Environmental Action Plan 2015 focuses on three pillars: (1) Providing Environmentally Conscious Products, (2) Eco-conscious Factories and Offices, and (3) Environmental Cooperation with Stakeholders.
For (1), one action target is to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions through the provision of products. Our goal is to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 million tons in emerging countries in 2015, and in fiscal 2011 we were able to reduce emissions by 17 million tons.
For (2), we have set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from production in fiscal 2015 to just one-third of fiscal 2005 levels (a 67% reduction). In fiscal 2011, we achieved 62% emission reductions through efforts that included reducing fluorocarbon emissions in our chemicals divisions.
For (3), our action target is to work with stakeholders such as local citizens, governments, and NPOs to make environmental contributions that meet local needs. In fiscal 2011, we began support of environmental protection at Shiretoko, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Environmental Action Plan 2015
|Action targets||FY2015 target values||FY2011 results|
