Reduction of Environmental Burden

Reduction of Environmental Burden

Fundamental Policies

The Oji Group recognizes that reducing the environmental burden is some material issue toward realizing a sustainable society.
Under the Environmental Action Programs 2030, we will set voluntary management values that are stricter than legal values related to wastewater and exhaust to achieve zero environmental impact.
And more, we promote pollution prevention through thorough legal compliance.
In addition, we are promoting the effective use of resources such as water resources and waste.

Targets

Purification of wastewater and exhaust gas

  • Wastewater: BOD*1, COD*2, SS*3 intensities
    15% reduction compared to FY2018
  • Exhaust gas: SOx*4 emission intensity
    15% reduction compared to FY2018
  • Reduction of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)*5
    Maintenance of VOC emission intensity at half FY2010 level or lower
    (FY2010 result 0.61 kg/million yen)
  • *1BOD: Biochemical oxygen demand
  • *2COD: Chemical oxygen demand
  • *3SS: Suspended solids
  • *4SOx: Sulfur oxides
  • *5VOC: Volatile organic compounds
