Setting Targets and Evaluating Results

In August 2005, the JAE Group integrated its domestic environmental management systems into a single, multi-site system that sets targets and objectives for the entire JAE Group, while taking into consideration the unique initiatives implemented at each site.

Overview of FY 2009 Activities

In FY 2009, the six targets of measures against climate change, increasing green procurement, reducing raw materials use, reducing chemical substances, reducing waste material, and lessening environmental impacts by promoting eco-friendly designs, were raised as the environmental goals of the JAE Group. In August, the originally planned targets of reducing CO2 emissions from the use of energy and cutting CO2 generation during materials manufacturing by reducing the amount of materials used were revised upwards from 1,646 tons to 1,949 tons and from 175 tons to 318 tons, respectively. Overall, the targets were mostly achieved, but the rate achieved for the reduction in average CO2 emissions per unit of real sales, which is one of the targets of the measures against climate change, was only 80% of the targeted level due to the effects of reduced production. The following table shows the figures in detail.

Reduce waste materials Reduction in amount of waste plastics through recovery of valuable plastics (JAE) 2,480 kg or less 790.8 kg
Improvement of recovery of valuable molding waste (HAE) 45% or more 46.3%
Reduce environmental impact by promoting eco-friendly designs Confirm environmental compatibility of newly developed products and applied it to designs (JAE) 100% implementation 100% implementation
Promote resource conservation and energy-saving designs for existing products (JAE) 5% reduction 22.6% reduction
Develop long-life technology for metal (JAE) Develop long-life technology Applied to mass produced products
Note: In the above table, "○" indicates 100% attainment of target value, while "×" indicates an attainment of 90% or less.

 

Future Efforts

For FY 2010, the JAE Group has set the same environmental targets across the group as in FY 2009, and is now working toward attaining them.
Environmental Objective Plan Sites
