Data of Environmental Practices

Overview of Environmental Impact (FY2017)

The Yokogawa Group calculates the annual volume of the energy and material inputs for its business activities (including manufacturing, sales, and service) as well as their annual output of waste and other matter into the air and water. This analysis helps the Group effectively use resources, improve energy efficiency, and improve the waste recycling rate.

Environmental Conservation Costs (FY2017)

In accordance with the Ministry of the Environment's "Environmental Accounting Guidelines (2005 edition)," Yokogawa calculates the costs of its environmental activities and quantifies their economic impact.
