Medium-term Environmental Targets

The effect of global warming on the occurrence of abnormal weather in recent years such as heavy rainfall is considered to be substantial. CO2 produced from company activities has a serious impact on the advancement of global warming and global initiatives are now required toward reducing the CO2 emissions volume, such as the Paris Agreement adopted in December 2015. In addition to the single year targets for fiscal 2018, Dexerials has established mid-term environmental targets for the three-year fiscal period between 2019 and 2021 as initiatives toward realizing a sustainable society. We are promoting systematic initiatives toward achieving our targets, including restrictions on CO2 emissions volumes toward the prevention of warming, promoting the use of recycled waste, and reducing the volume of water used.

Environmental targets

2018 Targets Mid-term targets (2019-2021)
Warming ・1% reduction to YoY CO2 emissions through business activities ・Continuation of 1% reduction to YoY CO2 emissions volume from business activities
Industrial waste ・Continuation of zero emissions* ・Continuation of zero emissions
・Continuation of reduction of YoY usage volume
Water ・Reduction of YoY usage volume
・Compliance with independent standards for water quality
・Continuation of reduction of YoY usage volume
・Compliance with independent standards for water quality
VOC ・Equal or reduced YoY usage volume ・Equal or reduced YoY usage volume

*Definition of zero emissions: “Zero waste emissions” is defined as a reuse/recycling ratio of 99.5% or more.
