Environmental Management Structure

Group-wide Structure

Toshiba established an organization that promotes environmental management in 1988 and since then has been developing the Group’s environmental promotion structure. Currently, for matters concerning environmental management, mainly the Corporate Environment Management Office, a corporate staff division, works to formulate and promote important policies, strategies, and measures at the company-wide level under the supervision of the executive in charge of environment in the sustainability promotion structure.

Proposals on Toshiba Group’s various environmental measures and the progress and results of the Environmental Action Plan for the achievement of the environmental vision are deliberated, confirmed, and followed up on in the Corporate Environmental Management Committee meeting (held twice a year), which is comprised of the executive in charge of environment as the chairperson and environmental promotion managers of key Group companies and corporate staff division managers as members. The Committee is endeavoring to improve the quality of Group environmental management while implementing the PDCA cycle.

Among the important environmental measures and policies discussed at Corporate Environmental Management Committee meetings, critical issues related to management are deliberated and reported at the Sustainability Strategy Committee chaired by the President and CEO and held twice a year. These issues are also reported to all directors, including outside directors, at the Board of Directors meetings. What is reported at the Board of Directors meetings is reflected in our Group's management strategy.

With these subcommittees, the Corporate Environment Management Office develops detailed plans, identifies issues, explores solutions to the identified issues, and shares information across the Group. Under the Product Meeting and Business Process Meeting, specialized working groups set themes and engage in activities that cover a wide variety of fields.

Global Environmental Management Structure

Toshiba Group promotes environmental management across the Group in a global basis.
In promoting environmental management, we place importance on worksite environmental efforts as well, and currently, 56 sites of Toshiba Group have become ISO 14001 certified.

Environmental Management Information System

We have developed an Environmental Management Information System in order to collect and manage environmental data required to promote environmental management.

The Environmental Management Information System makes it possible to centrally manage and register not only performance data, such as energy consumption required for business activities and the volume of waste generated from these activities, but also environmental accounting information and the results of site environment audits. It covers all consolidated subsidiaries within the scope of environmental management of Toshiba Group (253 companies in FY2022) and is accessible from countries around the world.
