Environmental Targets and Activity Results

In an effort to lower its environmental impact and promote the production of environmentally friendly products, the JAE Group works under ISO14001 certification. Respecting the autonomy of each site, the Group sets environmental targets and management targets for operations on an annual basis and carries out activities as the JAE Group in Japan in accordance with medium-term plans. In fiscal 2021, its main activities are as shown in the table below.
 These activities function together to improve both production efficiency and quality. Not only did we benefit from activities such as resource recycling, including the reduction of chemical substance and raw material use, and the recycling of waste material and its conversion into a valuable resource; we also reduced costs and further promoted environment management.
 Improvements to the energy use primary unit carried out to fight climate change — i.e., higher energy use efficiency relative to production output — meant that we significantly surpassed our goal. We will consider a transition to renewable energy while promoting efficient energy use in order to continue raising the efficiency of our manufacturing activities.
