Top Management Commitment

We promote the environmentalmanagement practices as an all-purpose device manufacturer that contributes to resolving social issues.

Foreword

With the increasing seriousness of global environmental problems, such as global warming, we feel that it is vital to take advantage of opportunities to work cooperatively with others around the world in facing these challenges. For instance, we must join others in adopting the Paris Agreement at COP 21, adopting sustainable development goals (SDGs) as spelled out at the United Nations Summit, signing the United Nations Responsible Investment Principles (PRI) for Government Pension Investment Funds (GPIF), and commencing ESG (Environment, Society, Governance) investments.
With these opportunities in mind, the company, as a member of the Toshiba Group, promotes Toshiba’s “Environmental Vision 2050”*, which strives to create a society where human beings live in harmony with the globe by the year 2050. We are promoting environmental activities according to an environmental action plan that determines specific activities and target values.

Contributing to resolving social issues with device technology and low environmental burden manufacturing

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation was established in July 2017 as part of a reorganization within the Toshiba group. Its goal is to become a comprehensive device manufacturer of discrete semiconductors, mixed signal ICs, logic ICs, linear sensors, and hard disc drives, that meet our customers’ various needs and intended uses. For instance, in the automotive and industrial fields, our customers desire device technology that must not only ensure stability and safety, but also must conserve energy and resources (through miniaturization of equipment), increase efficiency, and enhance thermal countermeasures. Thus, we would like to engage in design of products with both the environmental and societal impact in mind. 
On our operations side, we have many manufacturing facilities within Japan as well as overseas. In particular, our proportion of Toshiba Group’s environmental impacts related to production - CO2 emissions, waste and water usage - is high, and this trend will expand as future business expansion. As such, we bear great responsibility in ensuring that our manufacturing processes are properly managed to minimize environmental impact in each region.
We encourage feedback from many sources, including our industrial and academic partners as well as our employees, on how we can continue to improve our environmental management practices, in addition to the energy-saving efforts, continued over many years.

Community Outreach

We seek to cultivate open and trusting relationships with the local communities in which we operate. For that reason, we engage in various community outreach activities. We visit neighborhood elementary schools to provide environmental awareness lessons to students. We engage in conservation efforts that help protect the habitats of endangered or threatened species. We also provide guided tours of our manufacturing facilities and give demonstrations about our environmental practices. In the future I would like to continue such activities while thinking about new ideas.
