Management of ozone-depleting substances

Toshiba Group possesses specified chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which deplete the ozone layer, as coolant for air conditioners installed in factories; we appropriately dispose of such CFCs in accordance with the law. In FY2011, the Group had 14 tons of specified CFCs and 281 tons of other types of fluorocarbons. In FY2012, due to measures such as the replacement of old air conditioning systems with high-efficiency systems, we reduced the amount of specified CFCs to 12 tons and the amount of other fluorocarbons to 256 tons. The amount of specified CFCs possessed by the Group was reduced by 11% compared to the previous year. We will continue to properly manage CFCs.
