Increased reduction of GHG emissions by products and services

(1) Eco-products (Power Supply): Contributions by Products and Services Associated with Power Supply
We contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by developing renewable energy technologies and improving the efficiency of power infrastructure facilities such as power plants.

In FY2020, as a result of developing and spreading the use of a wide range of energy technologies including high-efficiency thermal power generation systems, we reduced CO2 emissions since FY2017 by 21.61 million t-CO2 (cumulative total), achieving the reduction target of more than 16.30 million t-CO2 (cumulative total) set in the Sixth Environmental Action Plan. We have rolled out the new Seventh Environmental Action Plan starting from FY2021. Under the plan, we will continue to reduce GHG emissions during power supply from thermal power generation and other types of power generation and to manage contribution to GHG reduction by products and services associated with power supply such as hydroelectric, geothermal, and photovoltaic power generation, as part of our efforts to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.

Going forward, in addition to focusing on the development and provision of wide-ranging renewable energy technologies, we will continue to develop and provide storage battery solutions and hydrogen power storage systems designed to realize a stable power supply toward the large-scale introduction of renewable energy.

(2) Eco-products (Power Consumption): Contributions by Products and Services Associated with Power Consumption
We will contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by improving the energy-saving performance of products and services associated with power consumption, including social infrastructure products, services and office equipment.

In FY2020, as a result of expanding the provision of products and services with enhanced energy-saving performance, we reduced CO2 emissions since FY2017 by 6.95 million t-CO2 (cumulative total), achieving the reduction target of more than 6.3 million t-CO2 (cumulative total) set in the Sixth Environmental Action Plan. We have rolled out the new Seventh Environmental Action Plan starting from FY2021. Under the plan, we will continue to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions from products and services associated with power consumption.

Going forward, we aim to spread the use of products and services that have large energy-saving effects, such as industrial air conditioners and LED lighting. Furthermore, we will expand our business for products that can achieve significant reductions in CO2 emissions such as system products mainly in the social infrastructure domain, particularly in emerging countries that have rapidly increasing demand.

We newly added “Contribution to GHG reduction through digital technology” to the activity content of the Seventh Environmental Action Plan. We will also focus on activities to reduce GHG emissions in society by providing customers with services and solutions that utilize digital technology.

Through these efforts, Toshiba Group will promote reductions in emissions from products and services, to contribute to realizing a carbon-neutral society.
