Contribution to the Environment

Through our products, services, and solutions, we contribute to environmental impact reduction for society. The amount of CO2 emission reduction at our customers’ sites in the fiscal year ended March 2018, which totaled 3,280,000 tons of CO2 , is equivalent to approximately 1/400 of all CO2 emissions in Japan (approx. 1.3 billion tons of CO2 ). The scope of these estimates has been expanded to reflect the international expansion of our businesses.

Note: 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. Differences were estimated as reduction effects with the assumption that customers did not adopt our products, services or solutions at their sites. Global effects of reduction are partially based on our own concept.
