TAIYO YUDEN Group primarily produces electronic components for delivery to set manufacturers. The environmental load in life cycle of these electronic components is smaller environmental impact during use than during production.
We classify biodiversity/climate change/resource utilization/atmosphere and waste/water source, rivers, and peripheral area by life cycle of the environmental load and our environmental activities.
FY2020 Material Balance
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 wastewater. The Taiyo Yuden Group is striving to improve our environmental impact by first identifying and analyzing in detail this environmental impact and then taking such measures as minimizing the resources applied and conserving other energy and resources by improving production processes. The 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 hazardous substances from these products.
