Company introduces a new concept of environmental management “T-Compass”
Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced publication of the English edition of the Toshiba Group Environmental Report 2013. The report includes coverage of environmental efforts in manufacturing processes, environmentally conscious products, environmental technology, and “T-Compass,” the new concept of environmental management that Toshiba Group has introduced in this fiscal year.
In T-Compass, the letters of the four cardinal points—north, south, east and west—represent environmental issues Toshiba Group is addressing: Natural resources (Minimizing the amount of natural resources consumed) ; Substances (Minimizing the risks involved in chemical substances) ; Energy (Responding to climate change and energy issues) ; and Water (Minimizing the amount of water resources consumed) . By presenting its environmental contributions in concrete terms in the four major domains, Toshiba Group will explain simply about its activities to stakeholders inside and outside the Group. The ultimate objective is to secure a position as one of the world’s foremost eco-companies by strategically addressing new global trends, including the Scope3 Standard and environmental footprints, and to advance environmental management to new levels.
