Environmental Conservation Cost
Environmental Accounting Review for FY 2016:
Toyo Tires Group invested the highest amount in Global Environmental Conservation at 81 million yen. This includes the purchase of LED lighting, high-efficiency transformers, and new air conditioning equipment. The highest expense incurred was in R&D, following Pollution Prevention and Recycling. We continue to spend a large amount of money in these areas.

- The calculations conform to the Environmental Accounting Guidelines (2005 edition) published by the Ministry of the Environment.
- Depreciation of investments is included in cost.
- For costs spanning more than one category, only the costs related to environmental protection were included.
- In cases where environmental protection costs cannot be clearly separated, a proportional calculation was made using the “environmental ratio” considering the degree of reference to the environmental protection efforts.
- R&D costs include the costs of efforts to develop eco-friendly products and use alternative materials.
- Personnel expenses were calculated by man-hours and average wages.
Environmental Conservation Benefit
Environmental conservation benefit amounted to 176 million yen, mainly from cogeneration, fuel switch, energy-saving activities and profits from recycling and the sale of waste.
