Product Recycling Product Recycling


Basic stance

It is the Advantest Group's basic policy to take active steps to ensure that the products it sells are reused and recycled after they are retired, and to buy back products that are not expected to be reused so that the resources are recycled.

Recycling policy

  1. Realize 100% collection of recyclables through manual disassembly.
  2. Make clear to whom recycling is to be commissioned, and secure traceability.
  3. Promote the conservation of the global environment in collaboration with customers.
  4. Properly dispose of harmful substances

Fiscal 2013 results

During fiscal 2013, the Group recycled 10 retired products for a total of 55 tons of recycled resources, achieving 100% collection of recyclables. In addition, the Group has established recycling traceability for each system. This was made possible through the cooperation of customers, intermediaries, and waste disposal businesses across the country. We will further improve work efficiency, reduce the burden on customers, and encourage environmental preservation.
