The Seventh Environmental Action Plan

Based on Toshiba Group’s Environmental Future Vision 2050, Toshiba Tec Group has formulated the Seventh Environmental Action Plan for the period from FY2021 to FY2023, which consists of “response to climate change,” “response to a circular economy,” “consideration of ecosystems,” and “enhancement of the basis of environmental management.” We set targets for each fiscal year to promote relevant activities. We achieved all fiscal 2021 targets.
