Environment Activities

Activities for reducing environmental impacts

To maintain sustainable global environment, we perform various activities to reduce environmental impact.

 

Toshiba Carbon Balance Program

It is clear that human activities are affecting the global climate, so it is vital that we find ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

This is where carbon balancing can help. Carbon balance is a way to reduce the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere by balancing or cancelling the amount of these gases through participation in environmental projects.

 

Tree Planting on 18 December  2021

A total of 33 volunteers from Toshiba and e-waste partners (18 companies) took part in this year Plant-A-Tree program. This program was in collaboration with National Parks Board and Garden City fund on 18 Dec 2021 at Changi Beach Park. A total of 11 trees were planted. The name of species planted is: Ardisia elliptica (native endangered species), Memecylon ovatum (native endangered species),  Tristaniopsis obovate (native, critically endangered species).

This environmental passion helps us all unite our individual and corporate goals to contribute to an environmental friendly and greener Singapore.
