Main initiatives and results in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020
Promoting Complete Elimination of Halogen-Based Solvents
We are taking initiatives to manage and reduce hazardous chemical substances in order to realize a healthy and environmentally-safe society. The Nikon Group has established the Hazardous Chemical Substances Guideline and management criteria for handling of chemical substances in accordance with risks to the environment and health and restriction on product inclusion. In the year ended March 31, 2020, we focused on efforts to completely eliminate halogen-based solvents in the manufacturing process. With regard to HCFCs, alternatives have been decided and their use will be scheduled to take effect by the end of the fiscal year ending March 2021. HFCs and methylene chloride will be replaced with alternatives by the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023.
