Climate Change and Energy Use

Climate Change

Climate Change Policy

FPCO regards climate change as an environmental issue that affects business activities. We will address climate change issues together with suppliers, parties to whom products and other goods are sold and other stakeholders with a view towards realizing a low-carbon society.

CO2 Reduction Targets

FP Group’s Long-term CO2 Reduction Targets

FP Group’s CO₂ Emissions (*)

  • Reduce total CO2 emissions by 20% by FY2020 (compared to FY2003)
  • Reduce CO2 emission factors (by number of trays sold) by half (compared to FY2003)

*The total sum of CO₂ emissions from all the bases, including production plants, distribution centers and offices, of the FPCO Group subject to reporting under the revised Act on Rationalizing Energy Use and CO₂ emissions from logistical operations within the scope of responsibility assumed by specified consigners.

Target Setting for Individual Processes

Working groups in our development, production, logistics, office and sales functions under the FP Corporation Eco Action 50 set targets for individual processes.

<Targets for Investment Process>

  • 1. Lighting equipment … e.g. replacement with and introduction of energy-efficient fluorescent lamps and LED lamps
  • 2. Air conditioning equipment … e.g. replacement with new air conditioning equipment and addition of inverter control units
  • 3. Material development … e.g. research on resins with low CO₂ emissions
  • 4. Production and recycling equipment … e.g. addition of recycling plants and introduction of high efficiency energy lines

<Targets for Operation Process>

  • 1.Lighting equipment
    • ・Review of lighting hours
    • ・Switch-off of unnecessary lighting
    • ・Review of illumination
  • 2.Air conditioning equipment
    • ・Operation at an appropriate temperature
    • ・Switch-off of unnecessary air conditioning
    • ・Cleaning of air conditioners, ventilation fans and other equipment
  • 3.Material development
    • ・Research on weight and wall thickness reduction for products
    • ・Increase in sales volume of products containing recycled resins
  • 4.Production equipment
    • ・Consideration of efficient production processes
    • ・Expansion of procurement of recycled materials

Quantitative CO₂ Target Setting for the Period Until FY2018

Working groups in our development, production, logistics, office and sales functions under the FP Corporation Eco Action 50 set quantitative targets.

  • 1. Reduce CO₂ emissions from production activities per product to 85% of the 2007 level.
  • 2. Suppress total CO₂ emissions from logistical activities to 116.1% of the 2015 level.
  • 3. Reduce CO₂ emissions from business vehicles by 35%.
  • 4. Increase the ratio of Eco-Trays to general-purpose formed PS containers to 60%.
    Increase the ratio of Eco APET to APET products to 95%.

Support for the Japan Climate Initiative

The FPCO Group supports and participates in the Japan Climate Initiative. It is a network of businesses, local governments, non-governmental organizations and other entities working positively on measures against climate change for information distribution and the exchange of opinions. We have made a commitment to working on the front lines towards realizing a carbon-free society proposed by the Japan Climate Initiative.

Energy

Energy Policy

FPCO regards climate change as an environmental issue that affects business activities. For the purpose of realizing a low-carbon society, we will proceed with the efficient use of energy and take actions for reducing energy consumption.

Actions for Reducing Energy Consumption

For the purpose of reducing our energy consumption, the FPCO Group takes actions that serve this purpose, including accelerating the replacement of conventional light sources with LEDs and introducing high efficiency equipment through the scrap-and-build method.
