Medium-Term Environmental Plan

Medium-Term Environmental Plan

In fiscal 2018, which was the last year of the Sixth Medium-Term Environmental Plan period, energy conservation activities progressed as planned, but due to the drought in the region where hydroelectric power plants were located, the amount of renewable energy generated was low and the intensity was below the initial target. On the other hand, the final disposal amount of waste decreased much more than the target, and the amount of PRTR substances did not reach the target, but was reduced from the previous fiscal year.
According to the Seventh Medium-Term Environmental Plan which starts in fiscal 2019, we strive to innovate systematic production processes in conjunction with our management plan, Denka Value-Up, to further promote energy saving and to reduce environmentally hazardous substances.

  • *1 Standard calorific value of purchased energy has been set at 9.484 MJ/kWh in accordance with Keidanren’s Commitment to a Low Carbon Society;
  • *1 figures include energy consumption attributable to and CO2emissions from non-manufacturing sectors (Head Office, branches, etc.)
  • *2 CO2emissions intensity is calculated based on the converted production volume of benchmark products
Fiscal 2019 Responsible Care (RC) Activity Policies (environment related)

In line with the Responsible Care Global Charter, we will engage in dialogue with stakeholders to accurately assess society’s expectations in addition to maintaining strict compliance and preventing environmental pollution. As our goal is to contribute to environmental conservation initiatives aimed at realizing a sustainable society, we will promote RC activities in all aspects of our business operations, ranging from raw materials procurement through manufacturing and storage to distribution to usage and disposal. In these ways, we will fulfill our social responsibilities.

Priority Initiatives
Promote energy-saving
  1. 1. Commercialize energy-saving solutions at the earliest possible date and explore new themes
Promote resource recycling
  1. 1. Promote the recycling of in-house waste and maintain zero emissions (recycling rate of 99.0% or more)
  2. 2. Reduce waste plastic through thorough 3R activities and development of easy-to-recycle products
Establish a long-term vision for measures against global warming
  1. 1. Reduce 2,000 thousand tons-CO2of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050
Key themes for each business base
  1. 1. Omi Plant: Reduce odor through the systematic improvement of facilities treating wastewater from chloroprene production lines
  2. 2. Chiba Plant: Systematically reduce VOC emissions according to chemical hazard information
