Preventing Global Warming

The Kikkoman Group has been promoting activities to reduce CO2 emissions (considered the main cause of global warming) at all of its factories, plants and offices.
The Group set objectives for its Medium-term Environmental Preservation Goals FY 2016-18 and began its activity in FY 2016, aiming to achieve the new objective.

[Objectives of Medium-term Environmental Preservation Goals FY 2016-18]

1

To reduce the CO2 emissions per unit of production at the domestic manufacturing divisions by 20% or more from the FY 2006 level by FY 2018.

2

To reduce the CO2 emissions per unit of production at the major overseas manufacturing divisions by 3% or more from the FY 2015 level by FY 2018.

3

To reduce the CO2 emissions at the domestic sales and back-office divisions annually by 1% or more from that of the previous fiscal year (FY).

In FY 2016, the Kikkoman Group earnestly worked on energy savings and fuel switching, and thus achieved the following:

1

The CO2 emissions per unit of production at the domestic manufacturing divisions were 0.154t-CO2/t, 17.6% lower than the FY 2006 level (0.187t-CO2/t).

2

The CO2 emissions per unit of production at the major overseas manufacturing divisions were 0.173t-CO2/t, 1.1% lower than the FY 2015 levels (0.175t-CO2/t).

3

The CO2 emissions at the domestic sales and back-office divisions were 4,100t-CO2, 2.4% lower than the FY 2015 level (4,200t-CO2),and the Group achieved the objective.

Individual activities for reducing CO2 emissions are compiled in the Kikkoman Group Environmental Preservation Activities Case Book.

The Kikkoman Group will continuously work to achieve higher objectives in furthering reduce CO2 emissions.
