De-carbonization and Environmental Impact Reduction

Energy Saving Measures

  In 2010, Rubycon was designated as Specified Business Operator according to Act on the Rational Use of Energy, and has been working to save electricity by 1% or more for the entire Company, specifically by saving electricity of lighting, air-conditioning, and production facilities.
  Recent results of the savings are as follows (in conversion of per unit consumption) :

YearEnergy Saving Result
20165.4% decreased
20172.4% decreased
20180.1% decreased
20192.7% increased
20208.0% decreased

Towards reduction of GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emmissions

  We have been working on CO2 emmissios reduction by 1% or more, and recent results of the reductions are as follows:

YearEmission% change v. previous year
20165,770t-CO23.5% decreased
20176,267t-CO28.6% increased
20185,351t-CO214.6% decreased
20195,017t-CO26.2% decreased
20204,641t-CO27.5% decreased

  We use Electric Vehicles (EVs) for inter-company transportation to and from neighboring Company buildings and Group companies, as part of our environmentally friendly efforts to de-carbonize our businesses.
  Furthermore, we achieved size & weight reduction and performance improvement of our products through R&D to respond to customers requests. We continue further improvement in size reduction to reduce CO2 emission and contribute on energy conservation.

To promote Recycling

  • Waste Vinyl
    Maintaining 100% recycling achievement
  • Paper
    Promoting recycling of Paper Waste to reduce the amount of Paper Waste disposed as Combustible Waste, and the recycling rate of 2020 is 71%
  • Other Waste
    Promoting recycling by ensuring thorough separation of Industrial Waste, and our ultimate goal is Zero-Emission
