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 or our corporate philosophy and we work to limit our environmental impact to achieve a low-carbon, recycling-based society.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
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 growth cannot remain unlimited. The impending global warming and its consequences force all of us in industry, politics and society 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 be easily dismantled with 3 tools only. 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.

It is clear that human activities are affecting the global climate, so it is vital that we find ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. This is where carbon offsetting can help. Carbon offsetting is a way to reduce the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere by balancing out the amount of these gases through participation in environmental projects. At Toshiba we are committed to the environment and with the help of the carbon offsetting experts at co2balance we have devised a scheme with which we can offset the carbon footprint of your system. We not only include the CO2 that is being emitted during the production and transportation of our products, but throughout the entire product life-cycle. Therefore, depending on the scheme in place, we factor in a set number of printed pages to also cover any ongoing environmental impact.
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.
