Excellent ECPs

Group-wide efforts for the creation of products with the highest level of environmental performance

Results of FY2013 and future initiatives

Toshiba Group is making efforts to achieve the highest level of environmental performance for all products we develop. In an effort to enhance the creation of ECPs, we have introduced sales of Excellent ECPs as an indicator. In FY2013, we certified 127 products as Excellent ECPs. As a result of expanding the range of certified products in the areas of social infrastructure, healthcare, and electronic devices, Toshiba Group's sales of Excellent ECPs totaled 1.6 trillion yen, greatly exceeding the goal (800 billion yen). The Group's initiative is not limited to products for the domestic market; Excellent ECPs are being created in countries around the world.

We will further accelerate the creation of Excellent ECPs in the areas of solutions and system products, for which environmental performance is difficult to measure, with a view to achieving the Fifth Environmental Action Plan goal (sales of Excellent ECPs totaling 1.8 trillion yen in FY2015) as soon as possible.

Energy & Infrastructure

In order to meet growing energy demand in the world, Toshiba Group will provide basic power supply and power generation systems globally that contribute to a stable energy supply and the shift toward a low carbon society as well as equipment, systems, and services that support social and industrial infrastructure. Geothermal power generation, which uses the thermal energy of the earth's magma, contributes to mitigation of climate change by stably providing electricity without being affected by seasonal transitions and weather changes. In addition, more efficient industrial equipment and motors for infrastructure facilities contribute to conserving energy throughout all of society and mitigating climate change.

Community Solutions

In order to contribute to the creation of smart communities designed to be environmentally friendly and to ensure comfortable lifestyles, Toshiba Group provides total solutions for a wide range of areas, including energy and water as well as transportation and medical care, for offices, factories and homes. In offices, for example, we develop devices with the highest efficiency for facilities (e.g., lighting and air conditioning systems as well as elevators) and provide advanced office equipment. We also provide services for achieving detailed control of the operation of such devices, thereby reducing the overall energy consumption of buildings. In terms of water infrastructure, we contribute to reducing public facilities' environmental impacts.

Healthcare Systems & Services

To meet the needs of medical care, which continue to become more complex and diverse, Toshiba Group develops image diagnosis systems (e.g., X-ray CT equipment, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems, and ultrasound systems) to provide the most advanced medical services with the least environmental impact. We promote the creation of ECPs by using dose reduction technologies (which minimize patient dose), energy conservation technology, and resource conservation technology (which reduces installation work by decreasing the size and weight of products).
