Expectations for Disclosure of User-Friendly Environmental Information

Dialogue with NGOs and SRI fund representatives.

Toshiba invited representatives of environmental NGOs and socially responsible investment (SRI) organizations and held its first stakeholder dialogue in the United States. We obtained sound opinions concerning the future environmental activities of Toshiba America Group.

Policy Position and Effective Communication

"Environmental trends such as climate change, e-waste and water pose a great concern. It's important for Toshiba to communicate clearly its own position on these issues". Regarding "Factor-T", we received the following comment. "Although the stakeholders were impressed with Toshiba's efforts to quantify intangible values, Factor-T can be a challenging concept to grasp. A simplified explanation is needed."

Develop a Comprehensive Supply Chain Strategy

"Companies are increasingly held accountable for supply chain procedures, from sourcing to end-of-life. Toshiba needs to develop a comprehensive supply chain strategy and to communicate this to stakeholders"

Understand Customer Trends

A number of participants highlighted changing customer attitudes and greater concern about social and environmental issues (including business customers, public sector customers and individual consumers) that will have implications for Toshiba's future product development and marketing.
