Toshiba Group held its 15th Toshiba Group Environmental Expo at the company’s head office in Tokyo, with the theme of “Prevention of Global Warming.”

The company’s exhibits focused on recent activities for environmental preservation and environmentally friendly products, including plant-based plastic technology. The company says its plant-based plastics can realize approximately 30-percent less CO2 emissions during its life cycle compared to ABS resin plastic.
Toshiba’s “Environmental Vision 2010” initiative aims to double the group’s overall product and business process eco-efficiency by fiscal 2010, compared to fiscal 2000. In 2005, Toshiba reported business process eco-efficiency improvements and, compared to 1990, a 29-percent reduction in CO2 emissions from energy sources and a 29-percent reduction in greenhouse gases other than CO2.
