  • Volatile Organic Compounds: organic chemicals which have a high volatility (i.e. a high vapor pressure at room temperature). This term covers 100 substances designated by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment
  • Target values are based on our current business plan. These target values may be subject to future review in case of substantial changes to our business plan.
  • Detailed targets are established each fiscal year, and disclosed on our website
  • Our environmental initiatives plan is shared among Toyota Boshoku and Toyota Boshoku group companies
