To reduce CO2 emissions, we are striving to decrease the consumption of transport fuel, increasing transportation efficiency by improving loading methods and doing joint deliveries in cooperation with shipping companies and sales dealers.
In fiscal 2022, we have achieved reduction of 9.5% compared to the 2013 level through strengthening information sharing regarding initiatives within the Group companies.

I plan transportation efficiency by investigating all company horses for courses style, and coming true and will aim at the Environmental load reduction in future.
Current state and future vision for procurement and transportation
TOTO carries out "the cooperation delivery" beyond the fence in the delivery of the system kitchen in the every prefecture except the part area in Cleanup Corporation having a competing relation on a sale side and a distribution side.

(2) Previously, pallets had had empty spaces.By changing to sheet pallets, we were able to fill in the empty spaces, and loading efficiency improved by 11%.
