Taking steps to reduce carbon footprints
We’re proud of our Carbon Zero Scheme and the benefits it provides. Developed with the help of carbon offsetting experts, CO2balance, it allows us to calculate and offset the total footprint of a Toshiba device from parts procurement, manufacture and transportation, providing organisations like yours with a complete carbon neutral device upon delivery.
Through our Carbon Zero Scheme, we’re delighted to be a huge supporter of CO2balance and their projects. This organisation has been running community-based environmental projects throughout Africa that, as well as saving carbon emissions, are providing a range of positive impacts to thousands of families.

Sustainable Development Goals
We’re very proud to be part of the bigger picture. The 2030 Agenda was presented by the UN in 2016 as a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It recognised that eradicating poverty is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development and encouraged all countries to work collaboratively to achieve this.
This is a hugely ambitious project and one we’re honoured to be a part of. The UNs 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include worldwide recognition of human rights, gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
With impacts that go beyond carbon offsetting, through our Carbon Zero Scheme, we’re working alongside other responsible companies and countries to help realise these goals. Through improving access to water, enabling income generation, encouraging responsible consumption of resources and much more, we aim to build a better future for everyone.
