With regard to product groups such as LED downlights, industrial motors and HDDs for which CO2 emissions during use account for the largest percentage of emissions generated throughout product lifecycles, improving energy-saving performance leads to reductions in CO2 emissions. Toshiba Group helps reduce CO2 emissions by developing and providing advanced energy-saving technologies.
We will contribute to reducing CO2 emissions by 57 million t-CO2 in the 3 years from FY2021 to FY2023 by improving the energy-saving performance of products and services associated with power consumption, including social infrastructure products, services and office equipment.
In FY2022, as a result of expanding the provision of products and services with enhanced energy-saving performance, we reduced CO2 emissions by 37.79 million t-CO2, falling short of the reduction target of 41 million or more under the Seventh Environmental Action Plan. In FY2023, we will continue to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions from products and services associated with power consumption. To this end, we will expand our business for system products mainly in the social infrastructure domain, aiming to spread the use of products and services that have large energy-saving effects.
Through these efforts, Toshiba Group will promote reductions in emissions from products and services, to contribute to realizing a carbon neutral society.
