Nikko Chemicals has revealed that carbon emissions from electricity usage at its fellow Nikkol Group factories in Japan have been reduced to zero.
Nippon Surfactant Industries, with both factories in Utsunomiya and Nasu; Bergerac Japon and its facility in Nasu, as well as Kobo Dispatek at its Utsunomiya site have converted to using carbon-free power.
That means carbon emissions from electricity generation will be reduced to zero in all factories of the Nikkol Group and its affiliate companies in Japan.
This will lead to a yearly decrease of approximately 2,752 tons compared to the levels in 2019.
In addition, Nikkol Group is also reducing power usage by installing solar panels, furthering minimizing our CO₂ emissions through the conversion of our boiler fuel, and implementing other various measures like filtering rainwater to flush toilets to minimize our environmental impact.
“We will continue our efforts for the entire Nikkol Group, in order to achieve our goal of becoming carbon neutral,” said a spokeswoman.
