Each MGC Group company is striving to reduce waste by promoting the 3Rs of waste (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), and to undertake the proper disposal of waste in accordance with law.
Basic Approach to Resource Use
The MGC Group promotes efficient utilization of fuel and other resources (including product raw materials) and development of innovative process technologies at its domestic and overseas production sites and contributes to reduction in GHG emissions.
Reducing Waste (MGC Group)
Amount of waste generated/Intensity of estimated amount of added value
Recycled amount/Intensity of estimated amount of added value
Final disposal amount/Intensity of estimated amount of added value
Zero Emissions (Non-consolidated)
The non-consolidated MGC defines zero emissions as final disposal of waste of 0.3% or less of waste generated, and works to encourage recycling and reduction of final disposal.
The zero emissions rate for fiscal 2020 was 0.51%, and although the final disposal volume shows a downward trend, zero emissions have not been achieved since fiscal 2014. Increases in the amount of final disposal since fiscal 2014 have been due to ongoing temporary circumstances, including waste generated in conjunction with a business reorganization, and the occurrence of waste catalyst. In addition, waste activated sludge that previously was sold for value is now disposed of in landfills, contributing to the increase in final disposal volume.
