The TAIYO YUDEN Group primarily produces electronic components for delivery to our customers, set manufacturers. These electronic components have a life cycle with only a small environmental impact during use. The bulk is during production, with the main environmental impact arising from energy and water consumption, emissions (including CO2) in the course of manufacture, waste, and waste water. The TAIYO YUDEN Group is striving to reduce environmental impact by first identifying and analyzing in detail these environmental effects and then taking such measures as minimizing the resources applied and conserving both energy and resources by improving production processes. TAIYO YUDEN Group products are used in electrical and electronic equipment, automobiles, and other products which become waste once their product lifetime is over. We are therefore also striving to remove environmental impact substances at this product stage.
