The AGC Group formulated the AGC Environmental Indicator in 2006 to independently assess the environmental impact of its manufacturing activities (details shown below). By using this indicator, the Group can calculate how much the environment is affected in relation to improvements in its economic performance while making further improvements.

Based on the AGC Environmental Accounting Calculation Manual created in line with the Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005 (Ministry of the Environment), the AGC Group calculates its environmental accounting data to quantify managerial resources spent in reducing environmental impact and resultant effects. In 2014, the scope of calculations was expanded to include the entire Group.
(Note) Some data used in the environmental conservation cost calculation process, is estimated based on actual performance data from AGC Asahi Glass.
