Initiatives for Reducing CO2
Taking various energy-saving measures and reducing our CO2 emissions per unit of net production
The Ryobi Group has outlined the two goals of reducing its CO2 emissions per unit of net production 13% compared with fiscal 2013 by December 2021 and reducing its CO2 emissions per unit of net production 1% compared with the previous fiscal year.
In fiscal 2020, CO2 emissions per unit of net production were 93.0% of fiscal 2013 levels (a 7.0% reduction) and 105.1% of previous fiscal year levels (a 5.1% increase).
We are working to improve emissions per unit of production by taking such various measures as switching fuels at aluminum melting furnaces, improving the peripheral equipment for processing machinery, preventing heat dissipation from holding furnaces for die casting machines, enhancing the efficiency of compressors, and repairing compressed air leaks.
Initiatives for Waste
Reducing waste that needs to be sent to landfills
In fiscal 2020, the amount of waste emitted in Japan was 6,092 tonnes.
By thoroughly separating waste to reduce the amount sent to landfills, we achieved a recycling rate of 99.2%, and our final disposal rate was 1.5%.
Initiatives for Effectively Using Water Resources
Continuing to promote initiatives to reduce water use
In fiscal 2020, domestic water use was around 1,152 thousand cubic meters.
We will continue working to reduce water use through appropriate management efforts, such as recycling industrial water and regularly checking flow meters in order to take swift action against water leaks.
Initiatives Related to Distribution
Building an efficient distribution system
With the aim of rationalizing energy use, we are working to build an efficient distribution system and reduce the amount of energy (fuel) used to transport goods.
In fiscal 2020, the amount of energy used to transport goods in Japan was 3,031 kl in crude oil equivalent. In addition, the amount of crude oil needed to transport 1 tonne of goods 1 km decreased 26.4%.
We will continue working to increase transport efficiency mainly by reviewing shipping locations with an eye to reducing transportation distance, revising packing methods to improve loading efficiency, and cutting back on unnecessary movement between warehouses.
Initiatives for Hazardous Substances
Reducing emissions of hazardous substances into the air
In fiscal 2020, the amount of substances we handled in Japan that are subject to the PRTR Act was 19.7 tonnes, and 4.7 tonnes were emitted into the air.
The amount of substances handled increased 11.2 tonnes compared with fiscal 2019 because of the inclusion of Methylnaphthalene contained in A heavy oil into the scope of calculation in fiscal 2020.
