Contribution to the Environment

For the year ended March 31, 2017, we calculated the effect of our businesses in reducing CO2 emissions at our customers' sites. The total CO2 reduction under review comes to 3,210 thousand tons, equivalent to about one 400th of the approximately 1.3 billion tons emitted during the year in Japan. In light of the global expansion of our business, we are expanding the scope of our calculations to abroad.

Note: For the calculations, we categorized CO2 data into three areas—reduction resulting from automation, from energy management, and from maintenance services—and calculated the amount of CO2 reduction compared with the results if our products and solutions had not been used at our customers’ sites.
