General Overview of the 9th Environmental Plan in Fiscal 2019

During the first year of the 9th Environmental Plan (2019-2021), steady progress was made toward achieving the targets of the plan. However, with regard to "Improvement of the final disposal rate of waste" among the initiatives toward creating a recycling-based society, the fiscal 2019 target failed to be achieved this year, leaving us an issue to work on. We will establish an action plan based on a long-term perspective and further improve on it, particularly for activities aimed at realizing a low-carbon society.
