Commitment for environment

Conducts its corporate activities aiming at coexistence and harmony among human beings,carbon and nature and contributing to preserving the global environments.

To begin with, Toyo Tanso believes industry of the 21st century must show concern for the global environment. Carbon is the second most abundant element on earth after silicon, nonetheless it is a limited resource and thereby requires first and foremost that recycling be promoted. With regard to waste generated in our manufacturing processes, we are directing production engineering and research and development with our minds fixed on minimizing -- if not completely eliminating -- waste generation along production lines. In an effort to sustain a good global environment, department in charge of Environmental Safety is watching the amount of waste generated and the corresponding reduction measures taken by our various departments. At the same time, the effective use of waste graphite material is a development theme in R & D, and we have implemented activities to raise the awareness of environmental protection amongst our entire workforce. It is management policy at Toyo Tanso to act as a responsible eco-friendly company as we go about our business everyday.

Our activities for ISO14001

Our environmental management system, ISO14001, is one of our business management systems.
By integrating and collaborating with other business processes, we will contribute to the creation of a sustainable society by reducing energy consumption, including reducing environmental burden.

Our activities for ISO14001

About reduction of greenhouse gases emissions

We recognize that climate change is a serious issue that will affect society in the future.
All of our employees strive to raise awareness of environmental maintenance by working to improve the efficiency and reduce energy use in manufacturing processes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions such as CO₂.
In addition, based on the basic concept of ISO14001, an international standard for environmental management, we comply with various environmental laws and regulations in each country, and thoroughly engage in resource conservation activities and management of environmental pollutants by reducing industrial waste.

Response to the TCFD

We have supported the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). In addition, we are preparing for information disclosure with the disclosure framework (governance, strategy, risk management, indicators, and goals for climate-related risks and opportunities) recommended by TCFD.

Management of environmentally harmful substances

With the market demanding adequate responses to global regulations on specified chemical substances, we gather, organize, and monitor up-to-date information on related laws and regulations under the leadership of our environmental management department. Moreover, in addition to implementing adequate responses in relevant products, we aim to minimize risks to human health and the environment through sound management and appropriate communication of information regarding the chemical substances included in our products.
