Environmental Targets, Performance, and Evaluation
The Tamura Group is working on environmental protection under its three group-wide targets of “increasing in percentage sales of eco-design products,” “reducing of substances with environmental load,” and “reducing power consumption.”
Tamura Group Environmental Targets, Performance, and Evaluation
The Tamura Group has taken the initiative in environmental protection by setting three common targets: “increasing the percentage sales of eco-design products,” “reducing substances with environmental load,” and “reducing power consumption,” which are the main measures specified in its environmental policy.
In FY2016, we attained the preset target values for “increasing the percentage sales of eco-design products” and “reducing substances with environmental load”. However, we failed to achieve the target value for “reducing power consumption”. In this regard, we are determined to further work on our current energy-saving activities and the introduction of energy-saving equipment.
Long-term reduction target for greenhouse effect gas emission
The Tamura Group, in consideration of change in CO2 emission factor, has adopted power consumption as the index in FY2013, and set a new target of 15% reduction in FY2020 compared to FY2005.
The Group is making exhaustive efforts toward the realization of a low-carbon society.
Summary of the Tamura Group's Environmental Performance
The Tamura Group has a quantitative grasp of environmental load generated through its business operations and is working to reduce environmental load in various aspects of its business activities through development of premier eco-design products as well as improvements in productivity and distribution efficiency.
