Material Balance of Business Activities for Fiscal 2017
(Overall Picture of the Environmental Impact)
Kawasaki has drawn up a summary of the impact of our business activities on the environment during fiscal 2017.
Compared with fiscal 2016, energy consumption, materials, and water, which are inputs, all increased. In terms of outputs, although there was a decrease in air pollution and waste, the amount of wastewater increased.
Furthermore, compared with the average for fiscal 2014 to fiscal 2016, which is the period of the Eighth Environmental Management Activities Plan, although inputs increased, there was a reduction in the outputs of SOx and NOx emissions and wastewater.
For the purpose of ensuring credibility, the Kawasaki Group received a third-party verification from SGS Japan Inc. on greenhouse gas emissions of the Group.
