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 2008 Activities

In FY 2008, four environmental targets were set for the JAE Group, namely fighting global warming, reducing raw materials use, increasing green procurement, and reducing environmental impact by lowering defect rates. Although partly accounted for by a dramatic reduction in production due to slumping demand, the company believes that the results can be seen as successful overall since targets for all items were at least 90% achieved. Among the items that did not reach 100%, however, was the reduction in average CO2 emissions per unit of real sales, which came in at 91%. 

 
Activity Objective Target Results Evaluation (note)

Note: ○ indicates a target rate achievement of 100% or more, while △ indicates 90% or more.

Future Efforts

The JAE Group has set the following shared environmental objectives for FY2009. 

Environmental Objective Plan Sites
Fight against global warming Reduction in average CO2 emissions per unit of real sales (1990 level) JAE, HAE, YAE, FAE, and SAE
Reduction through measures against CO2 emissions caused by energy usage
Curbing CO2 emissions caused by materials production by cutting materials usage
Reduce use of materials Reduce use of molding materials, metal raw materials, reel materials, and metals
Reduce use of chemical substances Select three items at each site and aim for 10% cuts from FY 2007 levels
Reduce waste materials Enable recycling for cleaning fluids and promote recovery of valuable waste plastics (including trays)
Practice green procurement Check environmental quality at suppliers
Reduce environmental impacts by promoting eco-friendly designs Achieve 100% environment database registration, reduce use of molding materials by improving die designs, and reduce use of raw materials by reusing materials JAE, HAE, and YAE
