Our company has set a voluntary target to reduce them by 30% below the scal 2013 level by scal 2030 and plans to invest in necessary equipment. What is important here is to both reduce CO2 and increase productivity. Comprehensive energy saving not only reduces CO2 emissions but also reins in manufacturing costs. We will make efforts to reduce CO2 emissions during transportation, in addition to the emissions by our company itself.Environmental problems concerning plastic waste have been attracting attention in recent years. To prevent an enormous amount of plastic waste from ooding into the ocean and protect the ecosystem, there is a global trend toward plastic-free living.
