Coinciding with the implementation of our new mid-term management plan, TOTO WILL2022, the TOTO Global Environmental Vision was revised and put into effect in April 2018. This vision acts as a driving force for TOTO WILL2022. By strengthening the promotion of this vision, we aim to further integrate our management and CSR activities and increase our corporate value.
In light of the changing times and social trends, we have unveiled the new TOTO Global Environmental Vision
In 2010, the TOTO Group initiated its environmental vision, TOTO Green Challenge, in order to address the ever-growing issue of protecting the environment. This vision hinged on products and services, manufacturing, and social contribution and human resources development, and was a new step toward validating the link between our corporate activities and the environment. As a natural next step, in 2014 we formulated the TOTO Global Environmental Vision to evolve our environmental contributions to a more global scale while working to resolve the specific environmental concerns of each country and region. Working to tackle common global issues, TOTO established and promoted a set of Global Environmental Goals toward which we will work to conserve water by 2017. In October 2017, in light of the changing times and social trends, we updated the TOTO Global Environmental Vision, combining the themes of the past with social themes closely related to our business. We began rolling out these efforts in fiscal 2018.
In the TOTO Global Environmental Vision, our global efforts are organized into three themes: Cleanliness and Comfort, Environment, and Relationships. Each theme has a set of targets and specific initiatives determined based on our aims. We are working toward achieving these targets by fiscal 2022. Through promoting the TOTO Global Environmental Vision, the TOTO Group will contribute to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
