Depletion of Resources
Our Group contributes to society by lowering defect rates in our manufacturing processes, reducing waste generated and further treating wastes to enable recycling, as measures to combat the depletion of resources.
And we contributes to the resolution of water resource issues by recognizing the tap water and well water used in our business activities as water resources, and by undertaking the reduction of usage, as measures to combat the depletion of resources.
Reduction of Waste Generated
In fiscal 2016, the waste emission basic unit was 0.061 tons/million yen, worsened by 2.8% as compared with fiscal 2015. Such worsened figure is thought to be caused by temporary emission increase as a result of establishment of new plant in addition to the emission increase as a result of steep production rise.
Reducing the Amounts of Tap and Well Water Used
In fiscal 2016, our water usage basic unit was 6.32 m3/million yen. Water usage basic unit was improved by 11.6% compared with fiscal 2015, which is resulted from conserving water by changing manufacturing conditions and upgrading and updating to equipment with a high water-savings effect.
