Amount of Waste Generated*1, Landfill Rate

The Yamaha Group in Japan generated 6,000 tons of waste in fiscal 2012, a 800 ton decrease compared with the previous fiscal year. This was due to efforts to promote 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 thoroughgoing sorting activities and measures aimed at reducing waste by enhancing extraction rates. The overall landfill rate was 0.22%, thanks in part to the ongoing implementation of the Zero Emissions*2 initiative by Yamaha Corporation and Group manufacturing companies in Japan. The increase in landfill rate is due to the impact of efforts to eliminate asbestos in equipment and building materials inside the premises.

  • *1 The weight of waste generated includes industrial waste, non-industrial wastes (excluding outsourcing from the government) and valuable wastes. In fiscal 2011, Yamaha changed the calculation method and the amount recycled is no longer included as waste.
