The TOTO Group recognizes the impact of climate change as a business risk, and works to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas based on the scientific grounds that are consistent with the Paris Agreement toward the realization of a carbon-neutral and sustainable society. On average, our products are used over a 20-year period, and if we look at this from the perspective of the entire life cycle this means the period of product use accounts for over 90% of our overall CO2 emissions. By actively working to reduce emissions in this stage of the life cycle, we aim to realize both comfortable and eco-friendly everyday lifestyles.
In regard to CO2 emissions from our business activities, we are promoting CO2 reduction plans that take into account analyses of climate change by 2050 and our long-term business growth by 2030. Under these plans, we are actively introducing renewable energy sources on a Groupwide basis.
We agree with the international initiatives toward the realization of a carbon-neutral and sustainable society.
