Toshiba Group is working to reduce waste generation by minimizing the volume of waste generated per unit activity, which indicates business process efficiency improvement, as well as by reducing the total volume of waste to a level that does not exceed the Earth's environmental capacity.
In FY2022, the volume of waste (excluding that of objects with value) totaled 30,000 tons. The total volume of waste generated per unit production was 101% compared to that of FY2021 level, which means that the target was not achieved.
We are first focusing on not generating waste and aiming to improve the recycling rate. At each stage of design, development, production, and distribution, we give thorough consideration to reducing, recycling, and facilitating waste disposal. We monitor the composition of waste and promote the reduction or elimination of hazardous substance content, as well as thorough sorting and storage.
In addition, the total volume of hazardous waste*1 is 3,100 tons in FY2022, the recycling rate*2 is 83%, and the volume discharged and moved*3 is 744,052 kg.
