NITTO DENKO GROUP CSR & Annual Report 2012

CSR & Annual Report 201227which indicates the environmental load from corporate activity vis-a-vis the added value created from that activity. It is obtained by dividing the added value*1 created from corporate activity by Environmental Impact *2 entailed in the creation of the added value. By using the fiscal 2005 Environmental Management Index level as a benchmark, we aim to double our environmental efficiency by fiscal 2015.The “Environmental Management Index” declined to 115 in fiscal 2011, compared to 136 in fiscal 2010. The ratio of sales to Environmental Impact was almost unchanged, but the added value decreased compared to the previous year because material and energy costs increased. We will seriously address the deterioration in the index. Moreover, in order to realize the target value for fiscal 2015, we will improve the development of more energy-efficient processes and products not using organic solvents and of those low in their generation of industrial waste. In addition, we will increase our efforts to create high value-added products.*1Added value (unit: million yen) = sales amounts – (material costs+outside order expenses+energy costs)*2A unique unit utilized by the Nitto Denko Group, indicating Environmental Impact (quantity of CO2 emission equivalent), into which we convert energy purchased, industrial waste generated, VOC purchased and the like through the use of a coefficient.(unit: ton-EI)Environmental Management Index* (consolidated)*Added Value / Environmental Impact01002003004005006007008009001,0001,1001,2001,3001,40001020304050607080901001101201301402005363162201151100115115102136115430184224501211263744615918643117820043319920120072008200920102011EnergyVOCIndustrial WasteOther GHGIndex(1000ton-EI)(Index)(FY)FY200520072008200920102011Added Value(million yen)318,098410,835328,264298,890409,971348,278EnvironmentalImpact (ton-El)876,846980,608790,200809,100832,300837,900Index0.3630.4190.4150.3690.4930.416Relative Index100115115102136115Recycling: 47,481 metric tonsIndustrial waste and externallyprocessed waste:47,779 metric tonsINPUTOUTPUTWater consumed: 4,250,326 metric tonsWastewater: 3,347,999 metric tonsProducts:150,019 metric tonsCO2 emissions:399,526 metric tonsAmount of incineration of industrial waste and solvents: 43,355 metric tonsLandfill disposal: 298 metric tonsEnergy recyclingAmount of materials recycled:18,952 metric tonsAmount of energy recycled: 45,249kℓ(in crude oil equivalent)Raw materials purchased(including solvents):222,531 metric tonsSolvents purchased: 38,723 metric tonsSolvent vapors emitted into the air: 750 metric tonsEnergy purchased: 144,669kℓ(in crude oil equivalent)Waste plastic recycled: 6,182 metric tonsSolvents recycled: 12,770 metric tonsMaterial recyclingManufacturingprocessMaterial Flows in Business Activities (non-consolidated)Environmental Impact and Environmental Management Index (consolidated)
