Environmental Evaluation by External Parties

Toshiba Memory Corporation's history of awards is introduced below.

Received the "Award for Distinguished Service" from Re-Lifestyle (NPO) (FY2018)


Toshiba Memory Yokkaichi Operations received the "Award for Distinguished Service" from Re-Lifestyle (NPO), an organization engaging in the PET-bottle cap collection business, in May 2018.

With 500 PET bottle caps, one person can receive a polio vaccine. At the Yokkaichi Operations, they have collected and donated over one million PET bottle caps.

Toshiba Environmental Solutions Corporation cooperates in collecting PET bottle caps at the Yokkaichi Operations, and Toshiba Logistics Corporation cooperates in delivering the caps to Re-Lifestyle, which is located in Kanagawa Prefecture.

With the aim of contributing to the growth of children around the world, the entire Yokkaichi Operations will continue these activities into the future.

Receiving the METI Minister's Award at the Fiscal 2014 Circular Resource Techniques and Systems Awards


Toshiba Memory Yokkaichi Operations, AGC Inc., and Organo Corporation received the METI Minister's Award at the Fiscal 2014 Circular Resource Techniques and Systems Awards hosted by the Resources Recycling Promotion Center of JEMAI.

The "Collection and Recycling of Artificial Fluorite from Fluoric Acid Waste Liquid" project, conducted jointly by the three companies, gained a high evaluation from the perspective of effectively using recycled resources. This is what led to the award.

Organo Corporation's fluorine recovery facility (crystallizer) recycles fluoric acid in wastewater from the Yokkaichi Operations into high-purity crystalline artificial fluorite. This acid is used as an etching solution for semiconductors at Yokkaichi. AGC's Chiba Plant then purchases this valuable raw material to make its own fluoric acid. The amount of collected artificial fluorite is sufficient for use on a practical scale. The project began in April 2011 and remains in good shape.

* The idea behind the Circular Resource Techniques and Systems Award is to promote recycling business by inviting applications from across industry. Businesses and initiatives that earn awards are those demonstrating sophisticated technologies and advanced systems that contribute to reducing waste, reusing used articles, and recycling recycled resources, thereby helping to promote and expand such businesses and initiatives.

Receiving the Chairman's Award in the Fiscal 2014 Awards for Distinguished Services in Promoting 3R


Toshiba Memory Yokkaichi Operations received the Chairman's Award in the Fiscal 2014 Awards for Distinguished Services in Promoting 3R recognizing the activities of all participants. The 3R Promotion Council has hosted the event for two consecutive years, beginning last year.

Despite the increasing trend of waste generation in proportion to the increase in production, the Yokkaichi Operations has been able to reduce the waste generated per unit of production. This is achieved by taking upstream measures such as reducing the amount of chemicals used, and leveraging collection technologies such collecting wastewater at each individual stage. In addition, for generated waste, the Operations are actively promoting recycling that centers on material recycling (promoting the conversion of waste into recyclable materials) and reusing waste liquids. As a result, the total waste output has fallen dramatically per unit of memory capacity, which has led to a significant reduction in total waste discharged.
