Background of the Goals
While we are required to effectively use limited resources and
contribute to a recycling-oriented society, we achieved TDK’s zero
emissions* by FY2006 and have been continuing the promotion of
efforts to maintain that level. Also, from the viewpoint of the
effective use of resources, we are promoting initiatives to
control the generation of waste at TDK.
Further, we regularly visit recyclers to verify that recycling is being implemented.
- At TDK, zero emission is defined as not processing any waste discharged from business sites by simple incineration treatments or placing it into landfills and eventually recycling 100% of resources (excluding items that cannot be recycled alone due to legal restrictions).
Fiscal 2020 Goals and Achievements / Evaluations and Future Activities
|Fiscal 2020 Goal||Achievements|
|Improve waste amount basic-unit 1.5% of the previous FY||Worsened by 14.2% compared with the previous FY|
Evaluations and Future Activities
The total amount of waste generated in FY2020 increased by 23.9%
from the previous year to 92,137 tons due to an increase in the
number of employees and the production volume. In addition, the
waste amount basic-unit worsened by 14.2% compared with the
previous year, and our target was not achieved.
Going forward, we are committed to promoting comprehensive process improvements and continued efforts to reduce waste in terms of both efficient utilization of resources and improvement in the yield rate.

TDK-Lambda Ltd. (Israel) has done away with in-factory use of
plastic cups for beverages by providing personal use water
bottles (in picture) to all its employees.
