Efforts to Reduce Greenhouse Gas (CO2) Emissions

By fiscal 2020, we aim to reduce CO2 emissions from fuels defined in Japan's Law Concerning the Rational Use of Energy to 80% of fiscal 1990 emission levels. In fiscal 2010, we added CO2 reduction to the list of evaluation parameters in ZΣ*, and are working to reduce CO2 emissions across all our operations.
CO2 emissions in fiscal 2015 were approximately 553,000 tons.

*ZΣ: Initiatives representative of Zeon aimed at utilizing the Zeon Group's entire strength to improve our corporate health. These efforts used to be called the “ZΣ Activities,” but since the efforts have progressed and become established, we decided to change the name to “ZΣ.”

Efforts to Conserve Energy

In fiscal 2015, we consumed an amount of energy equivalent to burning approximately 215,000 kiloliters of crude oil, or 68% of the amount of energy consumed in fiscal 1990. We plan to improve unit energy consumption by an average of 1% per year going forward.

Energy Consumption and Unit Consumption Index

In terms of the unit energy consumption index, in fiscal 2009, we achieved the JCIA target (fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2012) to reach 80% of the fiscal 1990 level, which we maintained until fiscal 2015. From fiscal 2010 onwards, we have been promoting an improvement plan to reduce the average annual unit energy consumption by 1% each year.
