Building a Recycling Society: Handling of Waste and Water Resources

Reducing and Recycling Waste

│Reducing and Recycling Waste

Casio promotes the 3Rs in order to contribute to the effective use of limited resources in a way that is of benefit to society. The Company has set a medium- to long-term target to achieve zero emissions by fiscal 2031 for Group-wide waste generated by business activities and is working hard to achieve it.

│Targets and Performance

For fiscal 2021, Casio set the target of reducing the amount of generation of waste, etc. (the total amount of waste and valuables) by 1% compared to fiscal 2020 (equivalent to 3,716 tons), and set the target of achieving a recycling rate of at least 95%. Efforts were made to achieve these targets.

In fiscal 2021, Casio took initiatives to reduce waste and increase the recycling rate as well as improve the way waste is measured. In addition, with the increase in telecommuting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the amount of generation of waste, etc., by plants and offices decreased. The effect resulted in a 13.7% reduction compared to fiscal 2020 (equivalent to 3,239.6 tons). As for the recycling rate, Casio achieved 87.1%, attributable to the fact that waste that could not be recycled was temporarily generated in the process of business site integration for the purpose of improving business efficiency.

For fiscal 2022, in view of the possibility, as of April 2021, that the COVID-19 pandemic will affect performance results, Casio set a target of reducing the amount of generation of waste, etc., by 2% compared to fiscal 2020 (equivalent to 3,679 tons) and the target of a waste recycling rate of at least 95%, based on the medium- and long-term targets. Efforts are being made to achieve these targets.

Reducing water usage

│Approach and Policy

Seeking to help build a society that recycles resources, Casio sets annual targets for water usage throughout the Group and is advancing initiatives at each business site.
Based on the characteristics of Casio’s business, the majority of water usage in its business activities is used by employees, with water usage for production activities limited to such things as washing a few components. On the other hand, Casio’s main sites have used environmental management to push forward the minimization of water use, which has advanced to a certain level.

│Targets and Performance

For fiscal 2021, Casio continued to implement water use reduction measures, setting a target of achieving a 1% reduction compared to fiscal 2020 (equivalent to 376,000 m3). Efforts are being made to achieve this target.

FY2021 Target FY2021 Performance Evaluation FY2022 Targets
Reduce water usage for Casio Group by at least 1% compared to the previous fiscal year Reduced water usage for Casio Group by 16.7% compared to the previous fiscal year Reduce water usage for Casio Group by at least 2% compared to FY2020
