Reducing water usage
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.
For this reason, minimization of water usage at the main sites that have continued to operate an environmental management system for many years has advanced to a certain level. Casio has therefore reached the situation where there are big fluctuations only in years with circumstances that differ from usual business activities, such as the discontinuation or new establishment of sites.
In fiscal 2019, water usage was 418,000 m3, a 17% reduction from fiscal 2018, driven by the establishment of targets for production sites and efforts to reduce water usage. Going forward, Casio will keep working to reduce water usage.
