Toshiba has set a number of objectives that will further reduce the environmental impact of our operations and products.

Elimination of PVC - We plan to introduce alternatives for the few remaining uses of PVC in our laptops by 2009.

Elimination of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) - Toshiba plans to use alternatives for all remaining uses of BFRs in their laptops by 2009. Toshiba's objective is to identify alternatives that will have a reduced impact on the environment and health while not compromising product function, performance or quality

Target of zero emissions by 2010

Target of 25% reduction in CO2 emission rate by 2010

Improve product eco-efficiency by 2.2 times by 2010

Unless otherwise specified, the targets are based on comparison with FY2000 and cover manufacturing and non-manufacturing sites worldwide. For the purpose of evaluating activities, rates used as indicators are based on physical amount (net output).
