ISO26000 ITEM Target for the period from fiscal 2011 to 2015 Result in fiscal 2012 Evaluation
The Environment Mitigation of global warming Reduce total CO2 emissons.
japan:13% reduction from the fiscal 2009 level (17% reduction from the fiscal 1990 level)
Overseas:Set emisson reduction targets(in fiscal 2012) 
CO2 emissions from the domestic production bases increased by 13% relative to fiscal 2009, mainly due to the higher emission factor for electricity. ×
Energy conservation:Improve per-unit energy use Improve energy use per unit of production by 3.5% or more every year
Office:1.5% or more improvement
Per-unit energy use:
Decreased by 2.8% year on year at the plants
Increased by 2.5% year on year at the offices
Improve per-unit energy use for the transportation of products by 1% on average every year(Japan) Relative to the baseline year, per-unit energy use decreased by 5% or more on average per year for the past five years.
Zero waste emissions Japan:Achieve periect zero emissions(no landfill waste) At the domestic production bases, the waste landfill rate decreased by 0.23% year on year to 048%.
Reduce the use of packaging materials
Wooden materials:Reduce use by 12.000 tons or more
Other packaging materials:reduce use by 25 tons or more
(Achieve reductions at levels higher than the fiscal 2009 achievement levels)
The use of packaging materials decreased by 5% and the reduction target was thus achieved.
Resource conservation & recycling Reduce water use Water use increased by 5% relative to fiscal 2011. ×
Reduction in substances of concern(SOCs) 10% or more reduction in the amount of major SOCs handled(relative to fiscal 2010) The total amount handled increased by 57% due to the addition of two SOCs handled in the amount of 1 ton or more per year to the calculation target. ×
Reduction in emissions of volatile organic compounds(VOCs) Continue to set management targets
(both in Japan and overseas)
Atmospheric emissions decreased by 3% relative to fiscal 2010.
Expansion of environmentally friendly products Register annually at least 60 products as environmentally friendly products
(by conducting environmental assessments on the products)
The target was attained with the registration of 68 products as environmentally friendly products.
Preventing contamination and promoting green procurement Manage chemical substances contained in products across the supply chain
(Promote green procurement and the management of substances of very high concern)
More surveys were conducted on the newly regulated substances, such as SVHCs subject to the REACH regulation.
Biodiversity conservation Work to conserve biodiversity by setting targets in line with the guidelines on biodiversity The bio-garden “Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods” served as the hub to foster activities.
