TOKYO, August 9, 2023 -- OKI (TOKYO:6703) has released Issue 241 of the OKI Technical Review (*1). The theme of this special feature is "OKI's Contributions toward Green Society and Environment." Based on the OKI Group's recognition that the environment is both a social issue and business opportunity, we're promoting environmental management by reducing the CO2 emissions generated in our business activities and concurrently by creating and expanding our range of environmentally contributing products. This special feature introduces specific initiatives and the underlying concepts.
The OKI Group offers both OKI Eco Products—hardware products that achieve low-power consumption and resource saving (e.g., size and weight reduction)—and OKI Eco Solutions that are products and services to help solve environmental challenges like climate change mitigation and adaptation, resource recycling, and pollution prevention. OKI positioned these products and solutions as "OKI Environmentally Contributing Products" and make efforts to create and expand such products. Meanwhile, in September 2022, we revised the global warming prevention (decarbonization) targets of the OKI Environmental Vision 2030/2050 (*2) medium- to long-term environmental targets to be in line with the SBT (*3) criteria. We are now actively promoting measures to reduce the CO2 emissions generated in our business activities, such as by enforcing energy conservation and adopting renewable energy at our sites.
This special feature presents examples of OKI Environmentally Contributing Products and our research and development initiatives.
This issue includes the following sections:
