Itochu Enex Co., Ltd. (CEO: Kenji Okada, headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, hereafter Enex) hereby announces that the beginning of the use of its “GTL fuel” in March 2020 in heavy machinery used in the demolition of the former head office building of the Toda Corporation (President and Representative Director: Masanori Imai, headquartered in Chuo-ku, Tokyo, hereafter Toda).
Toda has set targets for reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions through its business activities under the Eco-First Promise1 and the SBT initiative2, and has been contributing to the realization of a carbon-free society by achieving these targets. “GTL fuel” will enable the effective reduction of CO2 emitted when using diesel fuel in construction machines, which are essential for the company’s construction businesses.
Furthermore, “GTL fuel” produces less smoke than diesel fuel, as it is a fuel with limited environmental impact, emitting less nitrogen oxides (NOx) and PM (particulate matter, such as soot and dust. This is propelling the company’s consideration of expanding its use to upcoming tunnel construction sites and other projects.
Based on its corporate philosophy, “the Best Partner for Life and Society,” the Enex Group aims to ensure a stable supply of energy and help realize a low-carbon society, reduce environmental impacts and contribute to a sustainable society in its role as an energy company.
