From the viewpoint of effective use of resources, by reducing amount of factory waste and increasing amount of recovering valuables and resources recycled, we are working to eliminate amount of landfill*1 to as close to zero.
We achieved 99.4% of the factory waste recycling rate*2 in fiscal 2017.
We continues activities to improve factory waste recycling rate and promote zero emission*3 in fiscal 2018.
*1 Amount of landfill = Amount of waste disposed at landfill site
*2 Factory waste recycling rate = Amount of resources recycled / (Amount of resources recycled + Amount of landfill)
*3 Zero emission = Factory waste recycling rate: 99% or higher(Definition by Panasonic)
