Saving Logistics Resource and CO2 Reduction

Our Stance

Our Stance

OMRON strives to reducing the use of packing materials for transportation by employing a returnable container system and reducing the weight of packing materials. By so doing, OMRON will promote improvement of transport efficiency in order to reduce CO2 emissions at the logistics stage.

FY2018 Overview

As for conservation of resources at the logistics stage, in fiscal 2018 the amount of packing materials used was up 9% in Japan and up 28% abroad from the previous fiscal year. This result is due to a temporary increase in product inventory in response to production line transfers and consolidations of production facilities. Going forward, OMRON will continuously seek to reduce its usage of transport packing materials by revising the packing method, promoting reuse of packing materials and the use of lighter packing materials, and reducing the use of auxiliary packing materials.

Reducing CO2 emissions at the logistics stage

Overseas (Dalian, China), we changed our component supply structure to shorten component supply lead time significantly. The above-mentioned improvements have reduced the distance and frequency of shipments between suppliers and factories, leading to an 81 percent reduction in CO2 emissions.
