In addition, Toshiba aims to contribute to society by sustaining a healthy Earth and create value with the products and services it delivers to the global community. The company will endeavor to meet specific goals and address environmental issues through two approaches: Energy Vision and Eco Products Vision.

The Energy Vision focuses on enhancing nuclear power business and promoting deployment of high-efficiency thermal power plants and CO2 fixation, while also working to advance the capabilities of power transmission networks and realize new energy sources. The Eco Products Vision stresses the enhanced development of environmentally friendly products, the improved assessment of product life cycles and impacts, and the manufacture of products that ultimately provide a higher consumer value.
