Understanding Sustainability: Toshiba, Intuitive and the Environment

There are many different ways a business can become sustainable: reducing waste, preventing pollution, adopting clean energy, conserving water, greening the planet by planting trees, using sustainable materials, making products sustainable and adopting sustainable business travel policies. Before we can make these changes to become more environmentally friendly, let’s take a look at what sustainability actually means.

What is Sustainability?

Firstly, it is imperative to really understand what sustainability is and why is it important. According to ActiveSustainability, sustainability is all about “protecting the planet, halting climate change and promoting social development, without endangering life on Earth or leaving anyone behind.” (What is sustainability? (activesustainability.com)) In an ever-changing world, more and more companies are choosing to strive toward becoming carbon negative.

Toshiba: A Green Business

Companies such as Toshiba Tec UK Imaging Systems Ltd take an environmentally friendly approach to their business, with their focus on providing environmentally conscious products and their carbon zero scheme, Toshiba is able to promote their sustainable practices and work towards a more sustainable future.

Toshiba Tec comment on their website that “Our Carbon Zero Scheme enables us to offset the CO2 emissions of all our products by investing in projects that save or absorb an equivalent amount of this greenhouse gas.” (Toshiba Tec | Sustainability.) More importantly, Toshiba Tec UK is working towards the idea of a Circular Economy. Their goal is to work towards a limitation of resources to ultimately meet the climate goals set by the Paris Agreement of 2015. Toshiba prioritises the sustainable use of resources, as their products and services offer many opportunities for construction innovations, avoidance, reuse of materials or recycling.

In reality, this means:

• The number of materials used is kept as low as possible

• These materials are recyclable and easily removed

• Products are designed as efficiently as possible

• Toshiba service covers the entire lifecycle

• We avoid packaging waste
