In its CSR Roadmap 2025, which covers fiscal 2023-2025, the Group set a numerical target for a waste recycling rate of 87% or higher in the final year, fiscal 2025. In order to achieve this goal, the Group has designated group companies with low recycling rates as of the end of fiscal 2022 as companies requiring attention and is taking steps to further reduce the rates at these companies.
