Message from the editor
[Image] Message from the editor
We started to plan Toshiba Group Environmental Report 2016 with a firm commitment to showing stakeholders how we are making genuine efforts for environmental management as the revitalized Toshiba.
In an effort to show Toshiba Group’s stance towards environmental management in top executives’ own words, we presented an interview with the CEO at the beginning of this report. In addition, we asked four in-house company presidents to display their commitment in the feature article. We also took care to report on a wide range of events, including case studies on our products and business processes, site activities to conserve rare animal species, and employees’ voices in order to show our activities from every angle.
In order to achieve Environmental Vision 2050, Toshiba Group will continue to work sincerely to implement environmental management. We look forward to your continued support.
