The Results (or Progress) of the Work

We review the results (or progress) of the work toward every year.

Item Target Activities in FY2018
Greenhouse gasses

Reduce COemissions by 23% from the FY2005 level in FY2020.

  • CO2 emissions from energy sources at production and research sites
  1. On a location basis,1) the figure for FY2018 was 25,200t, a 5.6% reduction from 26,700t in FY2005.
  2. On a market basis,2) the figure for FY2018 was 26,100t, up 6.2% from 24,600t in FY2005.
  • Scope includes CO2 emissions from energy sources at production and research sites.
【ECO VISION 2050】
  1. Reduce CO2 emissions by 55% for Scope 1 and Scope 2 as well as 30% for Scope 3 in FY2030(compared to FY2017). 
  2. Eliminate CO2emissions for Scope 1 and Scope 2 as well as reduce emissions 60% for Scope 3 in FY2050 (compared to FY2017).
【ECO VISION 2050】
  1. Scope 1 and 2 for FY2018 show a market-based reduction of 5.5%, and a location-base increase of 4.9% (comparing with FY2017).
    (As for Scope 3, the progress is not reported yet because there are categories that have not been calculated at this time.)
Water consumption
【ECO VISION 2050】
  1. Reduce water resource consumption (water intake) by 15% per production volume unit in FY2030 (compared to FY2017).
  1. In a comparison with FY2017, water use volume increased 8.7% per unit of production quantity.
Waste
【ECO VISION 2050】
  1. Maintain final disposal of industrial waste less than 1% or less every year (*).
    * Defining the ratio of non-recycling (landfill and simple incineration) to less than 1% of the total amount as a standard of ONO’s “zero emission”.
  2. Reduce industrial waste emissions by 15% per production volume unit in FY2030 (compared to FY2017).
  3. Promote reductions in the environmental burden in business activities.
  1. Zero emissions goals were achieved for another consecutive year, building on the success of FY2017.
  2. In a comparison with FY2017, industrial waste volume decreased 34.9% per unit of production quantity.
  3. In FY2018, the proportion of environmentally-friendly products purchased as business supplies was 76.4%.
    (Since December 2004, we have made purchases through the @office online business supply service offered by Kokuyo Co. Ltd. (We have been using this system to help in our efforts to achieve green procurement goals.)
Chemical substance management

Reduce the amount of PRTR Class I designated chemical substances released into the environment.

  1. The release and transfer volume of the registered chemical substances was 10.01 tons, which we have kept at an extremely low volume.
Pollution control management

Thoroughly comply with emission standards, and continue to make efforts to prevent any environmental accidents or complaints from local communities.

  1. All analyses of air and water pollution revealed that we complied with emission standards. Also, there were no environmentally related complaints from local communities.
Evaluation of environmental efficiency

Comply with guidelines issued by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan.

  1. Disclosed data on environmental cost, capital investment, economic effect, and environmental conservation effect. 
  2. Evaluated environmental efficiency. 
  3. Environmental efficiency was up by 56.9 points over FY2005.
  • 1) Location-basis CO2 emissions volumes are calculated based on progress management coefficients of the Federation of Pharmaceuticals Manufacturers’ Associations of Japan (FY2005 values).
  • 2) Market-basis CO2 emissions volumes are calculated based on emissions coefficients published by each electric power company.

Environmental Initiatives

SBT Initiative (Science Based Targets initiative)

Our medium- to long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets were approved in June 2019 as science-based greenhouse gas reduction targets from the international initiative "Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)." Our targets are categorized as the strictest “1.5℃ target.”

Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

Ono expressed our support in October 2019 for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), which was established by the Financial Stability Board to encourage the disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities.

Water Project

The "Water Project" is a public-private partnership project launched after the "Basic Law on the Water Cycle" enacted in 2014, which states that governments and companies should work together to protect the water cycle in Japan. Ono participated in October 2019.

RE100 (Renewable Energy 100%)

RE100 is an international initiative, aiming to source 100% of the electricity consumed in its business activities with renewable energy, which is operated by The Climate Group, an international environmental NGO which promotes climate change countermeasures, in partnership with CDP, an international NPO, that encourages companies to disclose and manage environmental impact information. Ono participated in RE100 in June 2020.

Promotion of Environmental Management

Ono has established an environmental management system in which the President, Representative Director is in charge of environmental management. Under the President, Representative Director, Corporate Executive Officer / Head of Corporate Communications oversees company-wide environmental management, and the CSR Promotion Section manages the Environmental Management Committee. Members of the Committee are chosen from relevant departments and are responsible for specific on-site monitoring and promoting environmental management. Each production and research sites with a major environmental impact has a subcommittee to work on environmental issues. Each production site makes continuous efforts to reduce environmental impact under an ISO 14001-compliant environmental management system. We have also acquired ISO 14001 certification for all production sites in operation. In addition, under the subcommittee, which is a subordinate organization of the Environmental Management Committee, for the three priority items, "realization of a decarbonized society," "realization of a water recycling society," and "realization of a resource recycling society," we have started to study the measures to reduce the environmental impacts. The progress of these efforts is to be reported at least once a year at the Executive Committee chaired by the President.
In addition, to reduce environmental risks, employees involved in operations that could have an impact on the environment receive necessary training on environmental management.
We also have a structure to minimize environmental impact arising from emergencies by providing training and on-site education and formulating emergency-preparedness manuals.
