Environmental Preservation Efforts and Results

Actions and Performance in FY2018

Targets in FY2018 were the reductions of energy consumption, CO2 emissions, water consumption and industrial waste emissions, per production quantity, by more than 5% compared to those of the previous year, according to the global integration of ISO14001 certificate among the Kyocera group.
As for the FY2018 achievement rate for the reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions targets, both were approximately a 120% reduction; industrial waste emissions was reduced by approximately 140% (which greatly surpassed the target); and the water consumption reduction fell slightly short of the target at 98.3%, due to the increased usage of daily life water according to the rapid increase in the number of employees.

Promoting Energy-saving in the Plant

We have worked on reducing unnecessary electricity consumption by installing motion sensors for the lighting in the hallways, which turns off the lights automatically, if there is nobody in the hallways.
(More motion sensors will be installed in the future.)
