Results achieved in fiscal 2012 Evaluations Plans for fiscal 2013 and after RelatedpagesReduced lead usage 30% during fiscal 2012. Regarding newfriction materials for rolling stock, the Company has alreadycompletely eliminated lead usage.BComplete the development of lead-free sinteredmaterial in fiscal 201341Reduced CO2 emissions 16% compared with fiscal 1990and 18% per year on average between 2008 and 2012.Our efforts included waste heat recovery from in-housepower generation and the introduction of energy-savingcompressors.AImprove CO2 intensity more than 1% comparedwith fiscal 201238ISO 14001 certifications were renewed at six locations,including AKBT (Thailand).AContinue to firmly root ISO 14001 in operationsand steadily renew certifications36Maintained zero emissions. AContinue to maintain zero emissions; generateno direct landfill disposal40In response to comments that the program was overly technical,we introduced simpler experiments and began offeringa greater degree of choice to the trainees.AConsider introducing the online education programimplemented at ABCT (United States) toJapan36Improved unit energy consumption 1.6% compared with fiscal2011 (from 0.257 to 0.253).? Introduced vehicles meeting fiscal 2015 energy-efficiencystandards.?Revised the driving route between Saitama and Okayama.?Eco-friendly driving activities and seminars.AContinue efforts to reduce unit energy consumption1% or more on a year-on-year basis46Continued study of alternative materials for the rubber additiveincluded in the REACH SVHC candidate list. We cooperatedwith our suppliers to study and propose alternativematerials for reducing the energy usage and environmentalload.A? Encourage suppliers to upgrade their environmentalmanagement systems?Continue supply chain survey using IMDS**44Introduced a next-generation processing machine for frictionmaterials that reduces energy usage 50% during the thermoformingstage.AFurther enhance energy-saving and resourcesavingtechnologies45Evaluations: A 100% accomplished / B not accomplished
