Toshiba Group is proactively promoting energy-saving measures at its offices as well as business complex and production sites in Japan and abroad. In terms of energy-derived CO2 emissions from the use of electricity, we are promoting to turn off electricity at our offices, and in business complex and production sites as well as making efforts to improve production efficiency as an energy-saving measure and to introduce renewable energy at our business and production sites. In particular, we have been proactively installing systems to capture and/or remove sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in particular, which is used to insulate heavy electric machinery, and perfluorocarbons (PFCs), which are used to produce semiconductors. By steadily taking measures to improve our production processes, the Group is contributing to reduce the total volume of GHG* emissions generated from our business activities.
In FY2022, total GHG emissions were 0.77 million t-CO2, so we achieved our target of 1.02 million t-CO2. Energy-derived CO2 emissions per unit activity were 87% compared to the FY2021.
Going forward, Toshiba Group will contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society by working to significantly reduce GHG emissions through the promotion of measures such as expansion of the use of renewable energy at our sites worldwide based on our long-term GHG emissions reduction target. As a new initiative under the Seventh Environmental Action Plan, Toshiba Group will also focus on the reduction of GHG emissions through the use of its digital technologies that enable remote operation, automation, and intelligence.
