The Chugai Group has set environmental goals to continuously promote environmental protection activities from a medium-to-long-term perspective. We are estimating an amount of environmental investment for facility upgrades and accelerated execution of existing investment plans to achieve the Mid-Term Environmental Goals 2030.
Estimated environmental investment over the next 10 years
We estimate a cumulative total of ¥107.2 billion in environmental investment through to 2032 in Research Div., and Pharmaceutical Technology/Manufacturing Technology Div., which have relatively high environmental burdens (Research Div.: ¥19.6 billion, Pharmaceutical Technology/Manufacturing Technology Div.: ¥87.6 billion).
Breakdown of environmental investment：
- Fluorocarbon reduction
- CO2 reduction
- Waste and water countermeasures
- Soil contamination expenses etc.
Internal carbon pricing
For the introduction of sustainable energy, we use the internal carbon pricing (ICP) as one of the investment indicators and we set ICP as “7,700 JPY/t-CO2” based on the purchase prices of green power certificates, non-fossil certificates, and electricity with the environmental added value.
