Environmental Action Plan (Targets and Performance)

Under its Environmental Vision 2050, Casio has established Environmental Action Plan targets from a global perspective, and is carrying out environmental activities accordingly. Here are the targets and performance for fiscal 2016, along with the targets for fiscal 2017 based on the current results.

The Casio Environmental Action Plan targets are numerical targets based on total figures for the group as a whole. These targets form the basis for the numerical targets for environmental activities established at individual group companies and worksites. The Casio Environmental Action Plan targets are revised in accordance with and to match changes in the business environment and the business structure or the demands of society.

The deadlines for a number of numerical targets came up in fiscal 2016. Major disparities and overachievement were observed in several areas, showing that there is room for improvements in the methods that have been used to set targets. To set targets for fiscal 2017 and beyond, Casio is taking the time to perform detailed analyses to ensure that targets are appropriate. Meanwhile, Casio will keep the targets that had deadlines in fiscal 2016 the same for fiscal 2017.

The policy is for group companies and sites that achieved their targets for fiscal 2016 to maintain that performance, and for those that did not achieve their targets to keep working to do so.
