Excellent ECPs

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

Results of FY2014 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 FY2014, we certified 143 products as Excellent ECPs. As a result of expanding the range of certified products in the areas of social infrastructure, healthcare, and electronic devices, including the certification of low-end notebook PCs, Toshiba Group's sales of Excellent ECPs totaled 2.34 trillion yen, greatly exceeding the goal (1.8 trillion yen) for FY2015 one year ahead of schedule. Excellent ECPs are being created in countries around the world, but not limited to products for the domestic market.

We will further accelerate the creation of Excellent ECPs in the areas of solutions and system products, for which environmental performance is difficult to evaluate, with a view to achieving the creation of Excellent ECPs in all Toshiba Group product areas.

Energy & Infrastructure Systems

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. It is expected that residential fuel cell systems will be used widely as the next generation in power generation systems. In addition, Toshiba Group’s secondary battery SCiB is installed on cars, power generation systems, and a variety of other devices by taking advantage of its features, including quick charging, a long battery life, and a high level of safety.

Healthcare Systems & Services

To meet the needs of medical care, which continue to become more complex and diverse, Toshiba Group is developing image diagnosis systems (e.g., X-ray equipment and Ultrasonic diagnosis system) to provide the most advanced medical services with the least environmental impact. We promote environmentally conscious design from a wider perspective by using dose reduction technologies (which minimize the doses that patient and medical workers are subjected to), energy-saving technology, and resource conservation technology (which reduces installation work by decreasing the size and weight of products).
