Environmental targets / Perspective Reduction of environmental burden Management of chemical substance & resource saving


The Kurabo Group has been endeavoring to constantly supply high quality products and services to the market in its efforts in contributing to the improvement of life and culture, and to correctly grasp to reduce environmental load imposed by its business activities. 

The Kurabo Group's material flow of fiscal 2016 is shown below:


Environmental targets

We, at Kurabo, have declared the interim environmental targets (3 years) in order to promote the environmental conservation activities in a more systematic manner, and have been working on the prevention of global warming and effective use of resources.
The target of reduction of CO2 emission was carried out on a basic unit basis to raise use efficiency of the energy, which was calculated by dividing the absolute quantity by indices like production volume or others. However, many establishments decreased use of energy efficiency by decrease of production volume compared with FY 2015 that is standard year, the achievement of the target turned out insufficient. Although the reduction of CO2 emission has effect by the change of production volume, we will carry out an energy saving activity and investment continuously to reduce CO2 emission steadily from medium-and-long term point of view.
In regards to promotion of zero emission, we have obtained result enough until now. Therefore we were active with the target of 0.1% improvement of recycling rate to maintain the present condition, and to improve even a little. However, the recycling rate becomes 97.4%, same as the standard year. But the establishments which achieved zero emission become 27 establishments, increased three establishments from last year. Therefore, we obtained the result of the activity substantially.
