We are undertaking a variety of efforts to reduce direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions by business offices.

In fiscal 2017, unit greenhouse gas emissions decreased by approximately 2.7% year on year. Against our Eco-Vision 2020 targets, emissions (unit per consolidated sales) were down 29% compared with our base year (fiscal 2008).

Initiatives to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Initiative Company Content
Energy Conservation Measures Sysmex Corporation We introduced an electricity management system (demand monitoring function)1 to understand and control overall electricity use. We used this analysis to introduce energy-saving measures tailored to business office characteristics.
  • Monitoring room temperatures in summer and winter
  • Installing moving detectors to activate staircase lighting
  • Upgrading to energy-saving air conditioning equipment
  • Introducing LED lighting, other
Sysmex Europe Introduced a new air conditioning system
Shifted to high-efficiency equipment Sysmex Corporation At the Solution Center, switched to high-efficiency air conditioning equipment that does not use gas
Sysmex Europe Switched to LED lighting in principal reagent filling rooms
Sysmex Wuxi Switched to a refrigerant with lower global warming potential in cold storage
Introduced renewable energy Sysmex Corporation At i-Square, installed solar panels and introduced natural lighting in working areas to save electricity
Sysmex Europe Used all renewable energy for electricity
Sysmex UK Shifted to renewable energy for some electricity
Employee Awareness Sysmex Malaysia Gave Greener Sysmex Points to employees who use hybrid vehicles to commute to work, reduced energy use and decreased CO2 emissions
Sysmex Australia Encouraged employees to use public transportation to commute to work
Sysmex India Confirmed that all employees who use their own cars to commute to work have received PUC certification2

1 Functions for continuously measuring maximum electrical demand (demand value) for 24-hour periods and sounding an alarm if the level exceeds target values, as well as reporting on electricity use on a daily and monthly basis.

2 An acronym for pollution under control, PUC certifies that vehicle emissions are below pollution control standards. Indian law requires vehicles to undergo semiannual PUC testing, and PUC certification is obligatory. (The PUC certification period is one year for new vehicles.)

Decreasing CO2 Emissions from Domestic Company's Cars

To curtail fuel use and reduce CO2 emissions from some 400 company cars in Japan, we are making use of our intranet to visualize travel distances and gasoline used by each Company car and heighten driver awareness. We are also introducing fuel-efficient vehicles and hybrid cars. CO2 emissions by Company cars in Japan were down approximately 6% year on year.

Complying with Related Laws and Regulations

Based on the Energy Conservation Act, Sysmex Corporation has submitted to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry a medium- to long-term plan that summarizes its regular reports aggregating annual energy usage amounts and its energy reduction plan. Going forward, we will continue promoting energy conservation activities throughout the Company to achieve these non-binding targets in Japan.
