Zero Emission

Goal

Achieve zero emissions*1 at all global production sites as of FY2020.

  • *1 "Zero emissions" means construction of a resource-recycling system by effectively utilizing waste as raw materials, and others.

Our Stance

To help build a resource-circulation society, OMRON implements the zero emissions initiative at all its production sites worldwide, as it aims to increase the recycling rate. OMRON considers a recycling rate of 98% or higher to be zero emissions for all practical purposes.

FY2016 Overview

OMRON’s overseas production sites have been faced with increasingly strict regulations, particularly in Greater China and Asia-Pacific. In response, OMRON investigated whether these sites promote recycling in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Based on the findings, a plan was formulated to further promote recycling. In fiscal 2016, OMRON asked third-party organizations to assess three sites in Greater China, five sites in Asia-Pacific, three sites in the Americas, and one site in Europe to see if treatment of waste is subcontracted to recycling agencies and properly treated. As a result, it was confirmed that all 49 recycling subcontractors of these production sites were properly treating waste. The recycling rate was 99% in Japan and 86% overseas.

In fiscal 2017, OMRON has set out to address below environment-related social issues, in accordance with our identified sustainability issues and long-term goals. OMRON will continue to strive for the achievement of zero emissions at all its production sites worldwide by fiscal 2020.
