Result in fiscal 2021


The recycling rate for Toray Group was 85.9%, down by 0.3 percentage points year on year, and the Group did not achieve its target of 86% or higher. This stemmed from an increase in waste disposal due to equipment troubles at group companies outside Japan.
Going forward, Toray will strive to achieve this target by promoting recycling and focusing intently on group companies outside Japan that generate particularly large amounts of waste.
