Sustainability Management and Awareness

As a global company, we have a global responsibility to set clear, obtainable objectives that include lowering emissions and helping both biodiversity and the environment. We couldn’t do this without the help of every employee. So we place huge importance on environmental education, awareness campaigns and active, wide-scale promotion of internal and external environmental activities.

As solutions for various environmental issues, including climate change, are called for, the Toshiba Group has developed the Environmental Future Vision 2050 – a corporate vision that envisages lifestyles in harmony with the earth. We endeavour to contribute to society with passion and determination, to create new value through revolutionary innovations and realise this vision. Sustainability is a core part of our corporate philosophy and everything we do is aimed at achieving a low-carbon, recycling-based society.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We always conduct our business activities by bearing in mind our status as a corporate citizen of planet Earth. We give top priority to human life, safety and compliance in practicing CSR management. Download Toshiba Tec's Integrated Report.

Environmental, Social, and Governance

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, companies are increasingly recognising the importance of integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into their operations. As a company that provides workplace solutions to other organisations, we understand that our commitment to ESG is not just a responsibility, but a necessity for businesses.

At Toshiba, we firmly believe that sustainability and responsible business practices are crucial for long-term success. We are dedicated to minimising our environmental footprint, promoting social well-being, and upholding strong governance principles throughout our operations. By embracing ESG principles, we aim to create a positive impact on the world around us while delivering exceptional value to our suppliers and customers.

Environmentally Conscious Products

We use our insights as a manufacturing company to reduce a product’s environmental impact throughout its lifecycle. By sourcing eco-friendly materials, reducing energy consumption and banning certain chemical substances, we systematically improve the green credentials of our products. We also maximise sustainability in every part of our business from packaging and logistics to marketing and servicing.

 

Our Carbon Zero Scheme

We’re refreshingly proactive about improving the air we all breathe. Our Carbon Zero Scheme enables us to offset the CO2 emissions of all our products by investing in projects that save or absorb an equivalent amount of this greenhouse gas. This means our emissions are balanced to become ‘Carbon Zero’, which in turn means we can all breathe easy, safe in the knowledge that we’re helping your business without harming the environment.

Circular Economy

The idea of a circular economy is based on a very simple fact. We live on a planet with limited resources – which includes the ability of our environment to deal with pollution. If resources are limited and emissions need to be avoided, then there cannot be unlimited growth. The impending global warming and its consequences force all of us in industry, politics and society in general to act. 

This is why Toshiba offers solutions for the sustainable use of resources. Our products and services offer many opportunities and innovations towards the reuse of materials. The number of materials used in our devices is kept as low as possible, are recyclable and can easily be dismantled. 

Our commitment to circularity extends to toner cartridge recycling and reuse. We prioritise relieving end users by collecting used cartridges, ensuring minimal waste production.

Energy efficient product design, service that covers the entire life cycle of a product and the avoidance of packaging waste are what make up the circular 3R-Design: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Today, at least 50% of components used in similar printer devices are identical and 95% of our multifunction printer can be recycled or even reused. The vision that accompanies a circular economy is that of a completely regenerative global supply chain that functions without using up limited resources.

Green Business

We regularly invest in projects, technology and people to help make the world a greener, healthier and safer place to work and live. We can also help our customers understand how they can reduce their own environmental impact and reduce waste.

All Toshiba production facilities are certified to the international standard ISO14001:2008 and further to this, our company is fully compliant with the ISO14001:2008 standard. This voluntary commitment to maintaining environmental management programmes guarantees that all Toshiba products and activities are produced and carried out in line with the strictest environmental criteria, which allows for improved waste management, reduction in consumption of energies and materials and improved distribution impact.

As part of our commitment, we also hold PAS 2060 accreditation through a series of frameworks and programmes including lower emission vehicles, annually offsetting all CO2 emissions from our company’s energy consumption and travel use and through the implementation of greener technologies. PAS 2060 has been developed by the British Standards Institute to help organisations achieve and demonstrate carbon neutrality within business activities.

Recycling

We take our role in preserving the environment seriously and encourage our customers to do the same. To help minimise our impact, we offer toner recycling for our printer cartridges, adhere to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, as well as work with accredited reprocessors to recycle waste we produce.
