Creating sustainable workplaces
Sustainability is embedded in our corporate philosophy and we put concern for the environment as a priority in all our business activities. This is to protect people’s safety and health as well as the world’s natural resources.
In practice, our environmental commitments translate into a broad program of global sustainable business and environmental activities. Our initiatives are aimed at realising a low-carbon, recycling-based and natural symbiosis society. These activities are divided into the areas of sustainability management, environmentally conscious products (ECPs), ecologically compatible processes and sustainability awareness.
Toshiba specifies clear objectives for its business activities, products and services. These targets include lower emissions and reductions in impact on biodiversity and other environmental aspects. As a globally operating corporate group, we not only comply with applicable laws and regulations in countries all over the world, but also with a number of voluntary industrial environmental protection guidelines.
Environmentally Conscious Products
As a manufacturing company, Toshiba is in a strong position to enhance overall sustainability by reducing environmental impacts throughout its product lifecycles. With green procurement of environmentally compatible materials and parts, energy conservation and abolition of certain chemical substances, we systematically improve the ecological balance of our products. In addition, we consistently apply the 3Rs of sustainability – reduce, reuse, recycle – wherever possible in our operations. As a result, we are able to deliver recognised ECPs on a global scale.
Taking it a step further, Toshiba's award-winning e-STUDIO3508LP is the world's first eco-friendly MFP can reuse the same paper up to five times. Like any normal multi-function printer, the Toshiba e-STUDIO3508LP can print on to normal office paper or even recycled copier paper. However, this system can then erase the toner on the paper and print on the same sheet again and again.
Ecologically Compatible Processes
In processes as well, Toshiba works to conserve resources and energy, while correctly controlling chemical substances. We continuously enhance the ecological compatibility of our production, logistics, marketing and servicing, in every region in which we operate.
With environmental education, awareness campaigns and active, wide-scale disclosure of internal and external environmental activities, Toshiba seeks to expand each employee’s environmental consciousness. In addition, we take part in society-wide sustainability projects in cooperation with administrations, communities and other partners.
