Management of ozone-depleting substances

Toshiba Group possesses specified chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which deplete the ozone layer, as coolant for air conditioners installed in sites; we appropriately dispose of such CFCs in accordance with the law. In FY2015, the Group had 10.3 tons of specified CFCs. In FY2016, due to measures such as facility upgrades, we reduced the amount of specified CFCs to 9.8 tons, a reduction of about 5% compared to the previous year.

Under the system for reporting and publishing the estimated amount of CFC leaks stipulated in the Fluorocarbons Emissions Control Act, Toshiba Corporation reported approximately 2,500 t-CO2 of leaks in FY2016. We will continue to further enhance our management of chemicals through routine and periodic inspections as well as environmental audits.
