Reductions in CO2 Emissions by Eco-products

(1) Eco-products (Power supply): Contributions by products and services associated with power supply
We contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by developing renewable energy technologies and improving the efficiency of power infrastructure facilities such as power plants.

In FY2019, as a result of developing and spreading the use of a wide range of energy technologies including high-efficiency thermal power generation systems, we reduced CO2 emissions since FY2017 by 16.21 million t-CO2 (cumulative total), achieving the target for the year. In FY2020, we aim to achieve a cumulative total reduction of over 16.30 million t-CO2.

Going forward, in addition to focusing on the development and provision of wide-ranging renewable energy technologies, we will continue to develop and provide storage battery solutions and hydrogen power storage systems designed to realize a stable power supply toward the large-scale introduction of renewable energy.

(2) Eco-products (Power consumption): Contributions by products and services associated with power consumption
We contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by improving the energy-saving performance of products and services associated with power consumption, including social infrastructure products, services and office equipment.

In FY2019, as a result of expanding the provision of products and services with enhanced energy-saving performance, we reduced CO2 emissions since FY2017 by 5.48 million t-CO2 (cumulative total), achieving the target for the year. In FY2020, we aim to achieve a cumulative total reduction of over 6.30 million t-CO2.

Going forward, we aim to spread the use of products that have large energy-saving effects, such as industrial air conditioners and LED lighting. Furthermore, we will expand our business in the global market for system products mainly in the social infrastructure domain, particularly in emerging countries that have rapidly increasing demand for products that can achieve significant reductions in CO2 emissions.

In addition to these initiatives, we will work to reduce GHG emissions from products and services based on the reduction targets for the entire Toshiba Group set out in accordance with the Paris Agreement in order to promote the decarbonization of society.
