In fiscal 2017, both the amount of waste generated and landfill disposal amounts increased compared to fiscal 2016. The primary reason for this increase was an expansion in the scope of data collection through the addition of new data from Group companies in Japan and overseas. Atmospheric emissions of VOCs amounted to 1,150 tons in fiscal 2017, a decrease from fiscal 2016.
MHI Group will continue its efforts to reduce waste generation in fiscal 2018 and beyond in accordance with The Fourth MHI Group Environmental Targets. We will also continue to work to reduce VOC emissions by setting internal targets.
