Environmental Costs
For greater efficiency in environmental protection
Basic concepts for calculating costs in fiscal 1999
(1) Costs will be determined at the production and
R&D bases of TDK and its domestic subsidiaries.
(2) Calculations will be made based on Environmental
Agency guidelines.
(3) The amount of capital investment in plant and
equipment shall be the amount paid in fiscal 1999.
(4) Depreciation for equipment is not included in cost
calculation.
The Reason for Ascertaining
Environmental Costs
TDK is working to determine environmental costs
with the objective of gaining an accurate
understanding of the expenses necessary for its
corporate activities taken in consideration of
environmental preservation, so that it can make
managerial decisions to promote more effective
environmental preservation activities. As one of the
means to determine environmental costs, TDK newly
created a special accounting code for a part of
environmental costs in October 1999.
Future developments
In the future, TDK will consider the relationship between
environmental costs and the reduction in environmental
impact as well as profitability and will consider the
introduction of an environmental accounting system.
