TOKYO -- Tokyo Electron, Japan's top maker of chipmaking equipment, is spearheading an effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions throughout its supply chain as Apple's push to have its suppliers go carbon-neutral this decade reverberates through the industry.

Under its E-Compass sustainability initiative announced in June, the company is taking steps to lower CO2 emitted from transportation, including switching to rail and reducing packaging. It is considering ways to cut assembly-related emissions as well.
