Amount of Waste Generated*1, Landfill Rate

  The Yamaha Group in Japan generated 6,300 tons of waste in fiscal 2013, a 300 ton increase compared with the previous fiscal year. We are promoting the in-house treatment of such waste materials as sludge acid and waste alkali utilizing internal effluent treatment facilities as well as valuable wastes through sorting activities and measures aimed at reducing waste by enhancing extraction rates, but waste increased because of changes in the amount of production and changes in the work process. The overall landfill rate was 0.05%, as we continued to achieve zero emissions*2 following the success in fiscal 2012. Note that the increase in landfill rate in fiscal year 2012 is due to the impact of efforts to eliminate asbestos in equipment and building materials inside the premises.

  • *1 Beginning in fiscal 2011, we stopped including the amount recycled in factories in the amount of waste generated.
  • *2 Zero Emissions is defined by the Yamaha Group as limiting the weight of final waste sent to landfill to less than 1% of waste generated
