Management of Chemicals Reduction of Specified Chemical Substances contained in products (Reduction of PVC*5/BFRs*5) 20product groups*6 17product groups*6 30product groups*6

Details of FY2012 Results

  • In order to reduce the amount of specified chemical substances contained in products, Toshiba Group created PVC/BFR-free flagship models and exhaustively followed up on the status of reduction at each company. However, we successfully reduced the use of such substances in only 17 product groups. One reason for our failure to achieve our goal was that evaluating substitute substances took a significant amount of time. Another reason was the high costs of substitute parts.

Challenges for FY2013

  • The challenges are that it takes a significant amount of time to evaluate substitute substances and that PVC/BFR-free products are costly.

*5 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most common plastics and is used in a wide range of products. However, there is concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal, as well as the toxicity of certain plasticizers (e.g., phthalate esters) added to PVCs.
Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are used for plastics to make them noncombustible. Some BFRs are raising health concerns while others persist in the environment or are bioaccumulative. There is also concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal.
*6 Special uses are excluded.

*8 The volume of waste emitted is obtained by subtracting the volume of valuables from the total volume of waste generated (excluding that of waste disposal and power generation sites).
*9 Toshiba Group's definition of “zero emissions” of waste is that the amount of landfill waste after treatment is equivalent to less than 0.5% for manufacturing sites and 1.0% for nonmanufacturing sites of the total amount of by-products and other items generated (total amount of waste discharged) as a result of business activities (excluding the sites with restrictions under laws and administrative guidance).
