Contribution to the Environment

We offer products, services, and solutions that help our customers reduce CO2 emissions at their sites. We strive to reduce society’s environmental impacts by providing automation equipment and systems for process optimization and stabilization, energy management, and other solutions to achieve a reduction in energy use and CO2 emissions by way of maintenance and services on those equipment and systems after delivery. We help to reduce environmental impacts throughout our customer’s product life cycles.
The total annual effective reduction of CO2 at customers’ sites for the FY2020 was 2.94 million metric tons. This corresponds to approximately 1/400 of the total CO2 emitted in Japan each year (approx. 1.2 billion metric tons).
The reduction in CO2 is 0.07 million metric tons less than the reduction of 3.01 million metric tons achieved in the FY2019, but this is because of business changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and a lower CO2 emission factor for electric power due to the increased adoption of renewable energy sources. By FY2030, we aim to increase this effective reduction to 3.40 million metric tons of CO2. We have included overseas customer sites in these estimates since FY2014 in line with our global business expansion.

* In order to assess the contribution to the reduction of environmental impact quantitatively, the effects were classified into the three categories of 1) effects from automation, 2) effects from energy management, and 3) effects from maintenance services.
* A third party reviewed estimation method.
