Activities to Reduce Landfill Waste

Target for waste reduction Zero emissions : < Group target (for FY2020) > 0% Zero emissions rate of (percentage of landfill waste vs. total emissions)

The Nabtesco Group is fostering the activities to reduce landfill waste to zero based on the approach of 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle)—the basic practice for establishing a resource-circulating society—for all types of emissions generated in the course of our business.

In FY2018, the separation of landfill waste was delayed due to an increased production load at some plants, resulting in a temporary increase. The zero emissions rate was 0.1%, which was below the target for FY2018. This year we will continue to promote the 3Rs in order to achieve the Zero Emissions goal of 0%* by FY2020.

The Nabtesco Group landfills metals and waste glass that do not contain hazardous substances.

Measures to Reduce Hazardous Waste

The Nabtesco Group implements thoroughgoing waste management, so waste containing hazardous substances is not emitted.

Measures to Reduce Use of Raw Materials

By reusing components and reducing the production of new ones, Nabtesco is working to minimize the use of resources.

We have been fostering the MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) business to optimized the use of resources and expand sales in the service field.
