Environmental Protection

Substances Subject to the PRTR Act

In accordance with the Act on Confirmation, etc. of Release Amounts of Specific Chemical Substances in the Environment and Promotion of Improvements to the Management Thereof (PRTR* Act), Mitsui Chemicals submits a report to the Japanese government each year declaring the amounts of designated substances produced or used by the Company that were released into the environment or transferred elsewhere.
In fiscal 2017, the amount of emissions decreased approximately 23 tons compared with the level recorded in fiscal 2016. While favorable production trends contributed to an increase in the amount of chemicals used in fiscal 2017, the volume of emissions decreased thanks to emission reduction measures at each plant and the transfer of operations at the Kashima Works.
As calls for the management of chemical substance emissions to be improved and strengthened increase going forward, we will continue to manage emissions and to further strengthen our endeavors.
