Integrity Report I: Meet our responsibilities to society; Striving to establish a position as one of the world's foremost eco-companies

Developing the concept of three “Greens” toward realization of Environmental Vision 2050

Toshiba Group believes that contributing to solve one of the most urgent environmental issues, climate change, through our business activities is at the core of CSR management.

Introducing the three “Greens”

  • I) Green of Process; Manufacturing and other activities: We will continue our efforts to reduce environmental impacts generated by our manufacturing activities from the perspective of mitigation of climate change, management of chemical substances and efficient use of resources. To this end, we will enhance our global environmental management by utilizing the know-how that we have accumulated in Japan. -> Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Enhancement of Global Environmental Management
  • II) Green of Product; Energy-and resource-saving products: As a manufacturer that provides a variety of products to the global market, we are working to reduce the environmental impacts of our products. In FY2010, we established new standards for Environmentally Conscious Products (ECPs) in order to achieve top-level environmental performance for all of the products that we develop. -> Highest Level of Environmental Performance for All Products
  • III) Green of Technology; Environmental and energy technologies: We will contribute to the protection of the global environment and the provision of a stable supply of energy through the development of power generation systems. We will focus our efforts on the development and provision of new energy technologies, such as nuclear power generation systems, solar power generation systems, secondary batteries, smart grids (the next-generation power supply network), and carbon capture and storage systems. -> Development of Smart Grid, the Next-Generation Power Supply Network

Environmental Vision 2050: to address environmental challenges

In 2007, Toshiba Group announced Environmental Vision 2050, aimed at achieving a world where people enjoy affluent lifestyles in harmony with the Earth in 2050. In order to reach this goal, we have set medium- and longterm numerical targets based on predictions regarding population, economic growth, and CO2 emissions. We are engaged in efforts to further reduce environmental impacts, from the perspective of contribution to mitigation of climate change, efficient use of resources, and management of chemicals; and we are also aiming to create a higher quality of life.

In FY2010, we began revising our standards related to the evaluation of environmentally conscious products in order to achieve the highest level of environmental performance for all newly developed products. Based on the precise application of the new standards, we aim to expand our energy-efficient products and energy businesses.

We are proactively engaged in efforts that contribute to the mitigation of climate change, and estimate that in FY2020 we will be able to cut CO2 emissions of Toshiba products, including those that are already shipped, by around 750 million tons. Toshiba Group is endeavoring to establish a position as one of the world's foremost eco-companies by pursuing greening of process, greening of products, and greening by technology, thereby contributing to the realization of a sustainable planet.

Environmental Vision 2050: Toshiba Group practices environmental management that promotes harmony with the Earth, contributing to the creation of a richer lifestyle for society.
