Medium-Term Environmental Plan

Eighth Medium-Term Environmental Plan (FY 2018 to FY 2020)

chieved excellent results such as a 91% achievement rate of the reduction target for CO2 emissions from energy generation and meeting energy usage reduction targets through steady energy-saving activities and other efforts.
However, a fire that occurred at the Uji Plant in January 2019 increased the amount of defective goods for disposal, and the impact of this and other factors resulted in an increase in the disposal volume of industrial waste. Consequently, there were large gaps between our targets and the actual results for three out of the five issues.

Ninth Medium-Term Environmental Plan (FY 2021 to FY 2023)

Leveraging the results of the Eighth Medium-Term Environmental Plan, we formulated a new three-year plan (Ninth Medium-Term Environmental Plan), which we started in FY 2021. The issues are carried forward from the Eighth Medium-Term Environmental Plan, and the targets have been set by reviewing the standard year and target values.
