Eco Action: Kansai Electric Power Group Company Concrete Action Plans
Item FY 2016 results* FY 2017 Evaluation (Reasons for increase/reduction)
Targets Results*
Reducing office electricity consumption 60.5 GWh Reduce as much as possible 62.1 GWh
(2.7% increase)
At every company, we made efforts to conserve energy in offices, but the total amount used grew over the previous fiscal year due to office expansion, increased operation of factories and equipment, growth of work volume and other factors.
Reducing office water consumption 248,400m3 Reduce as much as possible 246,400千m3
(0.8% reduction)
Even though some companies had increased usage due to greater use for melting snow in the winter, for example, we were able to reduce the amount of use from the previous fiscal year thanks to efforts at every company to conserve water in offices.
Improving fuel efficiency of company vehicles 9.26 km/L Increase as much as possible 9.38 km/L
(1.4% increase)
Our fuel efficiency improved compared to the previous fiscal year because each company has strictly enforced the practices of “eco” driving and stopping the engine when idling, as well as adopted vehicles with high fuel economy, for example.
Reducing printer paper consumption 902.6 t Reduce as much as possible 867.8 t
(3.9% reduction)
Even though some companies used more because their work volume increased, the amount decreased compared to the previous fiscal year as a result of thorough efforts at each company, including the use of double-sided copies and other paper reduction efforts.

* The calculation of results covers 42 companies in FY 2016 and FY 2017. Parentheses ( ) show comparisons with the previous fiscal year.
