Energy and Resource Saving Results

SMK aims to improve efficiency of its energy usage as an important management policy to help prevent global warming. We are also working to reduce the discharge of industrial waste and achieve zero emissions (i.e. zero landfill waste) by using out resources more effectively.

SMK Corporation (nine sites in Japan) and consolidated subsidiaries (three in Japan and 18 overseas)

CO2 emissions

Electric CO2 emission factor for domestic sites: The Electric Power Council for a Low Carbon Society. Electric CO2 emission factor for overseas sites: 2005 – 2011: Subject to the standards of the IEA (International Energy Agency), from 2012: Subject to the standards of the DEFRA (Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs). CO2 emissions for fuels are subject to the standards found in official announcements by the Ministry of the Environment. In addition, data for past fiscal years was corrected by updating CO2 emission factor.
