Environmentally Conscious Products manufacturing engineering


Toward the "environmental vision 2050" realization of the Toshiba group, the Corporate Manufacturing Engineering Center promotes creating and providing Environmentally Conscious Products manufacturing engineering as the production engineering research and development base of the Toshiba group.

An action is pushed forward in concepts of three aspects, "Green of Process (environmental consideration of manufacturing) ", “Green of Product (environmental consideration of products)” and “Green by Technology (energy, environmental technology)” and “Green Management" that promote the base activity of the environmental management. “Engineering and structure of manufacturing" in consideration for environment on products and business activities are expressed from three viewpoints: prevention of the global warming, effective use of resources, and management of chemical materials.

(1) Environmentally Conscious Products research theme
The themes that has big impacts to environment are manifested and promoted, while wide products of the Toshiba group are supported and research themes of various phases from basics to applications are worked on.

(2) Environmentally Conscious Products facilities development
Manufacturing facilities for the Toshiba group are placed with "products" of the corporate manufacturing engineering center, and environmental harmony type facilities development are promoted. In correspondence with environmental laws regulation, green procurement and component chemical substance management are performed and product assessment is carried out.
