With the goal of "contributing to the realization of a sustainable society through environmental management which aims to create enriched value and to ensure harmony with the earth," Environmental Future Vision 2050 aims to realize a sustainable society--in other words, a decarbonized society, a resource circulating society, and a society in harmony with nature. We will promote the implementation of initiatives in three areas: "response to climate change," "response to the circular economy," and "consideration of ecosystems" so as to realize the ideal situation in 2050.
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Co., Ltd. will contribute to society by providing environmentally friendly products, reducing the environmental impact and risks associated with its business activities, and conducting environmental activities that are rooted in local communities and society in line with "Toshiba Group's Environmental Future Vision 2050".
Toshiba Group's greenhouse gas reduction targets approved by Science Based Targets initiative.
The Science Based Targets initiative has approved Toshiba Group's greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets for FY2030 as fully meeting science-based targets(*1) for "holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2℃ above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 ℃," as defined by the Paris Agreement(*2).
Toshiba Group's 3 targets (For all items below, the base year is FY2019) ：
Scope1: Amount of direct emissions through fuel use at Toshiba Group
Scope2: Amount of indirect emissions through use of electricity and heat purchased by Toshiba Group
Scope3: Amount of indirect emissions generated by Toshiba's value chain (raw materials procurement, distribution, sales, disposal, etc.) outside Scopes 1 and 2
Products and services associated with power supply: power generation plants, etc.
Products and services associated with power consumption: social infrastructure products, building-related products (air-conditioners, lighting equipment, elevators and escalators), retail and printing equipment, power devices, etc.
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Co., Ltd. will contribute to the achievement of Toshiba Group's goals by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from business activities under Scope 1 and 2, and by providing equipment, systems, and services for power generating and transmitting systems and energy management technology under Scope 3.
*1. Science- based targets are scientifically grounded GHG reduction targets set by companies on a medium- to long-term basis in order to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2℃ above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 ℃. Science-based targets are validated by the SBT initiative.
*2. An international framework adopted at the twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) that seeks to reduce GHG emissions.
