In 2012, the Oji Group began participating in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an NGO that has a huge database of environmental information related to countermeasures against climate change, water, and forests. We respond to the CDP water questionnaire, which is aimed at assessing water resource management by the Oji Group ,and disclose our answers of water questions on CDP Website.
We also support the intent of the Japan Water Forum (JWF), an NPO that collaborates with diverse related parties including not only those in Japan but also United Nations organizations, international organizations, development banks, national and municipal governments, private companies, researchers, and NGOs of other countries. We have been participating in JWF as its member since its establishment in 2004.
:Oji Fibre Solutions recognises that effluent colour discharges at Tasman Mill are an amenity concern for the local community, so colour reduction is a continuing priority. Tasman Mill co-manages its wastewater treatment infrastructure with the neighbouring newsprint operation, Norske Skog Tasman. We are committed to a colour reduction-programme with a goal to reduce colour to the regulated target of 10 tonnes per day (Pt-Co Equivalent) by 2035.
