CSR Action Plans
Key points of our FY2012 action plans
In this fiscal year, continuing the management considering environmental and CSR issues, we will aggressively work on businesses related to renewable energies including biomass, geothermal, and wind power, as well as those related to water, placing a specific focus on desalination plants.
Major CSR Initiatives
World's Largest Wind Farm Goes into Operation
The Shepherds Flat Wind Project (845 megawatt), in which we participate through U.S. subsidiary Tyr Energy, began commercial operation in stages from February 2012.
Once completed in 2012, the project will generate enough energy to supply more than 235,000 average U.S. homes, and will achieve a reduction of about 1.5 million tons of carbon dioxide per year, equivalent to the annual amount of carbon dioxide from approximately 200,000 passenger vehicles.
This project is the second project implemented under the memorandum on business collaboration concerning co-investment in renewable energy worldwide, concluded between ITOCHU and General Electric Company.
Supporting disaster control by supplying medical equipment
We supply equipment for disasters to local municipalities, Self-Defense Forces, police, and fire department, etc.
Japan Medical Partners, for which ITOCHU is the leading member, is a non-profit organization consisting of private companies. It helps ensure the continued provision of medical services at times of disaster and supports local municipalities in educational activities and operations involving countermeasures against infectious diseases and disasters.
We create “products and services,” “information,” and “operational knowhow” by combining and merging the functions of member companies of Japan Medical Partners. By providing them, we spread the correct knowledge about disasters daily, help take related initiatives, and help ensure the continued provision of medical services in the event of disaster.
