Amidst the growing number of public concerns about the global environment, such as marine plastic pollution, climate change, and insufficient use of waste plastics, the Japanese government formulated the Resource Circulation Strategy for Plastics in 2019, leading to the Plastic Resource Circulation Act, which came into effect in April 2022. This act requires businesses and the national and local governments to disclose publicly their efforts to reduce and recycle industrial waste from plastic products.

In this context, Tokyo Century is disclosing the following targets and results regarding the discharge volume and recycling rate of industrial waste from plastic products, in accordance with the guidance by the Japan Leasing Association.
