Group EHS Management Structure

The Group EHS committee is quarterly held to promote the Group EHS management that consists of the EHS management representative of each group company and the person in charge of each subcommittee meeting.

As of January 1, 2019

Group EHS Target and Performance

In Green Value 21 Phase IV (FY2018~2020), we have formulated a new EHS framework based on one of pillars of new medium-term management plan, “Promotion of CSR management focusing on ESG”. In this framework, we set a long-term goal, 20% reduction of CO2 emissions per unit of sales from our total value chain by fiscal 2026 compared with fiscal 2014 and so we are implementing wide-ranging measures. We calculate value-chain CO2 emissions by adding CO2 emissions such as those produced by SCREEN products during customer use (Scope 3) to facility CO2 emissions (Scope 1+2).

Key Measures Description of Activities Targets for fiscal year ending March 2020 Results for fiscal year ended March 2018
Environmental management Environmental conservation Reduce CO2 emissions Reduce unit rate by 6% or more*1 (emission intensity = 8.64) 2 27% reduction (emission intensity = 6.72)
Reduce energy consumption (in crude oil quivalents) Reduce unit rate by 6% or more*1 (emission intensity = 3.92) 2 24% reduction (emission intensity = 3.16)
Reduce waste*2 Reduce unit rate by 6% or more*1 (emission intensity = 199) 8% reduction (emission intensity = 193)
