Environmental Management

For the items related to Environmental Management, Toshiba Group has set new targets based on the new standards regarding the boundary and benchmark year of the Sixth Environmental Action Plan for the period from 2017 to 2020.

Improvement of environmental performance of products and services

Mitigation of Climate Change FY2015 FY2016 FY2016 FY2017
Achievement Target Achievement Target
Reduction of CO2emissions through eco-products (Power consumption)*1
(ISO26000 6.5.5, GRI G4-EN17, G4-EN19)
15.1 million tons 15.5 million tons 15.65 million tons The target based on a new standard has been set
In order to reduce CO2 emissions through the use of eco-products, we will continue to create Environmentally Conscious Products (ECPs).
Mitigation of Climate Change: Results of FY2016 and future initiatives
Efficient Use of Resources FY2015 FY2016 FY2016 FY2017
Achievement Target Achievement Target
Increasing the use of recycled plastics for products*2
(ISO26000 6.5.4, GRI G4-EN2)
8.80% 3.50% 10.60% The target based on a new standard has been set
The rate was improved by the increased amount of recycled plastic usage by MFP (Multi Functional Printers) etc. We will promote using recycled plastic even from now on.
Efficient Use of Resources: Increased use of recycled plastics
Management of Chemicals FY2015 FY2016 FY2016 FY2017
Achievement Target Achievement Target
Reduction of specified chemical substances in products*3 (Reduction of PVC/BFR *4)
(ISO26000 6.5.3)
76 product groups All 66 product groups 65 product groups The target based on a new standard has been set
We could not achieve the goal in FY2016 because one product group (fuel cell) was introduced to the market ahead of the original schedule. We plan to develop next-generation products by employing alternative materials within FY2017.
From FY2017, we will promote the use of alternatives to the four phthalate esters*5 which will be subjected to regulation in various countries.
Management of Chemicals in products
  • *1 [CO2 emissions of assumed substitute products] − [CO2 emissions of shipped products]
  • *2 [Amount of recyclable plastics] / [amount of plastics used for products] × 100
  • *3 Special uses are excluded.
  • *4 Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most common plastics and is used in a wide range of products. However, there is concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal, as well as the toxicity of certain plasticizers (e.g., phthalate esters) added to PVCs. Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) are used for plastics to make them noncombustible. Some BFRs are raising health concerns while others persist in the environment or are bioaccumulative. There is also concern over the generation of hazardous substances due to inappropriate treatment at disposal.
  • *5 Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, butyl benzyl phthalate, di-n-butyl phthalate, diisobutyl phthalate. Used mainly as a plasticizer for plastics (cable coatings, etc.) and other materials; there is concern about its effects on the human body.
