Use of Water

Use of Water Policy

The FPCO Group is aware that it is an important environmental challenge to preserve water resources as part of the basic infrastructure of society. These days, the water shortage is worsening globally due to desertification and other factors.
Japan, where our Group’s businesses are based, has yet to experience a chronic water shortage. In view of the water sources consumed for the production of imported materials, however, global water problems such as water shortage and water contamination are by no means unrelated to our Group.
With regard to the use of water, the FPCO Group believes that it is necessary to understand the circumstances in the individual regions of its production bases and make effective use of limited resources.
We will implement appropriate management that responds to the issues regarding water resources that are specific to the individual regions and make effective use of water resources in an effort to cut our consumption of water resources.

Non-Numerical Targets for Individual Processes

  • - Introduce water filtration systems to recycling plants by 2020 for the purpose of reusing water and reducing the consumption of clean unused water.
  • - Introduce cooling water circulation systems to production plants as standard by 2020.

Performance

  • - All our recycling plants for trays and PET bottles have introduced water filtration systems.
  • - Production plants have introduced cooling water circulation systems.
