Zero Emission

Goal

Goal

Achieve zero emissions (recycled waste: 98% or higher) at all global production sites as of FY2020.

Our Stance

To help realize a resource-circulation society, OMRON is working to increase the recycling rate at all production sites worldwide.

FY2017 Overview

  • - Japan: Achieved zero emissions at 18 production sites.
  • - Overseas: Increased target production sites to work harder on zero emissions. As a result, 2 sites in Europe, 2 sites in the Americas, and one site in Korea achieved zero emissions.
  • - Group-wide: Achieved zero emissions at 23 sites out of 40 sites.
  • - Recycling rates: 99% in Japan and 77% overseas.
    The rate for overseas was down by 9% points because of emissions of non-recyclable waste at a site in Shanghai, China, which had a large-scale drain facility renovation (6% pt), and a low recycling rate at a newly acquired facility (3% pt).
