Promoting Eco-Friendly Physical Distribution

We strive to reduce environmental burden at the distribution stage of products in addition to manufacturing stages.
In addition to reducing CO2 emissions by making transportation more efficient, we are also promoting eco-friendly physical distribution based on the 3Rs.

Reduction of Environmental Impact Arising from Distribution

Tracking CO2 Emissions in Domestic Distribution and Overseas Distribution

Until fiscal 2015, we set targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions every year based on our 5th Environmental Action Plan, and worked to realize them. As a result, we achieved a specific outcome in relation to CO2 emissions during domestic distribution (a reduction of more than 70% in emissions per unit of net production against figures for fiscal 2007) .

Having realized this result, in our 6th Environmental Action Plan in effect from fiscal 2016, we did not stipulate a new set of targets for the reduction of emissions during distribution, but made these reductions a feature of standard operation.

Going forward, we will continue to implement distribution management that considers the environment, monitoring emissions on a daily basis.


  1. In fiscal 2016, our CO2 emissions during domestic distribution were 342 tons per month, a 67% reduction in CO2 emissions per unit of net production against fiscal 2007
  2. Murata’s CO2 emissions during distribution for the entire world were approximately 10,400 tons per month.
