Environmental Accounting (Fiscal Year 2009)
Business Offices in Japan
Environmental accounting is the means for pursuing the achievement of environmental management by analyzing the “environmental protection effect” in return to the “environmental protection cost” and improving the cost-effect. This was introduced to us from FY2002. Summarization was made for each quarter and the resulting analysis was reflected for carrying out more efficient environmental management.
In FY2008, a variety of highly energy-efficient equipment was installed in the R&D Center building, which was completed on the premises of KYOCERA Document Solutions Head Office. Moreover, environmentally-friendly equipment was also installed in the toner manufacturing facility in the Tamaki Plant.
