and removal facilities for PFC gases. We also developed measures for the reduction of waste based on the 3R (reduce, reuse and recycle) principle. In regards to the reduction of chemical emissions and substances, we instituted recycling and chemical reduction plans.
|Plan||Result||Evaluation||Activities to achieve plan|
|Reduction of energy-originated CO2 emissions *1||Total emissions||1,998 thousand ton-CO2 or less||1,797 thousand ton-CO2||°||Reduction activities promoted by the Crossplatform energy saving project|
|Reductions of total emissions of certain greenhouse gases, excluding CO2 *2||Total emissions||464 thousand ton-CO2 or less||378 thousand ton-CO2||°||Reduction activities promoted by the PFC Reduction WG|
|Emissions of chemical substances to air and water (total amount)||Total emissions||1,040 ton or less||825 ton||°||Installed VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) abatement systems, and the like|
|Chemical substances treated (total amount) *4||Total handled amount||54.1 thousand ton or less||47.4 thousand ton||°||Promoting chemical substances recycling at waste water tretment, and the like|
|Total waste amount *3||Total amount of waste generated minus amount of valuable waste||47.1 thousand ton or less||44.3 thousand ton||°||Promoting metal materials recycling, and the like|
|Reduction in the total amount of waste generated||Total waste generated||90.4 thousand ton or less||77.7 thousand ton||°||Promoting waste recycling|
|Reduction of water intake||Amount of water intake||35,798 thousand m3 or less||31,202 thousand m3||°||Promoting waste water recycling, and the like|
|Biodiversity preservation activities||Preservation and measurement of objective species at all targeted sites||All sites||All sites||°||Promoting biodiversity activities based on local experts advice|
(°: Achieved target)
Below chart is FY2016 environmental performance plan. We can expect a higher demand for our products as the market for smart-phone storage systems, data centers and other application fields increase in the future. We anticipate the increase of environmental loads as a result of expanding our production capabilities. But at the same time, we will conduct effective energy conservation investments in new lines, enhance efficient raw material use, and for chemical substances to promote resource conservation and waste recycling all in the effort to reduce environmental loads.
|Reduction of energy-originated CO2 emissions *1||Total emissions||2,025 thousand ton-CO2 or less|
|Reductions of total emissions of certain greenhouse gases, excluding CO2 *2||Total emissions||471 thousand ton-CO2 or less|
|Emissions of chemical substances to air and water (total amount)||Total emissions||1,020 ton or less|
|Chemical substances treated (total amount)||Total handled amount||50.0 thousand ton or less|
|Total waste amount *3||Total amount of waste generated minus amount of valuable waste||50.1 thousand ton or less|
|Reduction in the total amount of waste generated||Total waste generated||86.3 thousand ton or less|
|Reduction of water intake||Amount of water intake||34,000 thousand m3 or less|
|Biodiversity Preservation Activity||Number of objective sites (measurement and preservation activities)||7 sites|
