Medium- to Long-term Vision

In response to climate change,
we will reduce GHG emissions from products and services associated with power supply
by 50% (from the FY2019 level) by FY2030

as well as reduce GHG emissions from products and services associated with power consumption
by 14% (from the FY2019 level) by FY2030,

thereby contributing to the achievement of a net zero GHG emissions society toward 2050 throughout the entire value chain.

FY2019 Achievements

Reduction of CO2 emissions from products and services*
Products and services associated with power supply:
16.21 million t-CO2

Products and services associated with power consumption:
5.48 million t-CO2

Amount of resources saved in products*
0.3 million tons

Amount of recycled plastics used in products*
2,636 tons

Completed the substitution of four phthalates used in regulated products for the European market.

Future Challenges and Approaches

Under the "Environmental Future Vision 2050," Toshiba Group aims to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by reducing GHG emissions during the use of products and services from a long-term perspective and promoting business that involves climate change adaptation measures and contributes to the circular economy.

* The data is the cumulative total from FY2017.

Toshiba Group aims to contribute to resolving climate change and other environmental issues by continuing to improve the environmental performance of all products and services that we develop.

First, we identify the level of environmental performance required to resolve issues facing society and customers during use of products and services, set "eco-targets" to achieve the required level of performance, and incorporate such targets into product specifications. Then, we confirm that our products and services comply with all relevant laws and regulations. Meanwhile, based on the three elements of ECPs* (Toshiba environmental standards), we define and manage ECP standards for the environmental performance to achieve at each stage of the lifecycle of products and services in order to ensure their quality with respect to the environment. From among such products and services, we choose those with the highest levels of environmental performance at the time of product release and certify them as Excellent ECPs within Toshiba Group.

Toshiba Environmental Standards

- Assessment based on the three elements of ECPs -

Environmentally Conscious Products (ECPs) are designed to minimize environmental impacts throughout all stages of their lifecycles, including during procurement of materials, manufacture, distribution, use, disposal, and recycling.

ECPs have three elements: mitigation of climate change, efficient use of resources, and management of chemicals. Toshiba Group sets its own environmental standards (ECP standards) for each product model to assess overall environmental performance, which includes all three of these elements. Environmental assessments are performed during development of every product to check not only whether the product complies with laws and regulations but also to check whether the product meets the ECP standards.
