AGC to Reduce its Annual CO2 Emissions by 6X through Energy-Saving Products
 

Tokyo, July 12, 2014 (JCN) - AGC announced that it will enable avoidance of as much as six times the AGC Group's own annual CO2 emissions in 2020, through its energy-saving and energy-creating products.

The glass industry is energy intensive. Seriously acknowledging the environmental load of its own business activities, the AGC Group is working to reduce the impact on the environment through improvements to its manufacturing processes.

At the same time, the Group develops, supplies, and distributes environmentally related products that contribute to energy conservation and creation to ensure that its contribution will outweigh its environmental impact.

The AGC Group forecasts its own annual CO2 emissions to be about 13 million tons in 2020, while the target for reducing CO2 emissions generated through its energy-saving & energy-creating products is 80 million tons, or six times the projected annual emissions of the Group, an amount equivalent to the annual CO2 emissions of approximately 16 million households, or the CO2 emissions from 30 advanced LNG thermal power stations.

AGC also aims to increase the percentage of environmentally related products, including energy-saving & energy-creating products, within total
sales to 30% by 2020.
