This system collects and processes data on environmental impact caused by each operational process—including procurement, design, manufacturing, transportation/sales, use, maintenance/services, and collection/recycling—as well as by overall operations. Besides identifying the environmental impact of overall operations, the system automatically collects environmental data from the operational flow of each process, and such data is used to support PDCA in environmental improvement activities carried out at each process. Efforts are being made to improve the system so that it can be used more easily for data analyses and improvement activities as well as for the expansion of the items and range of collected data and improvement in precision. In fiscal 2008, we completed a system to obtain information on CO 2 emissions from the transportation phase on a global scale as well as a system to deal with the REACH Regulation.
This system enables "Corporate Environmental Accounting" in a timely manner by collecting data on environmental conservation effects obtained from the Environmental Impact Information System and environmental cost data obtained from the accounting system.
