Environmental Management

Environmental Vision

The Toshiba Carrier Group's environmental activities are founded on the Environmental Grand Design formulated by Toshiba Corporation.

The Environmental Grand Design consists of six performance areas that should be achieved by FY2016 and four environmental strategies: expansion of ECPs, high-efficiency manufacturing, compliance and management, and communication. Combined, they aim to unite corporate management and environmental management.

Furthermore, Toshiba Carrier Group follows a new Environmental Management Concept called "T-COMPASS", which takes the first letter of the four directions North, South, East and West as symbols for E: Energy, W: Water, S: Substance and N: Natural resource.
