On June 9 and 10, 2016, the 25th Toshiba Group Environmental Exhibition was held at Kawasaki City's Smart Community Center (Lazona Kawasaki Toshiba Building). Approximately 4,000 guests visited during the two days. At this year's Environmental Exhibition, we presented 45 examples of environmentally conscious products and services as well as manufacturing technologies that reduce environmental impacts in the areas of energy, social infrastructure, and storage, which are the major pillars of Toshiba Group's growth strategy. Also, since this year marked the 25th anniversary of the Environmental Exhibition, we displayed panels that showed Toshiba Group's environmental management and the Exhibition's history. We also created an area where visitors could send messages to Toshiba Group. In addition, we held a BEMS tour to introduce our building solutions as well as a briefing session for the press.

We displayed three-dimensional flash memories that enable large-capacity storage alongside energy conservation activities, including programs to visualize energy efficiency and analyze data at Yokkaichi Operations, where three-dimensional flash memories are mass-produced. We also displayed power semiconductors, which are used in railroad and power systems.
