Management: We aim to become an excellent company that lives up to the public’s expectations by strengthening our environmental management.

Basic policy

In an effort to support "Business" activities for manufacturing and products and services, Toshiba Group is also promoting “Management” initiatives to enhance the basis for environmental management.

In Management, we place the highest priority on ensuring compliance to raise the level of our environmental activities by maintaining a check system based on our original environmental audits as well as through environmental education for employees and human resource development programs. In addition, we also proactively promote communication with stakeholders and conservation of biodiversity.

Results of FY2017 and future initiatives

Under the Sixth Environmental Action Plan that has started in FY2017, we promote activities to achieve three goals: ensuring environmental risk compliance, promoting environmental communication, and conserving biodiversity.

To achieve the first goal of ensuring environmental risk compliance, we enhanced compliance with global environmental regulations by preparing a system for distributing information on laws and regulations throughout the Group and collecting issues in a timely manner. In addition, we worked to improve programs for environmental human resources development by preparing study sessions on legal compliance for persons responsible for the environment at our sites in China. As a result of these efforts, the number of legal violations in FY2017 turned out to be zero.

To achieve the second goal of promoting environmental communication, we worked to appropriately disclose information. As a result of these efforts, Toshiba Group Environmental Report 2017 won the award of merit in the Environmental Communication Awards held by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan. We also promoted the development of networks with stakeholders in various ways. In Japan, we conducted educational programs for elementary school children at Toshiba Science Museum and peripheral elementary schools for approximately 30 times and held Toshiba Group Environmental Exhibition with nearly 3,000 visitors. At our sites worldwide, we conducted Global Environmental Action program, including energy-saving events and education activities in Japan, Europe, Americas, Asia, and China.

To achieve the third goal of conserving biodiversity, we set 10 of the 20 Aichi Targets as goals for Toshiba Group and implemented various activities, such as employee enlightenment activities, building ecosystem networks, and protecting rare animal and plant species at our approximately 70 sites around the world.
