Volume of Waste Generated

The volume of waste generated by the Nisshinbo Group was 74.2 thousand tons, up 14% year on year. This volume was also up 16% per unit of sales. Primary reasons were an increase in the volume of waste generated in the TMD Germany region and an addition in the volume of waste generated due to the addition of Nanbu Plastics Co., Ltd.

The recycling ratio worsened by 1.0% compared with the previous fiscal year.
