The Third MHI Group Environmental Targets (FY2015–FY2017) call for a reduction in waste generation and set the target of reducing the landfill waste disposal ratio throughout the Group in Japan to less than 0.6% by fiscal 2017. In fiscal 2016 , we achieved 0.39% which meets our target.
In addition, with regard to the reduction in emissions of chemical substances, we have set the target of reducing unit atmospheric emissions of VOCs—focusing on xylene, toluene, and ethylbenzene, which are emitted in large volumes—by 3% of the fiscal 2014 figures by fiscal 2017. Whereas we had targeted a 2% reduction against fiscal 2014 levels in fiscal 2016 , we did not meet this goal. Instead, these unit emissions rose by 7%.
