Material Balance of Business Activities
Impact of Business Activities on the Environment during Fiscal 2018
Kawasaki has drawn up a summary of the impact of our business activities on the environment during fiscal 2018.
Compared with fiscal 2017, energy consumption and water, which are inputs, both increased. In terms of outputs, air pollution (excluding SOx), waste, and the amount of wastewater all 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 output of SOx emissions.
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.
