Toshiba estimates that its new “Greening by Products” and “Greening by Technology” products being developed will reduce CO2 emissions by 750 million tons by 2020. The company also has reached 410 percent year-on-year growth in recycling ink cartridges and printing products. Toshiba has partnered with Close the Loop Inc. to use the recycled products to create “eLumber,” a composite material. Although the company’s offices and factories release large amounts of greenhouse-gas emissions, it is making serious efforts to cut back. A new factory being constructed at the Yokkaichi Operations (PDF) site is expected to release 12 percent fewer emissions than its existing factories.
