│Overview of fiscal 2021 performance

In fiscal 2021, environmental accounting showed that investment in environmental conservation was about the same as in the previous fiscal year, and that costs and the economic benefits (real effects) associated with environmental conservation measures decreased.

Investments in environmental conservation, including energy saving systems, were valued at ¥14 million. The costs of environmental conservation included ¥467 million for recycling products, parts, and toner cartridges and other consumables and ¥342 million for energy saving, air and water pollution measures and the like, bringing the total to ¥809 million. The economic benefits associated with environmental conservation measures were ¥479 million due to real effects including business revenue from recycling activities.

Moving forward, Casio will accurately ascertain and disclose the effects of its environmental management activities from an economic perspective and will strive to engage in efficient and effective environmental conservation efforts.
